The Final Hour By Andrew Klavan


The Final Hour
By Andrew Klavan

Charlie West is in prison. Scared, alone, betrayed... He struggles for a way to keep his faith strong. Plagued by memory loss and painful bouts of memory return, he struggles to remember the details that landed him in prison. He knows this much: he allowed himself to be framed in order to help take down a terrorist cell.

But he soon finds out that his actions might have been in vain. The terrorists are still out there - plotting to destroy Americans. As Charlie's memories return bit by bit, he realizes that he is the only one who can stop then. And time is running out.

The Final Hour has an excellent message for Christians. Persevering in the face of adversity is ALWAYS the best option, no matter how hard it may be. Doing the right thing is worth it - and possible with God's help.

Do you love words?

If you're a voracious reader, the answer to that question is probably a resounding "yes"!
You're not alone. I, too, love words.
But, sometimes words just don't love me back.
Sometimes, I just cannot think of another word for the word that I want to use.
Sometimes, I would like to know what words rhyme with the word that I am thinking about.
Other times, I would just really like to know if I'm saying the word, that I have only just read, the right way.
