The Choir Director 2: Runaway Bride (Grand Central Publishing, $25.00), Carl Weber’s highly-anticipated sequel to his well-received book The Choir Director, does not disappoint when it comes to delivering a taut, exciting and rich story that pulsates with action. Picking up where the first volume left off, the sequel focuses on choir director Aaron Mackie’s planned wedding to Tia Gregory, the church’s secretary.
As with all of Weber’s books, the plot thickens very quickly and what follows is a high octane ride of betrayal, compromise, questionable conduct and criminal behavior sprinkled with minimal biblical lessons. While the story rushes along at a breathtaking pace, however, there are certain profoundly troubling elements to The Choir Director 2 such as salty language.
Nevertheless, the storyline for The Choir Director 2 entertains with its engaging mixture of guile, deception, envy, jealousy, revenge and ego running amok and the dangers that people can expose themselves to unless they wholeheartedly embrace the principles that they claim are fundamental to their lives. In many respects, some of the serious events which occur in The Choir Director 2, could happen to anyone. The tale is woven together expertly illustrating pain and unresolved trauma, amidst a story of romance, juxtaposed between the natural tendency to succumb to inner desires and the battle of wills that often ensues as a result.
The Choir Director 2 will inspire soul-searching, personal reflections, burning questions and the desire to seriously examine what truly drives each person in working towards achieving life’s goals. –OnPointPress.net.
