Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading where you grab your current read, flip to a random page, and share 2 teaser sentences from that page!

Sounds great right?! :) 

My teasers are going to be from Gathering Sticks Along the Way by Tyler Mills!

When God commanded Abraham to carry Isaac up the mountain, the boy was told by his father to gather sticks to build an altar. With each piece he gathered he unknowingly contributed to his own sacrifice. But before the blade would fall an angel of God would appear. The entire parable hinged on Abraham's faith in God's plan and his determination to carry it out with his own hands.

Charles is an average man. He has a loving family and is solid in his own beliefs. But his faith is soon tested with the loss of his son and Charles becomes a man driven by the need for answers. He needs to know what happened to his child and is prepared to do anything to find out. As simple actions by multiple individuals begin to unfold, a tragedy is formed and Charles is caught in the middle. Throughout it all he knows he is not alone. He knows God is with him. As Charles begins to see signs of what he believes to be the truth behind his son's disappearance, he's unsure if these come from God or if they are just coincidences. Is it his vengeance that propels him or is he just doing God's plan? His faith will either see him through this catastrophe or cause him to lose all he has left.

 I flipped to chapter 18 on my Kindle so I don't know exactly what's going on in the story right now but these sentences popped out at me: 

"He had created an entire blueprint of attack."

"He had tediously studied each step of his grizzly pan until it was complete, save for one major factor: time." 

I should finish up Gather Stick Along the Way today so look for my review to be up soon! If you just can't wait then look for the book from Amazon here!
