From Patrick’s website: Caroline is at a crossroads.
Her grandmother is sick, maybe dying. Like the rest of her family, Caroline’s been bedside since Gram’s stroke. With the pressure building, all Caroline wants to do is escape—both her family and the reality of Gram’s failing health. So when Caroline’s best friend offers to take her to a party one fateful Friday night, she must choose: Stay by Gram’s side for what might be her final hours, or Go to the party and live her life.
The consequences of this one decision will split Caroline’s fate into two separate paths— and she is about to live them both.
I really liked the way this book was written. The two authors take the same scenario but write out two different consequences of two different choices: stay or go. The book made me think about some of my own life choices and how things would be different for me. Would I have still met my husband? Had our son? Been called into the ministry? We make choices everyday but rarely do we think about the consequences of our decisions.
What did this book have to do with my faith? Would my decisions in my past changed my life of faith? If I had decided on a different job or gone to a different college, would God still have called me into full time service? Would my life look similar to what it does now? What kind of person would I have become? Do I really pay attention to the decisions – big and small – that I make on a daily basis? Does it matter in God’s eyes which paths I chose? In other words, will all paths eventually lead me to God? What life decisions do you question in your own journey?
I recommend Just Like Fate.
