The Restorer on the ACFW Book Club

Captain's Log, Supplemental

Do any of you belong to the ACFW Book Club? For the month of October, they'll be featuring Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and they're voting right now.

While most of the books are true Sci-Fi/Fantasy, one is not targeted at your typical SFF reader--The Restorer by Sharon Hinck. I wrote a review here, and it's a book specifically for women readers, dealing with women's issues. I mean, how can you go wrong with a soccer mom heroine?

Here's a blurb: Susan Mitchell needed a change--any kind of change. Nearly twenty years of marriage to her college sweetheart, Mark, had given her two teenagers and two grade-schoolers, along with miles of unmatched socks, sticky countertops, and the ever-growing hum of sheer bedlam. When had she become so . . . insignificant? Hadn't God once had a plan for her?

Well, at least Mark had a plan: for an attic hideaway free of iPods and science projects and cookie crumbs. But before Susan can finish her first journal entry, she finds herself pulled through a portal into a world grappling for its soul and waiting for a promised Restorer.

Someone does have a plan for her--one she never would have imagined.

While she struggles to adapt to a foreign culture full of unfamiliar technologies and taboos, she faces unexpected battles, mind-poisoning enemies, and a profound spiritual journey. Her adventure will forever change her family, her faith, and how she experiences love--from the One.
