Imagine a world full of love, betrayal, loyalty and religious activities. This is the world created by William H. Coles in The Spirit of Want.
A.J. Invites his colleague Luke to attend a party at his place. Before the end of the party, Luke is introduced to A.J’s two daughters Lucy and Elizabeth through the wife to A.J.(Agnes). Some weeks later Lucy and Luke get married without informing her parents.
I loved the way the plot was created with every character strongly developed especially lucy. She is beautiful and clever than Elizabeth but still, she felt unwanted in the family. She struggles to find a balance in her life. Trying to balance between her career and raising her daughter Jennifer.
Things took a drift turn in Luke's life after Lucy is selected to defend an evangelist accused of sexual relations with an underage girl. Because of career commitments, Luke and Lucy rarely have time for each other and their daughter Jennifer is being raised by a nanny. Will this kind of marriage survive? Was the marriage based on true love? What will happen to Jennifer?
It's hard to believe that not all relationships base on true love. It's also hard to believe that not all friendship is real. This is evident when A.J is facing charges over an alleged surgery procedure that blinded the patient. A committee within the hospital is formed to investigate the allegations. A.J dismissed a practitioner who knew everything concerning the operation in order to hide evidence. With all the evidence provided a proving A.J guilty of malpractice, what will happen to him? Will he be jailed?.
William H. Coles has never disappointed in his work. His ability to create a story full of drama and twists without forgetting the unpredictability of the sequence and characterization. The Spirit of Want is that book that fully captures your attention from the beginning to the end. It fills your mind with many questions and eagerness to know what happens next, this will keep you opening the pages up to the last page.
I really liked reading the book but what I liked the most in the book was the unpredictable nature of events. It was hard to guess what happens next hence I just had to read in order to find out. It was well edited although it had some mistakes including blank pages after almost every chapter but did not have any impact while reading. I rate this book 4 stars out of 4 and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys love and betrayal at the same time. It's very entertaining and educative.
