The Shack by William P. Young is a Christian novel. It is a book about a father, Mackenzie Philips (Mack) who is having difficulties overcoming the death of his daughter. Four years prior Mack took three of his five children camping. He had to leave his youngest daughter to the need of his other two children. The canoe they were in tipped and his son was drowning. After the emotions and concerns regarding his two in the lake he realizes his youngest was left behind at the camp site and she is missing. A serial killer stole her and killed her, unfortunately Mack and his wife Nan never had the proper good-bye for their sweet little girl because the body was never recovered. Mack could not understand why God let this happen. He also blamed his self. At the beginning of the book Mack receives a note in his mailbox telling him to meet him at the Shack and it is signed by Papa. Papa is what Nan calls God. The shack is the place where his little girls bloody torn dress was found. Mack ends up going to the shack alone and leaves with so many answers and his life being altered once again. Was it God who sent the note? Was it Nan trying to save him? Or could it be the Little Lady Bug serial killer? I don't want to say too much because the author has requested his readers not too give too much away.
This book is definitely worth owning. I have it both paperback and on my Nook.
