Day #3 of the Spirit Well CSFF Blog Tour
The past and the present are our means; the future alone is our end .
~ Blaise Pascal
Stephen R Lawhead continues with The Spirit Well.
The Bone House left us with Kit having discovered what he believes to be the Spirit Well, a conclusion he came to after observing Arthur Flinders-Petrie enter a deep water filled environment with a dead woman who is restored to life.
Mina, after being warned by Haven of Burleigh's suspicions, has left Prague in the hopes of somehow locating Kit. When she can find no sign of him, Mina goes to Spain in the hopes that Brother Lazarus can help her in her quest.
Meanwhile we are introduced to Cassandra Clarke who, while on a dig in Arizona, discovers by accident the Ghost Walk. But when she determines to study this phenomenon she jumps to other places and becomes lost to her time and place, ending up in 1950s Damascus. There she finds the Zetetic Society who are seeking to achieve God's purpose for His creation - unity and harmony as the Creator intended and to be fully realised at "the end of time and the beginning of eternity.
In the Spirit Well we discover the circumstances that resulted in the creation of the Skin Map and its separation as well as Burleigh's discovery of the ley lines.
The Zetetic Society is searching for Sir Henry, Cosimo, and Kit. The three have disappeared as has Sir Henry's portion of the map. The society feels that discovering them is of the highest priority and assign this task to Cassandra.
Treachery and betrayals abound as many search for the greatest discovery of Arthur Flinders-Petrie. A discovery that Kit has discovered, but can he find his way back?
As is often mentioned by various characters throughout the series There are no coincidences. There is a purpose behind everything that happens in our lives though we may not be able to ascertain it at the time.
The Spirit Well is filled with trips that span the centuries and the globe will leave you anticipating what will come next in The Shadow Lamp book 4. Unfortunately we will have to wait until September 2013 to continue our journey along the lines.
Get ready to go on an adventure that will test your ability to adapt and prepare to grow your mind! The unknown is greater than you ever imagined!
In conjunction with the CSSF blog tour, I received a copy of this book from the publisher for this review.
