Every Waking Moment
by Chris Fabry
Meet Treha Langsam, a mysterious young woman with a gift - a gift for reaching the unreachable. When Treha receives an anonymous letter bringing her to Desert Gardens to work, little did she know that her story would intersect with one of the residents. With no memory of her childhood, Treha spends her days helping the retired residents share their stories with a documentary team. When the board of directors hire a new director, Treha loses her job and begins a journey unraveling her own past. Is she ready to learn why she is the way she is?
"As the truth slowly unravels, Treha and those around her must each tackle a difficult question: if this is as good as life gets, is that enough?" (back cover)

Chris Fabry writes from the heart and delves into the souls of his characters. After a slow beginning, the pieces of the puzzle begin to come together. He gives a voice to the aging population in Every Waking Moment, an insight into their thoughts and desires. During the documentary interviews, we see each resident striving to retain their dignity and independence. As Devlin and Jonah record their oral histories, they are intrigued by Treha and her gift. Can they help her remember her past? Is she the reason they are at Desert Garden?
Throughout the novel, Chris weaves the love of Christ - His forgiveness. A message I needed to hear; God has a plan for each of us right where we are. I do not have to be perfect for Him to use me, just open to His leading.
