Worlds Collide by Alison Strobel

Worlds Collide
by Alison Strobel
Jada, a fact checker turned biographer, has always practiced her interview skills pretending to interview Jack Herrington. Harrington, famed tv and movie star has the beginning signs of an illness and wants this one last thing done, to share his story. Grace, raised in Chicago and sick of harsh winters, decides to suddenly move to California. Things fall into place quickly and she finds a place to live and a job. Jack, has been going from one thing to another to find something meaningful. When their worlds collide in a car accident, what will happen?
I felt like this book started off almost like the behind the scenes of a biography with Jada conducting an interview. But by about 1/3 of the way into the book, I was so caught up in the story that it seemed to read much more of a fiction book. The book jumps back and forth between Grace’s story and Jack’s story, which can be confusing at first, but I once I picked up on that, I really enjoyed the story and did not want to put it down until I finished it. Strobel uniquely weaves faith into real life situations, taking a real look at how faith effects various aspects of our lives, or “what faith looks like in the real world”
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read.
I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of this review.
