I have another book review to share with you. I recently finished reading Passing Strangers by Angela Hunt. This story explores the lives of three strangers and how they meet, on a train, and come to care for each other. It is a new twist on train travel and the rewards that can be reaped when you look up from your reading material and get to know your travel companions.
In this tale, a 97 Silver Meteor becomes the temporary home to Andie Crystal, a lonely young woman hiding from her youth as a reality TV star; Matthew Scofield, a widower trying to balance his career and his responsibilities for his two young children; and Janette Turlington, a middle-aged mother running from a troubled home and marriage. The trio are on a ten day Amtrak train tour of the Southern seaboard and form a makeshift family. The journey leads them to heal their wounded hearts and to form friendships they would have never considered.
So, what did I think?
Passing Strangers is a deeply moving story. During the ten day train tour, Andie, Janette, and Matt get to know each other and the story of their journey to friendship is uplifting. Despite being at different ages and stages of their lives, and having so much to deal with on their own, each character realizes that they are not the only ones with burdens and that we are not meant to carry our burdens alone.
The story contains very few slang terms, no violence, and no sexual innuendo. It does, however, explore emotional and physical abuse and mental health issues, so may not be appropriate for younger readers. The end does have discussion questions, making it a great selection for a book club.
I would recommend Passing Strangers to anyone wanting an inspirational contemporary Christian fiction involving relationships.
Passing Strangers is available on Amazon or www.barnesandnoble.com.
