Review of ‘Amberlin: Divine Destiny’

Posted on Updated on

It’s tough being special; especially when you have no idea how or why you’re special. Amberlin Gentry lives with her grandfather in a fundamentalist, and quite offbeat, religious community, where conformity is not only desired, it’s enforced. Her grandfather has vowed to protect her, and not make the same mistakes he made with her mother. But, the leaders of the Golden Acres of Christ Community are prepared to go to great lengths to suppress Amberlin’s gifts.

As Amberlin grows, she begins to question everything around her. Troubled by dreams of a beautiful woman, she begins to rebel—drawing the ire of Reverend Stover and his wife Missy. The arrival of a new nurse to work in a mental institution with strange ties to Golden Acres starts to shift the balance.

Amberlin: Divine Destiny by W. Bradford Swift tells the story of Amberlin’s coming of age in a way that will appeal to young and old readers alike. A paranormal mystery that delves into normal—but dysfunctional—relationships, this one will keep you awake at night.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review. I give it five stars.

        HARD TO SAY…I’ve been told that my book actually has a genre, the same on ‘The Cather In The Rye’ is in… Though I consider my book too humorous for that genre, I would be hard pressed to pick a genre for it myself. It’s called ‘Dear Johnny’ by Nazareth Bergeron, and starts off all innocent like, but then takes a tailspin into oblivion.

    Do you have a .mobi or .pdf file. I’d be happy to take a look at it – although, my review queue is quite full now, and I couldn’t promise to get to it soon.
