True purposes can be easily unlocked when seen, but greater are those who find their purpose through faith in the unseen!
All her life Maxine has been curious as to what was always hidden away in her grandmother’s armoire. She was always told it was for her when she would be ready. After her grandmother passes away, she receives the armoire, but no key. After a frantic search, she finally locates the key and opens the doors to discover a single beautiful feather. Bewildered, she touches the feather only to come face to face with an angel named Abia. Abia has been instructed to show Maxine several scenes that will help her understand her true potential. Maxine is then whisked from scene to scene to witness heartbreaks, sadness, happiness, true joy, and unspeakable devastation. These scenes are provided as a gift that shapes the remainder of Maxine’s life on this earth.
This was a fantastic book that easily fits in with Christian end times fiction, but not in the Left Behind sense. This gives the main character, Maxine, an understanding of who she is meant to be, the purpose she was made for. And when she tries to use the “after college” approach, it is said that Jesus will be coming back soon and there is no time to waste. The bulk of the book is about Maxine’s life and how all the scenes that she witnessed with Abia become encounters in her own life. She meets these people after these events have happened and understands what happened so that she can help them. Even so, she still faces great tragedy and personal losses and tries to cope with them as best she can understand.
