The Journey's End by Victoria Olasegha is an absorbing and inspirational story with strong religious themes and an excellent exploration of family dynamics and the role of faith in times of crisis. Brian is a spoiled kid, living comfortably and having everything he wants. When his father offers him a new plane, he decides it is time to go on a trip to Brazil with his friends. With him are Craig and his new girlfriend, Tess, and Rachel. These teenagers have different gifts and each of them is unique in their backgrounds, personalities, and social dispositions. When a trip that was supposed to take them to Brazil lands them in a mysterious place with ever-changing landscapes and no hope of escape, they begin to rethink their adventure and life. Meanwhile, back home, their parents and loved ones seek answers. Those answers are what make this book an exceptional story.
Victoria Olasegha’s story of faith, love, and hope is one that clearly demonstrates how adversity can help young characters grow and how the experience of loss can also become an instrument for families to strengthen the bonds between each other and with God. The plot is clever and the shifts in scenes carefully crafted to create suspense. One moment the reader is following the young characters navigating an unknown world filled with danger, then the next moment they are with the parents as they ponder the faith of their children and nourish their faith in God. The writing is gorgeous and the short chapters make the reading experience even more satisfying. The character development is impeccable. One of the things readers will adore in The Journey's End is the wisdom contained in the book, the insightful thoughts, and the dialogues characteristic of the drama that punctuates this cleverly plotted story.
