The Reason By William Sirls - Book Review

Overview:

The Reason by William Sirls is a novel about faith and believing in a higher power, for me this would be God. Sirls captures something personal about every character in ‘The Reason’; he does not miss a beat. Very well written novel Mr. Sirls, full of inspiration, love and hope for all who read your book.

A small community comes together when
lightning struck the cross at their church and destroyed it, the cross that gave so many of them hope. Pastor Jim and the parishioner’s wonder how they will have the cross-repaired with no funds to hire anyone, and then Kenneth happens along.

The characters ask the questions we have all asked at some point in our lives, “where is God when bad things happen”, and “does He really hear us when we pray”? They will make you laugh and cry, they we all teach you that we need to have faith and to believe. You will find it very hard to put this book down, this is a book that will you will read again.

About The Author:

Over the course of his life, he has experienced both great highs and tremendous lows— some born of chance, some born of choice. Years before the publication of his first novel, he worked 60 hour weeks as a senior vice president at one of the nation’s largest investment firms, somehow finding time to read three to four books per week and to rough out ideas for different stories of his own.

In early 2004, while visiting his oldest daughter at a Detroit hospital, he came across a young cancer patient that was being pulled in a little red wagon by his parents. At the time, Sirls had no idea that he was looking at three characters that would appear more than eight years later in The Reason.

He was incarcerated in 2007 for wire fraud and money laundering. While in prison, Sirls learned a great deal more than he ever bargained for. Life lessons involving faith, grace, patience, and forgiveness are evident in The Reason. He is the father of two and makes his home in southern Michigan.

Prison is one of those things I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but at the same time there are few things I would trade that experience for … From a spiritual standpoint, it gave me the opportunity to slow down and realize what is important. As my faith grew, I became anxious to share the things I learned, so I figured what better way to do that than to rewrite my manuscript in a way that was a lot less magical and a lot more spiritual.”
