Mackenzie Allen Philips’ youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever.

I have to admit this is not the type of book I usually read, but was glad I did when my aunt recommended it. At first I thought it was a bit far-fetched as I tried to imagine God with the appearance of a big black woman, but the book really makes you think. I related some of the values to my personal life that I been wondering “why did God let this happen?” It book helped me justify some of my own “sadness” and forgive those that caused grief in my life.
