To and Fro Upon the Earth
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This literary novel is an old-fashioned story of grief and the search for meaning in a world that seems not only uncaring, but vindictive. To and Fro Upon the Earth is a captivating (and disturbing) story about a man who rejects the common answers to life, suffering, and injustice. In his life, in his dreams, and in painful flashbacks, Jay Adam faces the agony of grave injustice, experiences the cold hand of fate, and reluctantly embarks upon a questionable search for meaning and hope.<p><p>
“In this novel, McDowell expertly drills deep into the core of humanity and exposes a raw nerve—a painful discovery, but not without purpose…it addresses a question we all face at some point in our life: is there any beauty to be found in a dark place?”

“…not for the faint of heart…McDowell takes perceived notions and completely shatters them…I believe that this novel is his wake up call to society.”

Like nothing I have read!
An unusual novel, it kept me engaged even though I didn’t always understand everything at first. But it slowly came together as I kept reading, until the ending, which was a surprise and revelation to me. Great writing, and it really made me think! There are a lot of surprises in here, too.
