Recovering Charles by Jason F. Wright

Recovering Charles
Recovering Charles by Jason F. Wright Book Review by Emily

When Luke Millward discovers that his estranged father was living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit, he is hesitant to do anything about it. A stranger calls, saying that his father is missing, but Luke has little desire to help with the search.

His girlfriend and mentor convince him that it's the right thing to do, but, unconvinced, he takes his time to get down there.

While in New Orleans, Luke, being a photographer, takes pictures of the shocking devastation. He meets the people who got to know his father before the hurricane. Through these people, he comes to respect his father and, in the process, he learns a few things about himself, too.

Recovering Charles is a feel-good book like Jason Wright's other books, The Wednesday Letters (which I loved) and Christmas Jars. It's about discovering yourself, forgiveness, and love.


  1. I enjoyed Recovering Charles and the Wednesday Letters. I haven't read Christmas Jars, but I'll have to get it from the library. Good books.

  2. I can't tell you how excited I am that I found this blog. I LOVE to read good books and I hate finding books full of smut. I just read The Wednesday Letters last week and was pleased by it. So excited to get more ideas here. Thanks for putting this together!

  3. I am so happy I've found your blog. I do all kinds of internet searches for clean books but as you know there is very little out there. Although I am a Christian I don't like a lot of "Christian Fiction" because of flat characters and predictable plot lines. I have managed to find some good clean reads though, and I know I'll be trying some of your recommendations. You have a new follower!
