Book of Days by James L. Rubart
Lately Cameron seems to be losing parts of his memory. His wife Jessie has died and the memory of her is slipping away. His father's mind was totally gone when he passed away. Cameron is afraid that the same thing is happening to him.
Before Cameron's father passed away and before Jessie passed away both of them told Cameron about a Book of Days. A book that is supposed to tell all of a person's days, past, present and future. Both Cameron's father and Jessie believed in God. Cameron is skeptical about there being a God and also about the so-called Book of Days.
As Cameron's memory gets worse he decides he must go searching for the Book of Days to hopefully regain his memory. He asks Jessie's best friend Ann to meet him in a small town in Oregon to help him on his quest. Ann agrees because she has a quest of her own, to find out about her mother who abandoned her when she was 11 years old.
Every question asked seems to be met with some form of cover-up. Jason believes in the Book of Days as do his many cult followers. Taylor has more secrets than just the Book of Days. As their missions collide Ann and Cameron decide to help each other find answers to their questions.
I gave this book two hearts because it was so hard for me to get into it. I spent the entire book trying to figure out how many more pages I had to muddle through before I was finished with it. I'm sorry to the author, but this was not a book that caught or kept my attention.
