The Man He Never Was by James L. Rubart

"Rubart will leave readers inspired . . ." --Publishers Weekly STARRED review for The Long Journey to Jake Palmer

What if You Woke up One Morning and the Darkest Parts of Yourself Were Gone?

Toren Daniels vanished eight months back, and his wife and kids have moved on--with more than a little relief. Toren was a good man but carried a raging temper that often exploded without warning. So when he shows up on their doorstep out of the blue, they're shocked to see him alive. But more shocked to see he's changed. Radically.

His anger is gone. He's oddly patient. Kind. Fun. The man he always wanted to be. Toren has no clue where he's been but knows he's been utterly transformed. He focuses on three things: Finding out where he's been. Finding out how it happened. And winning back his family.

But then shards of his old self start to rise from deep inside--like the man kicked out of the NFL for his fury--and Toren must face the supreme battle of his life.

In this fresh take on the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, James L. Rubart explores the war between the good and evil within each of us--and one man's only chance to overcome the greatest divide of the soul. @goodreads 

*I would like to thank BookLookBloggers for a print copy of this book.*

Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me. I just couldn't get into it. I loved the idea of a Jekyll and Hyde type character though.

Torren is a man who wakes up in a hotel room, not knowing how he got there. Turns out he has lost 8 months of his life. He then goes on a journey to find out what happened to him and why.

When he visits his wife and children to try to explain what happened, a type of anmesia, they didn't want him there. They were actually glad that he had been missing since he was such a horrible man with a bad temper. He was even kicked out of the NFL because of this temper.

Ultimately, this is the story of Torren's journey of what happened to him, why and his new faith and bringing his family back together.

I'm sure many will love this book.

Happy Reading!
