The Covering was a fun book. That may sound weird since it deals with such serious topics, but honestly I became so engrossed in the novel and just enjoyed the story. It starts off with Tessa interceding for someone, but she doesn’t know who. And then he shows up on the scene. Gunnar is great. He’s obviously hurting, being hounded by demons, but still he is a great character. The tension between the characters was intense and I so enjoyed them that for days I would pick up my kindle and just reread parts.
One of the best things I like about this book is that it exemplifies the power of prayer. I like that Tessa literally prayed her husband into the kingdom of God. The Covering itself relates to the idea that someone’s prayers can cover, or protect you. Tessa wasn’t the first one praying for Gunnar, but her prayers were still needed. What a great point. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Pratola writes next.
