Book Review: Life Everlasting by Robert Whitlow

Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Re-publication date: August 2, 2011

In this sequel to Life Support, Baxter Richardson's future continues to hang in the balance following a fall off of a cliff that left him at death's door. His wife, Rena, keeps changing her story regarding exactly how his fall occurred, and also finds herself under suspicion in the death of a police officer. Rena's lawyer, Alex Lindale, must endeavor to figure out what the truth really is. In the midst of the legal drama, Alex and church music minister Ted Morgan explore the connection between worship, prayer, and miracles, while testing the future of their own relationship.

Life Everlasting was a satisfying conclusion to the Santee Series, providing an enjoyable read while neatly resolving the numerous mystery aspects introduced in book one. Whitlow threw in some nice twists, and I found the characters to be absorbing and realistically portrayed. Rena's descent into madness was chilling, and provided a perfect contrast to Alex's own stability and competency. The character I found the most intriguing was Ted, whose intimacy with God shone through. Although I found some of the scenes to be a tad slow in nature, those who enjoy reading legal dramas with spiritual overtures will greatly enjoy Life Support. A solid recommendation, I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
