Every Waking Moment

by Chris Fabry
Tyndale Publishers

Treha Langsam is a young woman with a past she cannot remember, and a future looming with uncertainty. Borrowing the stories of others because she cannot remember her childhood, she has no one to fill in the empty spaces of her life. Living alone and barely making ends meet, she struggles on a daily basis to be a part of a world she cannot understand.

The only thing that makes her somewhat a part of normal society is the fact that she can bring the elderly from the world of their minds to return to some clarity and clear thinking. But there are some people who do  not understand Treha's gift and will do everything in their power to make her just go away. When one of the residents of Desert Gardens Retirement Home in Arizona provides a vital clue to the past, will one of Treha's few friends, Miriam, be able to help her find her family? Or will the truth die along with the same man who is the answer with what is physically wrong with Treha?  

And finally a heroine that isn't stick skinny perfect, with the most beautiful eyes you've ever seen, or some other such flawless or stunning characteristic. Treha is real in the pages of this book, for Fabry has made a fictional someone we can believe in, cheer on, and can almost believe that she is as alive as we are. This is the kind of book that reminds you of the best movie you've ever seen, except so much better. It doesn't matter who you are or where you are in life; Treha's story will change how you see the elderly, the "not quite right" from society, and those who we tend to think are beneath us based on appearance. This novel will open your eyes to things you have never seen before, and make you see in a whole new light.
