The Gate by Dann A. Stouten--If you like the Shack, you'll like this!

Cover Art  This is an encouraging, eye-opening story!  Schuyler Hunt decides to check out a vacation cottage he saw advertised while his wife and daughters go on a shopping trip.  The place feels strangely familiar and he discovers that he's found a little piece of heaven.  Through the owners and some visitors from his past, he'll reflect on where he's been and learn some life lessons for the journey ahead.

This is an interesting story about a Christian man who thinks he has it all together, but finds that he may not have it all figured out.  I liked meeting the different people from his past and learning along with him the important lessons they had to teach.  Different memories he reflected on added layers to his story and some were very touching.  Both the author and Schuyler had careers in the auto industry, so there's a bit of car love in the story, which gave it a unique touch.  This book made me reflect on my own journey and I plan to take his lessons to heart.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available April 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
