“Once upon a time, I would have said we choose our paths at random: this happened, then that, hence the other. Now I know better. There are forces.”
Revival is an excellent read, a real page turner. It is essentially about the lives of two characters who's lives cross path over and over again. There are a lot of minor characters that play major roles but the majority of the book is about Jamie Morton and Charles Jacob.
Jamie is only six years old when he meets, Charles Jacob. Jacob's is the new minster in town, he has a beautiful wife and young son. They become part of the community rather quickly until a tragic and rather graphic accident takes place irreversibly changing the lives of Jacobs and those with whom he has encounters with. Jamie being the main person of interest in, Jacobs oddly disturbing life.
