The Tallest Watchtower
I found that this is a good (but very short) book to read, it only took me about 10 minutes to finish it, it is a great read. I adored the first story, and the second one was enlightening.
I have to say though i liked the stories, i think that maybe there could've been a few more stories in this book to help it be complete, but otherwise it was ok, so out of 5 stars I am rating it as a 4 cause i did like it but it was short.
Some info on the books from my words...
There is 2 short stories. The first is titles, Lucy. It is about a couple who can not have children of their own. They decide they want to adopt a young boy. They arrive and actually pick a 3 year girl (for a very special reason, that i won't spoil in here). The ending is slightly sad but kind of happy in a way too.
The second short story tells of the 9-11 disaster. It talks of a man, who was getting ignored by pretty much everyone. It also tells of how more than 3,000 people died, (that is all i will say there cause any more could spoil the ending and everything)
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
The human heart is taken over by these very impressive short stories. The Tallest Watchtower is a wakeup call for our sleeping sense of empathy and charity and a reminder not to forget those who are not among us but between us and our God. Their memory is always respected. Containing stories of first loves, new loves, and the horrific events of September 11, 2011, this collection is sure to bring a reaction.
