Life should function according to rules. Good things are meant to happen to good people. People should get the exact reward for their labour and efforts, whether good or bad. At least, these are Karen Turner's beliefs. She cannot understand why, after dutifully and lovingly raising her children to be good, stable, and loving persons, one of them has to end up being psychologically impaired. Jason Turner would be turning twenty-two years old soon and his mind is messed up as he sinks into depression with each passing moment. What causes and triggers his current situation is a mystery to his parents and Dr. Baker and all efforts by them to restore him to normalcy end up in futility.
His condition only deteriorates and Dr. Baker thinks he can only get better if taken for proper treatment at Pine View Behavioural Center, Virginia, a place that requires a lot of money for treatment and seems like their last hope of restoring Jason to good health. Having sacrificed a lot already, financially and in every other aspect of their lives, on the seemingly endless series of treatments Jason undergoes, Larry and Karen have to devise means to raise money to save their child, or they risk losing him completely.
The readers' emotions are stirred while reading No Matter The Price. One positive aspect is the ease with which readers can feel what the characters feel in the story, the plight and pain they go through and how they hold on to hope when all hope seems lost. From the beginning of the story, the writer can keep the reader interested with an adequate level of suspense because each event brings new revelations. This ensures that the reader does not lose interest while reading this book. Several events in the story cause a purgation of emotions, ranging from mild to strong.
Another positive aspect is the ability of the writer to skillfully infuse past events, which the readers are meant to know of to understand events in the story going forward. The readers understand why certain things take place from these revelations and are eager to know what is yet to come.
I found many grammatical errors in this book, like spelling errors, omission of punctuations where necessary and other errors. This forms the negative aspect of this book. It shows that it was not professionally edited. I am impressed at how great a book No Matter The Price is. Therefore, I give it a rating of 3 out of 4 stars. It did not receive a perfect rating because it was not professionally edited. I recommend this book to people who need to learn how to handle life's hurdles without giving up easily, and to people battling depression, or people whose loved ones are battling depression. It is a book suitable for practising Christians who believe in the concept of faith in God.
