    Jordan Tracks starts with a patricide And that beginning almost kept me from reading the book I felt cheated It cheapened the story but I continued reading anway Though the book's cover is amateurish and it has some typos a few mechanical and grammatical errors and some pacing problems the story does deepen as it progressesWise constructs a cast of small town characters capturing their common everyday experiences their shared joys and griefs and their uiet moments He describes such mundane and grimy details about where and how the characters earn their livings at a turkey factory that you feel dirty and tired on their behalves You share in their experiences and journeysHis characters contemplate God's existence love and the nature of guilt Some wallow amidst a sea of grief and are rescued by God They hear and see their lives in the context of a larger mystery Others seemingly drown not because God isn't there for them but because they aren't listening to his ever present voice Eventually even the hopeless or doubting hear his whisperAt times the dialogue couldn't keep up with the strengths of the story Solilouies intended to convey religious fervor verged on awkward pedagogy The author softens the effect a little by commenting on a character's ability to preach but that doesn't alleviate the awkwardness I hope that it is the book and not me Maybe I'm uncomfortable with speaking loudly about GodWise sure isn't I think that may be part of why I liked the story and am touched that the last sentence in the book is about happiness and the last word in the book is soundWise certainly reminds his readers to listen for the voice of God and to bear witness to the Lord
