Let me start by saying that I am not much of a reader and rarely finish an entire book, but in the case of reading Following After Trek, I read cover to cover without any pause or fight. In fact, I read it twice within a week. Yes I am family and a bit biased, but I can honestly say that Following After Trek holds it’s own aside from all of those facts!
I have always thought Jarrett is an excellent writer and this book proved that even more to me. It portrays Trek’s beautiful life with his family in the best way possible and although it is heart wrenching, it is so perfectly written through his daddy’s words. You can feel Jarrett’s heart through every word and Trek’s beauty is remembered so perfectly through those words. I talk to my sister almost every day and have such a strong connection with her. I know her heart, even if only a fraction of what she feels, but I hurt with her. There is no way I could ever know how her or Jarrett feel. I have always thought highly of Jarrett and am one proud sister-in-law, but it was not until I read his book that I truly got to see his hurt and his heart. You feel as if you are there and his words really pull you in. It is so hard to understand what they went through and still go through each and every minute of the day; I am so thankful for his words and for allowing us to be a part of the journey through his novel.
The book will make you laugh, cry and experience every possible emotion. I could not put it down and spent many hours unaware of my surroundings because I was so engrossed in it. I did not know what to expect and I was extremely pleased and pleasantly surpised with every word. His detailing was amazing as if I was there and I could picture how everything looked perfectly. I felt connected to each character. With each chapter I wanted more and the more I read the more I had to keep reading to find out what happened next. It was neat to see how the fiction and real life events all flowed together and never once was I bored. I was so lucky to be a part of Trek’s life and it was even more special to read about those moments through Jarrett’s words…someone who knew him best and loved him most alongside Chelsea. All of the beauty of Trek’s life was truly justified through the novel. The love between each of them was greatly expressed and only left me wanting to live more fully and love more deeply.
Aside from me knowing sweet Trek and his family and even having the joy of spending time with them, as just a reader, I was blown away by the book in more ways than one! I don’t even know how to describe it appropriately or express how amazing it is, I only write this post in hopes that everyone will read it and share it! You will not regret it and I am excited to see how it grows and where Trek’s story continues to travel. What better way for his beautiful life to be shared than through his daddy’s words?! Please help me share Following After Trek with everyone.
