my review bal  Apr 14, 2010
excellent book but not truly believable. It seemed forced at times and the ending is unrealistic.
Reach out, help others and live life while you have it.  Apr 14, 2010
When you lose a child it is considered "the worst loss". For the Nolans the loss of their son doesn't just risk destroying their world, it also risks tearing them apart, as he was the only thing that was keeping them together.

It can take up to two years before parents can even think about getting over the loss of their child. In Jacob's List this is shortened a little for literary license but the very real grief and devastation that these parents felt. A lot of my expectations were blown away by it.

Keep in mind this is a Christian novel. There were a lot of Christian themes and both parents are profoundly affected by a transformation in Christ that is one of the main themes of the book. I appreciated that a lot of the biblical conversion stuff was saved until later in the novel so that you could get wrapped up in the story first. I was irked that it was implied that the only way they could really expect full healing and forgiveness was through Christ, a common Christian theme but I personally am open to other options if it helps people.

I also personally felt that the African American character was painted and wielded very awkwardly by the author. I think the character was depicted in an over the top manner in an attempt to accentuate the novel's racial diversity. This was damaged a bit by the fact that, when it came right down to it, the Christian acquaintance was more of a help in her time of her need than her (non-Christian) friend for life. There were also a few other subtle snubs to this (sexually active in a committed relationship, feminist) "friend" throughout that I didn't really appreciate.

As for the positives, I did think that the depression and suffering experienced by the Nolans was very well drawn and very realistically portrayed. You understood how devastating this loss was for them, and could empathize with their suffering. Even shortened as it was their process of healing was very believable and their quest towards forgiveness was portrayed as realistically difficult and painful to achieve.

Any Christian that has experienced the loss of a loved one would appreciate this book. Those that aren't Christians and have no desire to be will probably find it as patronizing and difficult as the parents initially did. Despite that, Jacob's List teaches that we each should do the things we want to do while we are alive, "live it up" and sky dive, or rock climb, or take that one trip you've always meant to. You never know when a day might turn out to be your last. Reach out, help others and live life while you have it.
Moving and Memorable  Mar 29, 2010
Whitson performs beautifully in JACOB'S LIST, delivering a story of pain and promise, hurt and hope.

After the tragic and sudden death of their son, Jacob, Michael and Pam Nolan, on the brink of divorce, begin a gut-wrenching grief journey that slowly, but surely reawakens their love for one another.

Far from contrived, Whitson's words are realistic and timely. While there are no easy, trite answers given, through interaction with friends and caring neighbors, the Nolans are able to navigate their grief with God at the helm, with all the angst, fear, and doubt that one might expect in such a time of loss.

Masterfully delivered by an author who knows what it is to lose someone you love. -Eileen Rife, author of WHEN MOURNING COMES, LIVING THROUGH LOSS When Mourning Comes: Living Through Loss
Jacob's List will inspire you  Oct 15, 2009
Very good book. It was sad one minute and inspirational the next. It shows how God can use all things to bring people to him and to heal relationships.
Jacob's List ~ Reviewed  Oct 1, 2007

Stephanie Grace Whitson has set a new paradigm for Christian authors with Jacob's List. I don't want to give any of this hard-hitting story away, so this review will be short. But Whitson has delivered a portrayal of emotions so realistic in characters so life-like, I experienced them with Pam and Michael.

But what stayed with me the most was the conversion scene. It was one of the most natural conversions I've read. No manipulation, no voices in the sky, no renewed instant joy, no dramatic anything. Just an honest choice brought about by the circumstances.

How life-like. How believable. And something a non-Christian could perhaps relate to?
This is one book I will give to a friend who is grieving a lost marriage. It's a book of hope. And forgiveness. A book this reviewer gives her highest recommendation.

By the way, you'll love Rambo. Now if I could only get my dog to do the things he does.
