The third book in the Patch Town series is another great read. The author has a wonderful talent to pull the reader right into the story and not let go until the conclusion. All three books touch on a multi-faceted subject---how we all come to encounter certain people and circumstances in our lives and how can they change the direction of our lives. Are we the ones that determine the outcomes of these encounters? Is it all just serendipity or coincidence? Is it God? In the case of the lead character, Martin Gilmore, many people were placed in his life for good reason & by taking a leap of faith, circumstances took him on his journey to excitement, happiness & fulfillment.
