User Review  - James Harmeling - Goodreads

Estes is an excellent writer who draws in the reader to the context of Bitterman's circumstances and properly selects personal history to reveal his personality. He crafts the story well so that the reader feels the drama and sympathizes with the family and ministry. Read full review
