"And Lead Us Not is a novel I would have written if I were still alive." -Mark Twain
You won't want to put it down. It's the kind of story that keeps drawing you in deeper into the plot because Pierson sets up each chapters ending to where you have to find out what happened next. He gives you little by little and leaves you with a surprise ending that was very satisfying. Clever with great characters, it's the kind of book that I will definitely read multiple times so it was definitely well worth the purchase.
