A Distant Thunder by Anita Stansfield. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

"After battling personal, professional, and financial setbacks, it looks as though Jayson finally has it all—fame, fortune, and a great family. However, he learns how swiftly a rising star can become extinguished. The problem was that Jayson actually had no life left at all. He had no career, no daughter or mother who needed him. His brother was busy with a flourishing career, and Elizabeth had her family.

Just when he reaches an irreversible crisis point in his life, God’s arms reach out to protect Jayson from his own worst impulses. But the road to healing can be arduous and elusive. And even with the love and support of his precious Elizabeth, can Jayson be reclaimed?"

This is part two of 'The Jayson Wolfe' series by Anita Stansfield. I think these are my favorite books by her - ever! I really feel like I know Jayson Wolfe. Perhaps it's because music has always been such a big part of my own life, it's easy to identify and relate with him. In this book, there is a part where he loses the use of his fingers and feels like his life is over without the ability to create music. That is how I would feel without the ability to play the piano. Another question that comes up in this book, will Jayson and Elizabeth ever be together? I can't wait to find out how the series will end in the next book!!
