All That Remains by Hannah Holborn

The main characters in the book are a young boy that was abducted by a schizophrenic man who believes he is saving his dead brother, a stressed out cop with major family problems that is trying to locate the boy, and a woman on the run from the law, due to a felony warrant, that manages to become a hero.

The story is sad at times and will leave you despairing humanity.  However, the triumphant ending will most certainly lift your spirt.  The book is engaging and an excellent read.

 

Abiding Darkness by John Aubrey Anderson

This story takes place in Mississippi during the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.  The main character is a young girl named Missy, who is consistently in danger from demonic forces that wish to kill her.  Missy relies on the power of God and her guardian angel to defeat the evil that surrounds her.

I thought the book was okay.  There are several scenarios that are a bit silly.  Also, the characters seemed flat or one dimensional, which made it difficult to relate with them.
