Summary (from Goodreads): What ties us down, holds us back, keeps us prisoners in our own lives? Michael, Ken, Jennifer, and Joe find their lives intricately entwined as they search for answers. All-too human, they falter, fall back, and then find the key. Auto mechanic, bank robber, knockout model, and popular priest-all so different, yet each comes to the same conclusion: Forgiveness is the path to joy in this life, salvation in the next, and love with God everlasting. Sharon Gricol expertly weaves a tapestry of Everyman's quest, filling the pages with richly patterned, true-to-life characters and a message for all time.
Life’s Captivity is inspirational and encouraging. The writing is lyric and rhythmic, and the pacing is relaxed enough to be calm, but fast enough to keep you interested. It is very comforting and uplifting, and a beautiful picture of how Christ works in our lives to make us more beautiful, to bring the lost to Him, and to glorify Himself.
Content: There was some language in certain parts of the book, because of the character who was speaking. I found it appropriate for the situation.
Recommendation: Ages 14+
