Added to the Pile + 43

Just one book this week. My head might explode if it were any more. I won a contest over at Bewitched Bookworms and I got The Second Cycle by Alan Richards. Thanks, guys!


What is life's most important truth?

That question is the subject of
The Second Cycle, a thoroughly entertaining yet thought-provoking story that examines the disconnect between belief and truth.

Kira Blakely receives a letter about a problem with her scholarship. The letter leads to the discovery of a shocking truth about her past. Julia Edwards goes abroad to school to learn more about her Christian religion. She returns home, having lost her faith in God. Daniel Aiello makes a miraculous recovery after doctors pronounce him dead. Now, every year on the anniversary of his healing, God speaks to him and reveals truths that contradict teachings of all existing religions. Peter Grayson is involved in a medical research project that seeks to solve the mystery of human memory. What he uncovers challenges the idea that death brings an end to life.

These characters are connected by their need to find new truths about beliefs that were destroyed. Their research will bring them closer to the discovery of life's most important truth.
