The Rescue by Jim Cymbala: A Book Review
Lawrence. Timiney. Rich. Robin. Kaitlyn. Alex. Toni.
These are the seven people that you will meet in the book The Rescuer by Jim Cymbala. I have not previously read anything by this author, but if this book is any example of his work, I might just find something else of his to read!
In, The Rescuer, Jim Cymbala tells us the first person stories of these seven individuals. These are ordinary people with ordinary lives, who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances, whether at their own hand, or at the hand of another. They dealt with things like disease, addiction, alcoholism, the victim of rape and sexual abuse among others.
And all of these people have something else in common other than their troubles; they needed help, and they needed it now. Desperate people, desperate for a Rescuer.
Robin is the granddaughter of Jewish emigres who now live in Brooklyn, NY. Although her father was never really in her life, her grandfather raised her until her mother remarried. While Robin was in high school she started experimenting with alcohol and drugs; that behavior continued in college, and then one day her parents called telling her that her grandmother had a heart attack and she needed to come home right away... I don't want to say much else because I don't want to ruin the rest of her story.
Toni's story will break your heart. But I promise you'll want to see how it turns out. If you've ever struggled with heartbreak, addiction, sexual abuse, illness, this book will encourage you and inspire you to hang in there until Your Rescuer comes through for you.
