Fifteen years after college graduation, four friends reconnect to keep a long-ago promise and go on a trip of a lifetime in the Australian Outback.

Eliza needs to disconnect from her high-powered fashion job to consider the CEO position she’s just been offered. Lincoln hopes to rekindle a past relationship and escape from another one. Bree looks forward to a fun getaway from home and her deeply buried disappointments. Andy wants to disappear from the mess he’s made of his life—possibly forever.

Dropped at a campsite in the middle of nowhere, the friends quickly discover they aren’t the same people they once were, and they begin to confront hard truths about one another—and themselves. Then a bizarre storm sweeps across their camp, scattering them across the desert. Wondering if they are part of some strange escape game, each of the friends meets a guide to help them find exactly what they need: purpose, healing, courage, and redemption.

But they’ve already traveled far down the road of life and course-correcting to become the people they were meant to be won’t be easy.

I enjoyed the journey that this book has taken me on. I think it's because of the life's lessons that this book has to offer and it certainly does make us think about some of the passages that were in this book.
I have Read David's book The Camera doesn't lie so when I seen this one I thought I'd give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. I like the way he can make his characters' come to life and we're able to feel their feelings come out of the pages to us as readers.
The setting of Australia was so well described that I was able to picture myself in the story. I didn't want to leave of course.
In my opinion however I felt that the four friends were sort of hard to connect with but I still enjoyed the journey. You don't need to connect with the people in book to like it.
I do believe that God puts certain people at times in our lives to help us get through whatever circumstances we may be in. I call them Guardian Angels. I don't know what I would do without mine.
I certainly recommend this book. I did finish the book in one day. I didn't want to put it down.
My thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own
