Críticas:

"I wept over this book as I read it, and I'm still haunted by it. Wiersema's compassion for us all shines through in writing that is vivid and very often disturbingly powerful. He is a beautiful writer, and this is a beautiful book."
-Gail Anderson-Dargatz, author of The Cure for Death by Lightning, A Recipe for Bees" "and A Rhinestone Button"
"
"I read this book in less than three days, over the Christmas holidays with a house full of family and friends, and every time I had to put it down, I found myself compiling lists of people for whom I wanted to buy it. It captured me from the opening page and kept me going, wanting more, because it is a wonderful story, superbly told. The tight, tersely written chapters with their constantly changing points of view had me totally enthralled, because the characters are all utterly believable; every one of them rings true, with no miscues. A wonderful novel from a storyteller who knows what being a master of the craft entails."
-Jack Whyte, author of the Dream of Eagles series
"Inventively told using cinematic jump cuts and fantastical interventions, Before I Wake provocatively dances along the lines between faith and science, life and death. Robert Wiersema's first novel shows a writer possessed with the kind of storytelling instincts that make you care about the answer to the one question that really counts: What happens next?"
-Andrew Pyper, author of The Wildfire Season

"Before I Wake is a stunning debut. Robert Wiersema's novel is original, thought-provoking and downright wonderful."
-Michael Connelly, author of The Closers" "and The Lincoln Lawyer
"Through a tale that is both intimate and profound, Robert J. Wiersema reminds us there is magic in truth, and truth in the fantastic. Before I Wake is an edge-of-your-seat debut that is "never" faint of heart."
-Ami McKay, author of The Birth House"

..."rivetting debut novel...Wiersema has crafted a literary, supernatural thriller that grips the reader in a chokehold on page one and doesn't let go until the very last line...Before I Wake is a classic thriller: creepy in all the right places and deliciously suspenseful. Beyond that, it has great emotional depth and resonance."

"From the Hardcover edition."

" Robert Wiersema . . . has written an accomplished first novel, the sort of book veteran novelists might well envy. . . . Before I Wake is deceptively easy to read because it is so well written and so emotionally engaging. It is not, however, an easily forgotten book. It will haunt you long after you've lent it to a friend. And lend it you will, because it is too good not to share."
- "National Post"
" We go along for this unusual ride - that takes us to purgatory and awakens images of the inquisition - because we trust Wiersema's consummate skill: a talent that makes him one of our most promising and original voices."
- "The Gazette" (Montreal)

Descripción St Martin s Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.After an unthinkable tragedy happens, an unbelievable miracle begins. . . Three-year-old Sherry is the adored only child of Simon and Karen Barrett. But when Sherry is critically injured in a hit-and-run accident, the fault lines in the Barretts s marriage begin to show. As her parents marriage falls apart, it is discovered that Sherry has miraculous healing powers. Meanwhile, the guilt-stricken driver of the truck attempts suicide--but is unable to die.

As word of Sherry s powers spread, her parents must decide how best to shelter their daughter and help the many sick and dying who are drawn to her side. At the same time, a larger battle is brewing-- one that has been raging for two thousand years, and one that might yet claim the lives of Sherry and her family. Robert J. Wiersema s brilliant debut novel sheds light on the inner lives of characters struggling against tragedy, who find each other and themselves in the darkness. Before I Wake reveals the power of forgiveness, and the true nature, and cost, of miracles. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAV9780312381059
