It tells the story of a step mother’s enduring love for a child whose birth mother wants nothing to do it. It’s a story of redemption, grace and second chances. The world would call Jimmy slow but this book would enlighten you on the things that matters most in the fast paced world we live in. How a little boy’s innocence and sincerity can be so enjoyable and be a road to salvation for the lost. How good overcomes in a world where evil seems to prevail. These and more are penned with the actions of the amazing characters of Whitlow’s book
The novel is written in the fashion of classics like ‘Huckleberry Finn’ with court and legal sessions like the style of John Grisham. The major strength in the writing style of this book is how the author is able to create so much suspense and humor and still pass a yet profound truth with very simple and not complicated characters.
