Books, so many books! I love to read; how about you? The latest book review is for Cross Claims by Rolly A. Chabot. I have been fortunate enough to become friends with Rolly over the years and to witness his ability to write a novel after novel after… well, you get the point.
I recently reread Cross Claims so that it would be fresh in my mind to write a review of it. The main character is Conner Campbell, who is given the seemingly overwhelming task to mine a claim left for him by his Great Grandfather Jack in his will. One of the issues? Connor has never mined for gold before. Issue number two? The claim is located in far up north in the Yukon.
As Campbell makes the trek up north, he find out much about himself and even acquires a female admirer, named Katherine. He has his work cut out for him, and there are many interesting characters, not all of whom have good intentions, whom he meets along the way.
I liked Cross Claims for many reasons. I enjoyed that it had a faith-based focus in it. Connor is a spiritual man who prays to find out what to do about the claim, his relationship with Katherine and other life-changing decisions. Also, author Rolly Chabot has a writing style that is easy to follow from page to page. While the book is nearly 300 pages, it does not feel as though it long and I found myself drawn to the laid-back flow of the story.
Author Rolly Chabot has several books that you read, in addition to Cross Claims. You can find the entire list on his Amazon page. Cross Claims, first published in 2013, has four reviews on Amazon that are all five stars (I will add mine there today). I look forward to reading more of his books and hear he has recently started writing a new one too. How exciting!
If you enjoy Rolly Chabot’s books about faith and hope too or want to help the author, please share this post. I know he will appreciate it, and I do too! Pick up Cross Claims at Amazon if you enjoy the premise of this story.
I hope you all have a wonderful day~ xo Christy
