JAMES “POPS” JACKSON ALWAYS SAYS, “*Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.” Sometimes all it takes is one instance, one word or action that you can’t take back and it changes the course of your life. PEACE ON THAT: The Peacemaker II by T.L. Criswell is a compelling story about a man’s path to destruction and his hope for redemption and forgiveness.
JAYSON “Big Man” JACKSON HAD IT ALL: The money, the power, the status, but he had a secret. A trail of money, deceit and lies led straight to his door and before he knew it he was in over his head. Jayson’s fall from grace was a ‘bought lesson.’ Choices can either uplift or ruin, but they will always teach a lesson.
SECRETS PLAYED A BIG PART in this book. Some secrets were meant to protect, but those secrets ultimately caused pain. The father (Pops) carried a secret to his grave and the son (Jayson) carried on the legacy. As Jayson’s life unraveled so did his secrets.
THOUGHTS for your SOUL:
- ” If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way. If you don’t then you’ll find an excuse.”
- “What good is an apology if it’s not said when it matters the most?”
PEACE ON THAT is full of twists and turns. The characters are realistic and easily identifiable. As a reader, it’s hard to find a favorite; just when you find yourself rooting for one, another one shows up. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try apologies are never enough, misunderstandings don’t get resolved, feelings stay hurt, but in the end, life goes on.
THERE ARE NO ANSWERS only actions that pave the way to forgiveness, accountability, and redemption. Big Man wanted and needed a second chance. Hopefully, it wasn’t too late.
Let’s BOND over BOOKS rates PEACE ON THAT as CHALLENGINGLY CHARISMATIC (301-500 pages) . . . borderline lengthy — It better have a good ending . . . and it does!
