Faith Seekers by Sherry Rossman ★★★☆☆

cover58918-mediumWhen Hannah’s family loses their home, she drops out of college and joins them as they take their RV on a journey through fractured America. Struggling with her loss of identity, she attempts to embrace her new life as a nomad until a California campground unveils a nightmare that only she can see. She questions her sanity as her family continues on their journey, and her unearthly visions increase.

Miguel, a young photographer traveling with his uncle, helps Hannah discover her true identity and the roles they will all play in unveiling the truth about the ever-present good and evil surrounding them. Join Hannah and Miguel as they try to piece together their broken hopes and dreams amidst looming darkness. Will Hannah find her faith, embrace the light, and trust in the God that she thought had abandoned her?

As my followers may know, Christian Fiction is not one of my go to genres. But, I so thoroughly enjoyed Daisies are Forever, that I thought I would give it another go with my most recent request from NetGalley.

Sadly, Faith Seekers did not keep my interest. Outside of my running tally of missing quotation marks and spelling/grammatical errors, I felt that the characters were flat and generally underdeveloped. I don’t know Hannah’s last name. I’m not sure that would have helped my case, but I also feel like it’s something fundamentally missing. As the story progressed, I still was not feeling grounded. Honestly, I feel like I started the the second book of a series. I feel like I missed an entire book’s worth of information.

Faith Seekers begins right at the beginning of Hannah’s problem, which left me a little lost. I knew so little about her that I was not inclined to care that she was hallucinating and scared. Her hallucinations had the potential to keep my interest but, quite frankly, it was too much too soon. As I said, I just didn’t have enough information to keep me going.

I received my copy for free as a reviewer for NetGalley.com.

Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
