The Artist And Builder Of Our Lives
The novel is set in small town America and has a wonderful warm feel to it that envelopes the reader. Life is not always perfect but people pull together with words of wisdom and offers of hospitality.
There are motifs for our lives of building houses and paintings. God is the master builder. The reader is reminded that unless we build our lives on the sure foundation of His word, our lives will be built on shifting sand. Likewise, God is the artist of all our lives. Sometimes we try to ‘fake it’, but God sees the original us.
All the characters are wonderfully drawn and exude warmth. They are realistic too, having less than perfect tempers.
