Review from OnlineBookClub.org
The book was entertaining to read. From the prologue on, it captured my interest and held it for the duration of the novel. I think this book contains a secret lesson as well. It made me think about all the things that I not only overlook but also fail to express my gratitude for. I like how many emotions this book evoked in me because it indicates to me that these are feelings I had on a deep level. The character development was fascinating, and the dialogue was natural. It is also obvious that this book has undergone a comprehensive review process. I couldn’t see a single error while reading.
There are no heroes or villains in the story that the author has skillfully crafted. He created characters whose lives were guided by their passions and ambitions. Hiram McDowell, the main character, lived a life defined by the mountains he had to climb, the valleys he had to traverse, and the challenges he had to face to achieve self-actualization. However, this led him to a belated realization that he was an abject failure as a physician and a father. He was a good man in McDowell’s eyes. Only Paige Sterling, a driven journalist nearing the end of her career, was able to recognize McDowell for who he truly was.
I would rate McDowell as a 5 out of 5 since it is such an amazing book to read and one that I found difficult to put down for very long. I needed to know what would happen next
