Thought Provoking Novel by Angela Hunt

Have you ever read a book that left you thinking about it for days?

Weeks ago I finished the book, “Uncharted,” by Angela Hunt, and I’m still blown away.

Angela weaves the story of five college friends who are brought together again after twenty years when David, the sixth member of their group, suddenly dies.

In honor of their friend, the five agree to travel to the Marshall Islands, halfway between the Philippines and Hawaii, where David had hoped they’d join him in building a Christian school for the children living on a military base there.

Only the group never makes it to their destination. They become stranded on a deserted island where each is forced to face the truth about his/her life.

Publishers Weekly had this to say:

“…A blend of the movies Castaway and The Big Chill, with a touch of the television series Lost, creatively thrown together with the biblical story of the beggar Lazarus and C.S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce.”

The story is full of twists and turns with a big “ah ha” moment at the end. It took me on an entertaining ride that made me look at my own life.

It just doesn’t get any better than that.
