Life Everlasting

Robert Whitlow made his fans wait a little over a year for the next installment in his Santee series. The good news is–the wait was worth it. The bad news–the book was so good, it just flew by and I’m left wondering where Whitlow will go next.

Santee, Book 2 of 2

With her client’s husband somewhere between this world and the next, attorney Alexia Lindale makes an everlasting choice.

The youngest son of a family consumed by greed, Baxter Richardson lingers on this earth in a coma. His wife wants him dead to protect her secrets. His brother wants him dead to gain control of the family empire. And though Baxter’s father fights to keep him alive, even he has ulterior motives.

But Baxter has a surprising ally. A classically trained pianist, Ted Morgan believes music can be used as prayer. And Ted’s divinely-inspired playing has been slowly pulling Baxter back from the brink of death.

Attorney Alexia Lindale represents Baxter’s wife, Rena, but has no idea that she and her client are being played in a game that has higher stakes than a single legal case.

As Baxter grows stronger, the more endangered he becomes. As Alexia navigates her responsibilities to her client, her confusing relationship with the gifted musician, and her new relationship with God, she must discern the truth as it pertains to life, death…and life everlasting.

Reader Quotes

You leave this book feeling that all is right with the world and with the conclusion that no matter what happens to us, God is in control and when we rely on him, his infinite wisdom provides us with the answers we need to guide us to the right path.Reader


One thing I’ve come to enjoy about Whitlow’s novels is that he places the characters in interesting moral and ethical situations and doesn’t take the easy way out. Also, his characters feel real over the course of his story. He gives them strengths, weaknesess and flaws–just like all of us. His prose is extremely readable and he never goes over the top. Instead, he draws you in like an old friend telling a story and the pages just fly by. Indeed, my only complaint about this story is that it ended too soon. I was ready to spend another 100 or more pages with the story of Alexi Lindale and her personal journey.Reader

    Is there going to be a number 3 in the Life Support, Life Everlasting Series?

  2. Jill

    I want to know the same thing. Is there a book 3 planned? Or is the story over after book 2?

  3. Judy Wright

    I just finished the Santee Series and feel like there should be another book to end the series. What did Baxter say at the court proceddings? What happens to Rena? What about the corruption in the Richardson family? Does Baxter have a relationship with the Lord now? Just so many unanswered questions.

  4. Sandy Sheaffer

    Is there going to be a book 3 in this series?

  5. janelle Beeson

    I wanted to read the 2nd book but after reading these post unless there is a book 3 it looks like I will just be left hanging.

    Is there going to be Book3 ???

  6. Mike

    I was going to purchase these two books, but seeing that there is no conclusion … It has been 8 years since Life Everlasting was published, there doesn’t seem to any reason to expect one at this point.

  7. Julie Neddo

    I wanted to purchase book 2 but if there is no conclusion an no book 3 I don’t think I want to be left hanging.

  8. Joan Hoyt

    Is there a book three in the Santee Series? If so when? As the librarian at our church, I keep getting this question. What do I tell your readers?
    Thank you, Joan

  9. April Nelson

    I too would like to know if there will be a third book in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed books 1 and 2; I could not put them down. I am a voracious reader and enjoy a good series.

    What a great sequel to Life Support! I only wish there was a book three!!!!! The Christian reader is blessed to have such a great suspense author who knows the Lord and can weave together such a great book. I know Life Support received great kudos, but I liked Life Everlasting more!

  11. Beth

    Its not nice to leave us hanging here for years and years…LOL. We need the number three book PLEASE??!! And he/she opened his/her eyes……AND THEN WHAT??!!

  12. Elvira Thiessen

    I too wonder if there will be a book 3

  13. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Cheers!|

    Is there going to a book three to the Santee Series, are we going to be left wondering what happen to Baxter, his brother, their father, Ted, Rena, Alex, just to many unanswers questions left from book two. Hope there is a book three, if so how can I get a copy of this book.

  15. Edna Gabriel

    please can anyone help me with this information on where to get this book in Nigeria. specifically Lagos state?
    thanks.

  16. Dennis

    I really enjoyed this book until the last page when I was left hanging again. What happened to Baxter’s father and brother? They were dangerous killers. And, what happened to Rena? I felt cheated when I read the last page and there were still so many loose ends. I won’t read any more of his books for fear they will end like this one.

  17. Sherry Shearer

    Is it possible to get Life Everlasting?

    • Sam

      Yes I just bought it yesterday on my iphone. Finished it just about an hour ago! It is good, but it’s kinda a hung jury

  18. Sam

    Really want a book 3, then a movie would be a success!

    Robert,
    The people have spoken ( your fans )
    We want a conclusion to Santee
