Jessica’s review: Scars on the Face of God by C.G. Bauer


As a lover of books, reading, and technology, you would think I would have been an e-book reader for long time. That has not been the case with me. I want to feel the pages in my hand. I want to be able to lie in bed and read until I fall asleep. Well, for the first time I have read a book completely in digital format.

C.G. Bauer was kind enough to send me a copy of his e-book for review. Despite my protest of reading a book in its entirety on my laptop, I started reading this one.

What I found is that a great story will draw you in and make you do things you didn’t want to do. This book definitely did that for me. I couldn’t wait to learn more about Wump, the Devil’s Book, and the town of Three Bridges even if that meant sitting for hours at my computer. This is a VERY well written book about discovery, faith, and secrets.

Wump was an orphan living in Three Bridges. When he was about twelve years old, he found a dead baby floating in the river and its screams haunted him for years afterward. Forty years later, the town’s deepest darkest secrets are revealed when old sewage drains are knocked loose spilling out the skeletons of over one hundred babies. Why is this happening? Is it because of toxic chemicals being dumped by the local tannery? Is it because of corrupt church leaders? Is there a dark force working through a book?

I don’t want to put too many of the plot details here, but I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. It is a page turner for sure!
