Treasure In You
Ellipsis by Gina Rincavage is a contemporary Christian novel which is jaw droppingly beautiful and very poignant. My soul was soothed by this incredibly powerful story.
God delights to answer prayer. This is clearly seen within the novel. As in life, we can often only see God’s hand in our situations when we look back. God sees, hears and answers all our prayers in His perfect timing.
How well do you know Jesus? Would you recognise Him if He walked beside you? Would yours be an Emmaus or a Damascus road experience? The novel explores these questions.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Within the story the reader can clearly see Biblical parallels.
There is the theme of searching. Sometimes the very thing we are searching for was under our noses the whole time.
Much of the novel is set in Israel. The reader experiences the sights and sounds of this wonderful but often troubled land.
Written in the first person for the majority of the novel, the reader finds it easy to place themselves within the story. We experience the action through the eyes of the main character.
Ellipsis is a work of great beauty. It needs to be read at least twice. As the tale unravels and the ending is revealed, it was as if scales fell from my eyes. I want to reread Ellipsis now that I know the ending. I believe I will gain even more from subsequent readings than I did on the first. Do not be tempted to skip to the end as you need the earlier action to make sense of it.
Ellipsis is a work with Jesus at the heart. It is soothing to the soul and calming to the spirit. It is a novel that cries out to be read.
My eyes are opened. My heart is full.
Totally, totally heart wrenchingly beautiful.
