Fabry never fails to give readers a story that will be enjoyable with flawed characters that readers are easily able to bond with.
Gideon Quidley has achieved great wealth throughout his life and when he receives a divine vision telling him to hide his treasure based on bible verses, he sets out to do just that. When people find out what he has done, treasure hunters search high and low based on the clues. It becomes an obsession for some people. For others, it’s become more of a joking matter. In the small town of Emmaus, West Virginia, mooring radio talk show hosts Waite Evers and TD Lovett, tend to joke about the matter weekly. But when one of TD’s estranged friends goes missing, he is suddenly pulled into the hunt for his friend over the treasure. As TD dives into the clues, he begins to discover his own real treasure that isn’t just of this earth.
Leave it to Chris Fabry to set up an incredibly interesting tale that takes readers back to 1981. I’ve never been disappointed in one of Fabry’s novels and this one kept me intrigued all the way through. His characters are all incredibly flawed, just like real life, and have the ability to easily connect with readers. Waite was just one of many, but he saw the good in everybody but himself. TD felt he could never be more than he was and didn’t know what the point of trying was. With plenty of supporting characters, readers will easily find someone to resonate with and cheer for throughout the book. Fabry’s years of experience on the radio show with the technical knowledge included in this book!
The story centers around an earthly treasure of riches, but has a theme of discovering the treasure of ourselves with our heavenly father. I love the way that this book ended. I’m not going to say more than that, but I think all readers will enjoy the final wrap up!
