9780785269779: Be Not Afraid: A Novel

Seventy-eight-year-old Mary Oliver begins to clean out the garage after her husband's death. As she sorts through piles of junk with her daughter, she discovers a stack of old letters, neatly tied with a ribbon. The letters rekindle memories of her first love, the man she always presumed had died in Europe during World War II. As the story unfolds, Mary discovers that this man she loved so long ago is still alive. The narrative interweaves the present and the past, his story and hers, the saga of their separate families, and the gentle ways God has watched over them through the years. Be Not Afraid explores the quiet corners of the human heart while telling tales of courage and sacrifice. Can love survive after such a long separation?

About the Author:

Author of twenty-six published books, Robert L. Wise, Ph.D., also writes for numerous magazines and journals, including Christianity Today, Leadership, and The Christian Herald. He is a bishop in the communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches. He collaborated on the national bestselling Millennium series, which includes The Third Millennium, The Fourth Millennium, and Beyond the Millennium, and is the author of Be Not Afraid and Spiritual Abundance.

From Publishers Weekly:

Retired pastor Wise sets his seventh novel in contemporary America with frequent flashbacks to the European front of WWII. This tale of love, fate and adversity will likely find an audience among members of the "greatest generation," who have shared some of the protagonists' experiences and values. Unfortunately, its slow pace, stilted dialogue, descriptive inconsistencies and lack of narrative tension will not attract younger readers. As the novel begins, elderly Mary McCoy, still coming to terms with her husband's death, discovers old letters from her first love, Robert Walker, who had disappeared during the Battle of the Bulge. Her rekindled interest in Robert's fate leads her to locate him, and she comes to his hospital bedside, where he is recovering from heart surgery. There, Robert recounts his brutal experiences as a POW and explains the mystery of why he never returned to Mary. Wise is deeply respectful, even obsequious, toward his main characters and their generation; when Mary's daughter discovers her mother's yearbooks, she notes with envy that "goodness and dignity oozed out of the pictures." More vigorous editing would have improved the story. When Robert reaches a dark moment, for instance, the narrative claims that he "buried his face in his hands and stared at the blanket." Apart from sloppy prose, the novel might have benefited from stronger engagement with religion. Faith steps in only occasionally as a source of vague comfort for the characters. For one brief paragraph, we find Robert engaged in serious soul-searchingDbut this fleeting moment only serves to illustrate the shallow romanticism of the novel as a whole. (Jan.)
