Wakulla Book Review: The Newspaper Code by Lisa J. Lickel
The Newspaper Code is the third book of the Buried Treasures Mystery Series. And once again, there are many treasures buried in the story waiting for the reader to discover. The story centers around a statue and some gold that’s missing from the town treasury since the 1860s.
While looking for the gold, we find many more valuable treasures along the way. The people in the story learn about friendships and being friendly. They learn to trust, to listen, and to be patient. Ms. Lickel is able to help us to see our own flaws in a humorous light. Every reader should be able to connect with at least one of the characters!!
What we fine as we read this is the most important and valuable treasure of all—Jesus! Through the flawed and bumbling cast, it is easy to see our imperfections, our limitations and our deep need for a savior to forgive us and cleanse us. In the end, it is healing and restoring relationships that matter most, especially over a relationship with God. Excellent book.
Wakulla Book Review by Loren
I want to personally thank all the men who are reviewing the books written by JOHN 3:16 AUTHORS. I am thankful that we are able to bless them and appreciate the encouragement given to us by their reviews.
Each WEEK (usually on Tuesday), we are posting reviews from
Wakulla Correctional inmates of John 3:16 books.
Inmates are loving the new books from John 3:16 authors.
Chaplain Steve Fox is adding the new books to the prison library in this initiative to "change lives to ensure a safer Florida."
