A 'state of the art' children's hospital and its occupants survive unscathed after the world is destroyed by a massive flood. The novel is narrated through the eyes of a young medical student with a tragic background and involves a huge cast of characters, heavenly angels, miracles and a vast amount of medical information. An incredible and frankly overwhelming read from a very gifted author. Well worth the time and effort.
It takes four angels to oversee an apocalypse: a recorder to make the book that would be scripture in the new world; a preserver to comfort and to save those selected to be the first generation; an accuser to remind them why they suffer; a destroyer to revoke the promise of survival and redemption, and to teach them the awful truth about furious sheltering grace.
