"There's a set time, a season, for everything under the heavens," Tobiel said. "You can ask God to do something numerous times. Get others to ask for you. And He still will not move until the set time, when everything is beautiful. Including you." --from IF I COULD DIE
John "Dusty" Wilson's life is falling apart. His wife Lisa has left him, and he's having a hard time convincing her to come back home. When his alcoholic uncle's health fails and he's faced with more difficulties, Dusty wonders if God is the refuge that he needs or the source of his pain.
Helping him figure it out is his best friend Brooklyn, who is back in Cedar, Alabama after seven years of living in Chicago, the city where her mother was killed when she was a young girl. Recovering from a failed relationship, Brooklyn settles back into her childhood surroundings, a place where her faith and sexuality simply do not mix. When her ex begins to woo her back--to her and Chicago--Brooklyn must determine which path will lead her to the peace she is searching for.
Angels go unseen all around them--protecting and guiding them--and above them Tobiel, an angel of God, has been given orders by The King to bring John Home, and will do whatever it takes to guide him there safely.
IF I COULD DIE stands out among its peers--a literary, spiritual novel for our times, with Biblical easter egg characters and a story that reminds us that no matter how different, we're all on the same path Home.
