Still Life: Book Review

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

*This is the part where I tell you I received this book  in exchange for doing a review.

First of all, I love the cover. I chose to review “Still Life” by Christa Parrish because one of the characters is a photographer – a very famous, Pulitzer prize winning photographer.

The story begins with the photographer, Julian, trying to get home to see his wife, Ada, on her birthday. He gets bumped from his flight. Another passenger, Katherine, gives up her seat so she can spend one more day with a man other than her husband. Unfortunately, the plane crashes and Julian is killed. Katherine is given another chance to make her marriage work, although it will take a lot of work.

The main theme seems to be trying to understand why God chooses to call some people back home sooner than others. Several of the characters really struggled with understanding this problem and also survivor’s guilt. It was interesting to see how the character’s dealt with grief and guilt. The answer may be that we won’t find the answer in this life.

I did enjoy reading this book. It was well-written and thought provoking.
