Read full description of the books The Cure:
Author Athol Dickson won a much coveted award for his 2006 release River Rising. Being aware of this it was with much anticipation that I awaited for his next release, The Cure.
Riley Keep is washed up. Once a successful husband, father, teacher, pastor and missionary he's made a mess of his life in each of those areas. As the story begins Riley is homeless and an alcoholic surviving on the streets in Florida. But word has come around that there's hope in Maine. A cure for alcoholism. Riley and his friend, also an alcoholic, head out for Maine in hopes of finding there salvation from the demon spirits.
As word has travels the local shelter and, indeed the whole town, are overrun with the homeless who seek shelter and hope. Along the way Riley Keep might just make a turn for the better in his spiraling downward life.
When folks speak of the works of Athol Dickson you're bound to hear words like "profound" and I couldn't agree more. Athol has a way of taking the most fallen of characters, making us care about them and follow them on their journey to redemption.
Here in The Cure, as always, the characters are vibrant and real. Flawed and yet courageous. And this author's prose sings without being overwhelmingly poetic. This is one of those rare stories and rare authors. Athol and his stories are able to touch you deeply with a message of hope in Christ in a way that few can.
Highly recommended! One of my Top 10 Novels of 2007.
Read information about the authorAthol Dickson's parents were living on the road when he was born. His first bed was a drawer lined with towels in a travel trailer. He has loved road trips ever since. Boating is a passion, too. Athol owns three boats, and once lived aboard a yacht full-time while cruising the Gulf of Mexico and the USA's Atlantic coast. But Athol's nine novels are proof he can sit still and write if he's with his wife of nearly 30 years, The Lovely Sue. They live in Southern California, where Athol is at work on novel number ten, the second in a series call "The Malcolm Cutter Memoirs" about a multi-millionaire chauffeur who would rather solve mysteries for his clients than hang out on his yacht. What bliss: a novel that combines boats and road trips!
