The Witnesses, by Robert Whitlow, is a spectacular novel. Whitlow combines the problems of both the young and the old in this book. The intricacies of young love, past choices, new careers, and retired life combine to create an unforgettable story.
Parker House is a young attorney blessed with what he only knows are remarkable instincts. Frank House, his grandfather, knows better. While Parker plunges into courtroom politics, he meets Layla Donovan, a local photographer whose father is a powerful lawyer. Frank tries to avoid memories from World War II, when he was in the German army. As the two worlds collide, that of grandfather and grandson, both have choices to make. Then Frank’s past comes back to haunt him and places him in grave danger.
I enjoyed this book. I was not quite sure how I felt about both Frank and Parker’s gift. Other than that, it was an amazing story. I loved Layla’s strong and independent spirit. I also enjoyed reading about Frank’s new found faith and its development in his life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian courtroom drama.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
