Rooks at Dusk: On the Other Side of Despair, What Is Left to Believe In?Rooks at Dusk: On the Other Side of Despair, What Is Left to Believe In? by Chick Yuill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m always a little wary about ‘Christian fiction’ when it can feel a bit like Jesus is shoe-horned in in a way that makes no sense! This is not the case with Chick’s book – a page turner of a novel that I read in a single evening, in which a loss of faith for a minister is central to the story. There’s a huge amount of emotion in the book – especially negative emotion (great to read a book with a lead male character dealing with this) – I found myself with a v deep lump in my throat during the ‘B&B conversation’ (v unusual for me) as everyday life was lived with a certain amount of rawness. The humour, however, also shines through and (possible spoiler) things are not tied up neatly at the end …
