REVIEW: How can you possibly read a book with tears pouring out of your eyes and your nose running with snot? It’s not easy. That is exactly what happened to me while trying to read The Menu by Steven Manchester. I gave this book 5 stars but would gladly give it more.
This book brought me closer to my faith. Not my religion but, my faith. I love his descriptions of our eternal journey and how we enter life on earth and return back to our home with God, the father. This book was so beautifully written!
The main character was Phinn and I could sympathize and relate to his journey. His wife was Maddy and boy was she a sweetheart! There were other great characters that I enjoyed. I found the story plausible and believable. I can’t tell you how much this book meant to me and how much I love it.
If you read The Shack and loved it, you need to read this one too. They are not exactly alike but, you could say they are in the same family. I don’t reread books but, I may have to make an exception with this one. There is a lot to absorb.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
SYNOPSIS: From New England’s Storyteller Steven Manchester comes a soul-awakening novel about love, faith and family. During Phinn Reed’s romantic quest, he discovers that even through great suffering and loss, he is never alone—not ever—and that we are all eternally connected.
“If you liked The Shack, then The Menu is a must read!” – John Lansing, Bestselling Author
Phinn Reed enters the world with God’s promise of finding his soul mate. With heaven’s memories erased, his romantic quest teaches him that the heart often sees clearer than the eyes—and that not everyone has ordered the same items from The Menu. This inspirational novel is heartfelt evidence that love stories come in many different forms.
