James Rubart has done it again. The Chair is a magnificient creation, a definite “edge of my seat” (pun intended) read. Unpredictable up to the very end, this book deserves a very strong 5 star rating.
Corin Roscoe thinks the old lady who dropped off an even older chair at his antique shop is nuts. Though he tries to refuse the chair, she insists he take it–claiming that it was meant to go to him.
Taking a closer look after she leaves, he realizes the chair is very well made in it’s simplicity. Putting it off to the side, since he has an overabundance of furniture in his store right now, he figures it’s something he might take a look at later, if he has the time.
When a young boy is miraculously healed in his store after sitting in the chair, and word of it spreads, Corin realizes that maybe he has come across something special. Could this chair possibly heal his brother–and his guilt?
When a well known mega-church pastor begins to manipulate Corin into selling the chair, he decides to lock it up for safekeeping. Corrin, needing advice, confides in an old trusted friend, a college professor, who shares with him the history and legend behind the mysterious chair.
Does the chair really posses power? There are those who will stop at nothing to get it–and that puts Corin, and those he loves at the center of their cross-hairs.
I received this book from the publisher through Netgalley. All opinions rendered are my own.
