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.

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
