The Long Journey to Jake Palmer

James L Rubart
Also Available In

What if there was a place where everything wrong in your life could be fixed?

Corporate trainer Jake Palmer coaches people to see deeper into themselves-yet he barely knows himself anymore. Recently divorced and weary of the business life, Jake reluctantly agrees to a lake-house vacation with friends, hoping to escape for ten days.

When he arrives, Jake hears the legend of Willow Lake-about a lost corridor that leads to a place where one's deepest longings will be fulfilled.

Jake scoffs at the idea, but can't shake a sliver of hope that the corridor is real. And when he meets a man who mutters cryptic speculations about the corridor, Jake is determined to find the path, find himself, and fix his crumbling life.

But the journey will become more treacherous with each step Jake takes.

Outstanding
5 stars By Iola, Sep 02 2016
Jake Palmer is a management trainer who makes a living encouraging others to read what's on their label rather than believing lies about themselves. But following a horrific incident, he finds himself on a journey to read his own label-to believe the truth about himself instead of the lies he's been fed by the people he loved most, to the point he's forgotten who he was.

The Long Journey to Jake Palmer is excellent. Excellent writing, excellent characters, excellent plot, and an excellent message about learning and believing the truth about ourselves, not the lie. It's a novel of spiritual and emotional healing, subtly making the excellent point that the physical healing so many people search for is secondary to spiritual healing. 

The metaphor (and I truly can't believe I'm writing that in a book review!) of forgetting who we are is apt: I read an article yesterday which said most five-year-olds have creativity at near-genius levels. But we lose that as we get older until we become merely average. It's the same message as Rubart shares with Jake Palmer's story: we forget who we are, and we need to rediscover ourselves.

This is easily one of the best books I've read this year. Recommended-although at over 10 for the ebook, you might want to treat yourself to the paperback.
