Book Short Summary:

Late one June night in 2011, a large animal collided with an SUV cruising down a Connecticut parkway. The creature appeared as something out of New England's forgotten past. Beside the road lay a 140-pound mountain lion. Speculations ran wild, the wildest of which figured him a ghostly survivor from a bygone century when lions last roamed the eastern United States. But a more fantastic scenario of facts soon unfolded. The lion was three years old, with a DNA trail embarking from the Black Hills of South Dakota on a cross-country odyssey eventually passing within thirty miles of New York City. It was the farthest landbound trek ever recorded for a wild animal in America, by a barely weaned teenager venturing solo through hostile terrain. William Stolzenburg retraces his two-year journey--from his embattled birthplace in the Black Hills, across the Great Plains and the Mississippi River, through Midwest metropolises and remote northern forests, to his tragic finale upon Connecticut's Gold Coast. Along the way, the lion traverses lands with people gunning for his kind, as well as those championing his cause. Heart of a Lion is a story of one heroic creature pitting instinct against towering odds, coming home to a society deeply divided over his return. It is a testament to the resilience of nature, and a test of humanity's willingness to live again beside the ultimate symbol of wildness.

Book Short Summary:

This novel contrasts the issues of obedience vs. disobedience to the divine will of God and the consequences of man's actions, depending on the path they choose to trod. It brings out the fact that there is a constant war raging within a man's soul pulling against the desire to do good versus the desire to commit evil acts. Isaiah 1:19-20 tells us that "if ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land; but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. In many instances, these light afflictions are a result and testimony to the disobedience of God's will. When our walk does not keep pace with God's instructions, every area of our lives are affected in negative ways. In addition, this novel addresses the hurtful issues encountered by Christians as they embark on a life-time journey of learning to walk in obedience to the commands of Christ. In doing good, Christians often encounter disappointment, malice, and evil deeds from other professing Christians. These encounters can thwart a Christian's growth unless they understand who is really attacking them. Ultimately, each soul must come to the understanding that it is only through Christ can a soul be delivered from any affliction brought on by the spirits of darkness. This novel is a book of hope and encouragement that no matter the affliction, God stands ready and willing to administer healing and deliverance to set a captive soul free. He can turn your light afflictions into a well of joy that springs up to bring about a sense of peace that surpasses your minute understanding in every area of your life. I pray God's continual blessings upon you. Paul S. Holmes
