Beyond the Higher Ground is a book written by Thomas A. Brigger. It appears to be a mix of historical fiction and other genres. The book centres around a young man named Tucker Mason, who has recently lost his wife. The situation led him to a state of emotional breakdown, which he had yet to overcome. Afterwards, he was put in charge of a prison construction site. On his quest, he must look out for comfortable accommodation to make his work easier. He got one situated around Bright's mountain: a den of drug lords and addicts. These drug users, being uncomfortable with the idea of situating a prison in their domain, must find every possible means to frustrate the plan. Mason Tucker must, however, be prepared to overcome the challenges they pose and also deal with imminent issues surrounding his new apartment. How will he cope with all these looming dangers? Find out in this book.
I love the way the book was written. The author did a nice job of arranging the content together. It was highly compelling and intriguing. It showed qualities of bravery and persistence. Tucker Mason had issues to deal with in his new environment. The environment wasn't friendly, but despite the challenges at the beginning, he continued. I like to call this an act of persistence and determination. This is a very vital ingredient in one's journey to success. And that character was displayed by the emotion-driven Tucker Mason.
I didn't dislike anything about the content of this book. I love the rich cast of characters it has and the suspense nature thereof. I enjoyed the story from the beginning to the end. One thing that I kept on ruminating about was why Tucker Mason, after discovering some negative energies around the newly found house, insisted on staying. On second thought, I felt that it made the story more interesting. I usually enjoy fiction books of this nature, but this one was more enjoyable due to its mix of fiction with other genres.
The author did nice work with the editorial aspect of this book too, as I found just a few errors in it. The words were in a pure and free-flowing pattern. In addition, it was written in the third person, although some of the words were just so informal that I hardly understood some of them. Sometimes, I had to neglect some of them and move on. However, someone else may not understand some of the terms used in the book. With this, I give this book a rating of 3 out of 4 stars.
I recommend this book to lovers of historical fiction and non-fiction, as the book appears to combine many genres. However, no matter your area, Beyond the Higher Ground will interest you.
