And If I Fall
by: Robin Reardon
reviewed by: Becky
Jude Connor's rural Idaho hometown is a place of strong values and high expectations. For those who fit into the local church's narrow confines, there's support and fellowship. For those who don't, there's ostracism in this life and damnation in the next.
Jude wants desperately to be saved--to believe with the fervor of the charismatic Reverend Amos King, whose sermons are filled with brimstone and righteousness. But every time Jude thinks he's found the right path, there's a fork in the road, and Truth seems to be in a different direction.
As much as Jude craves the certainty the church offers, he finds himself at odds with it. Without intentionally rebelling, he befriends Pearl Thornton, considered an unrepentant heathen; he craves the support of Gregory Hart, whose church standing is questionable; and the feelings he has for his friend Tim Olsen make him fear for his own soul. But then Reverend King offers Jude sanctuary, special guidance, and a path into the Light.
Will Reverend King be able to help Jude preserve his place in heaven? Or will the reverend's own demons cause hell to swallow them both? The answer lies in Jude's willingness to follow his own path--even if it leads him far from everything he's known.
This book is like every other Robin Reardon book, you get an entertaining story, but you also get a story that will make you think. And If I Fall is a story about self discovery and making your own path, and in some way, be it big or small, everyone can relate to this story.
Jude is active in his local Church, which has very strong ideas about how a person should act and right and wrong. Can Jude come to terms with things about him that don't measure up to the teachings of the Church?
When someone very influential in his life falls from grace how will Jude deal with it? Will he hide the parts about himself that society says are wrong? Or will he learn that being who you are meant to be, though hard, is so very worth it?
You will fall in love with a few of the supporting characters in this book, and you will cheer Jude on in his path to self discovery for sure! I love this story and you will too!
the 5 Trillium rating!
