Would the tunnel lead to the same walk as Enoch?
Mark Hepler is convinced God has provided a way for him to join his parents in heaven without dying. Believing God has given an unexpected answer to ease his aching heart, as well as obtain the love he thinks is forever lost, Mark awaits the appointed moment to reunite with his parents.
In the meantime, his worried uncle and aunt, Nate and Ruthann Hepler, who are oblivious to Mark’s exact perception, try to help him adjust to living with them as they attempt to promote his healing. His once-close relationship with his three cousins is strained, resulting in problem after problem, and Mark comes to believe he is not truly welcomed by any of his family members, including the uncle Mark adores.
The day finally arrives for Mark’s anticipated reunion, but it holds unexpected and life-changing circumstances for the entire family, especially for Mark, the young boy with an Enoch-like hope … to walk with God, even if he is “no more.”
You will be drawn to the Hepler family in the 1950’s as soon as you begin reading Like Enoch. They must deal with the sudden and unexpected addition of their orphaned nephew into their family of three sons following a tragic car accident. Mindy Aramouni draws on her vast experience as a wife and mother of three (including an adopted son) and years as an elementary teacher to write a gentle and sensitive, fictional account of love, grief, and empathy that should provide a way for families dealing with very non-fictional issues to initiate talks that can lead to healing. —Pat James, author of I Love Monday Mornings, The Book Every Teacher Was Going to Write! and Don’t Miss School on Mondays!
