Darkness Follows by Mike Dellosso

Hi Everyone,

Gripping, moving, and fascinating are good words to start to use to describe Darkness Follows. Mike Dellosso created a drama filled book with this one. On the surface Sam Travis is just your average hard working husband with a daughter until his accident. He starts hearing civil war noises, but scarier yet, he is finding writing that he doesn't remember writing! The darkness is taking over him, while his daughter keeps telling him that she loves him, and that Jesus loves him. Eva says a man named Jacob keeps telling her what to tell Sam.

But Sam isn't listening well, he is consumed in trying to figure out what is real and what he is dreaming. He keeps winding up seeing things that aren't there, or are they? What is his connection to the man in the Civil War he is writing about? In the middle of no one believing him much, and saying that he is getting really scary, now people are being murdered. A killer with out all of his faculties is moving on Sam's trail.

Sam has to find God's love, hear his daughter's love for him and that God has for him before everything has gone way too far, and it is way to late to change. A very dramatic read that touches on some major issues.

Sam Travis lives in a Civil War era farmhouse in Gettysburg, PA, where he awakens one morning to find an old journal with an entry by a Union soldier, Lt. Whiting…written in Sam’s own handwriting. When this happens several more times, both at night and during waking “trances,” Sam begins to question his own sanity while becoming obsessed with Lt. Whiting and his bone-chilling journal entries. As the entries begin to mimic Sam’s own life, he is drawn into an evil plot that could cost many lives, including his own.

Can the unconditional love of Sam's daughter, Eva, break through his hardened heart before a killer on the loose catches up with them and Sam’s past spurs him to do the unthinkable?
