From Elaine Pasquali:
This is a fictionalized account of Mackenzie Allen Philips’ spiritual journey following the brutal abduction and murder of his youngest daughter, Missy. Engulfed by a “Great Sadness,” Mack is surprised to find a note from God. The note invites Mack to spend a weekend with God at the scene of Missy’s murder, the shack. Mack skeptically goes to the shack and seeks an answer to the eternal question, how can God permit unspeakable evil and pain to exist in the world? There are many twists in Mack’s journey and the end of his story is the most surprising twist of all.
