Season of Waiting by Jim Christopher is a psychological thriller you won’t want to put down. Caleb Allard knows he has little time left and, rather than involving his family in decisions, he arranges his own suicide – medically assisted. He has no real legacy to leave and he will go to his grave haunted by his life choices. Then he hears the voice. A voice that offers him some purpose in life, the one thing Caleb has always wanted. The voice tells him to find a boy in Texas hill country, a boy with abilities beyond belief. When Caleb finds him, he will find his purpose. The journey Caleb must now undertake is painful, physically and emotionally, and he will need to make some tough choices along the way. Every choice has a consequence, not just for Caleb but for his family and for the whole world. Finding one's true purpose in life very often costs more than one can afford to pay and Caleb is about to find that out the hard way.

Season of Waiting by Jim Christopher was an interesting and entertaining read. It is a psychological thriller of sorts but it’s also a journey of discovery. It’s a tough book in terms of emotions but it will hook you right at the beginning. This story will need you to have your wits about you – there are lots of different points of view and the characters are people you will either love or hate. The main protagonist is a man you will come to love and you will have empathy for him – his children, maybe not so much! The one thing you can do with these characters is relate to them in some way. The plot is complex but Jim has weaved a tale worthy of the time it will take you to read it, and you may just end the book feeling like a different person. There are lots of twists and turns, plenty of action, and you won’t know what’s coming next. There are also some different subjects here that the author has dealt with very well, including drugs and the right to die. I hope there is a sequel because this story deserves much more attention. If you love psychological thrillers and want to read something a little bit different in the genre, this is the book for you.
