The Face of the Earth Reviews
This book immediately grabs you. I was reading feverishly right away, trying to find out what happened to Jill. I found myself thinking backwards like Mitchell, wondering what on earth could have happened to Jill. Did she leave because of something he did? Did somebody hurt her? Did she get in an accident? I think this was excellent writing by Raney, especially because I didn't even realize until now that she had done so.
I also found that this book lit a fire under me. I have always said to my h ...more
Every time I hear about a missing person my thoughts go to those who love that person. It must be so very hard to wait for closure--either good or bad. This book is about the people who love a wife, mother, and friend who disappears off the face of the earth. It was a very compelling read and I could hardly put it down. How sweet was the reminder, though, that we do not go through these tough times alone, but that our Lord is with us through it all.
It was an interesting read, try it
Nice story, well written, I liked the characters, they were very relatable. Try it out, it's a good book to spend time on.
Another wonderful book by one of Christian fiction's finest writers. Bravo Deb.
This is a brave author. She is able to present characters who deal with circumstances which are very real and challenging. Her ability to portray the gamut of human strengths and weaknesses, failures and victories is incredible.

I love books that make me think. This is the type of novels that leaves you pondering things even after you finish the last page. I really liked how the story ended because it brought closure to everything. I also appreciated the realistic struggles that the hero and heroine had. This author does a good job with stirring emotion in the reader and making hearts ache as well as rejoice. There were just enough "we think we've found out what happened" scenarios to make it seem suspenseful, ...more
Amazing, enjoyable experience in reading this book.
Because it captured my attention. I stayed up one night due to me not being able to put it down. I couldn't wait for the ending. In away I knew that she had died but how was my thinking? I too wanted some closure
When I call this the "perfect" book, I am not joking. This is a book that kept my entire attention from the very beginning until the end, and not many books can do that. This has something in it for everyone: mystery, romance, contemporary concerns, and true faith. This is a book that is clean and well-written.
In light of current media stories where people go missing far too often, this was a smart topic to cover in this book. The author kept me guessing almost until the very end. At one point, ...more
