Book Tour: Almost Heaven

I am thrilled to be able to participate in the book tour of Almost Heaven by Chris Fabry. I love music, and this book, while fictional, is based on the real life of Billy Allman. Maybe it's because I am from the South, but I love books set in this area. Allman lived his life in the hills of West Virginia, and Fabry truly captures the essence of the hills and hollers, and the bluegrass that reigns in these areas. The book was excellent, and I could not put it down. Billy has an angel, Malachi who is sent to watch after him. On the back of the book, in the description, it says, "each step Billy takes is a note added to a beautiful song that will forever change the lives of those who hear it". Does that not apply to us all! How exciting, and I don't think there is anything more powerful I can say than that to compel you to read this book!

Book Description:
Billy Allman barely survived the flash flood that swept through his holler, taking many a life. Truth be told, it took his daddy's life, too. Daddy's body kept living after the flood, but his mind never left the waters that snatched two little girls from his arms and held them until they were in the loving arms of Jesus.

The only thing Billy saved was his daddy's mandolin and it is his ability to make that instrument sing that God allows to bring about Billy's destruction...and his ultimate redemption.

I have also read his book Dogwood, and it was also really good.
