Well Worth “The Long Journey to Jake Palmer” by James Rubart

About this Book

What if there was a place where everything wrong in your life could be fixed?

Corporate trainer Jake Palmer coaches people to see deeper into themselves—yet he barely knows himself anymore. Recently divorced and weary of the business life, Jake reluctantly agrees to a lake-house vacation with friends, hoping to escape for ten days.

When he arrives, Jake hears the legend of Willow Lake—about a lost corridor that leads to a place where one’s deepest longings will be fulfilled.

Jake scoffs at the idea, but can’t shake a sliver of hope that the corridor is real. And when he meets a man who mutters cryptic speculations about the corridor, Jake is determined to find the path, find himself, and fix his crumbling life.

But the journey will become more treacherous with each step Jake takes.

My Review

I love how James Rubart stretches the imagination and takes his readers to the edge. This story does that in a masterful way.

Jake Palmer is a motivational speaker and recently divorced.  I quickly felt for Jake and his plight. As the story developed and the author reveals more about Jake and his past my compassion and ability to relate to him grew.

The story is very good. (Though, I think I enjoyed The Five Times I Met Myself better.) Rubart takes us into the unseen realm and teaches the reader some important truths.

Rubart enjoys giving readers stories that are, for a lack of a better word “supernatural.” But his stories always have a deep spiritual meaning. It took me awhile to truly understand what the message of this story is. When it hit me it was a “wow” moment. As I understood the message of this story I saw how it applied to me.

I also enjoy who the author pulls tidbits from his other books into his current story.

Rubart fans will not be disappointed with this book. If you have never read James Rubart this is a great one to start with.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I’ve been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It’s been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
