Told from multiple perspectives and laced with startling twists, Dogwood by acclaimed author Chris Fabry is an emotionally rich tale of suffering, sacrificial love, and redemption. A single visit to a West Virginia prison can't resolve the tragic pasts of convicted child-killer Will Hatfield and his former sweetheart Karin. While she struggles with haunting regrets, Will vows to wait for her, no matter how long it takes.
- Too much story and very little faith.
As a family we loved the contributions of Chris Fabry to 'Adventures in Odyssey' - especially the way he wove faith and great stories. So we came to this novel with expectation of the same. Sadly, although the story line is quite good, there is little to encourage faith. We found the chapter where Will goes to the concert quite disconcerting, unwholesome. Indeed we stopped listening to the story at this point - which was well over 1/2 way through the book - because Fabry seemed to have crossed the line. Sadly we cannot recommend this book for anyone who wants their faith to be strengthened.
