Til the Last Drop by Marquis Boone * A Review
Six months later, Valencia's life is still in shambles. As she walks on a path lined with grief, frustration, illness, and loneliness, Valencia is too frightened to seek help from doctors, on whom she quietly blames her mother's premature death. As she prays for answers, nothing seems to heal her persistent medical condition, prompting Valencia to plummet down a dark tunnel of despair. Desperate for answers, Valencia draws inspiration from the worn pages of her mother's Bible, fueled by an unyielding determination to find healing. But three years later, as she is led to the doors of a holistic center where she believes she will finally be helped, Valencia helplessly watches as her life disintegrates once again-completely unaware that the Holy Spirit is waiting to comfort her.
'Til the Last Drop is the inspirational story of one woman's journey to the truth as she learns to listen to her heart, never give up, and, above all, trust in God.

Til The Last Drop is an O.K. book. I love books that show our Father in Heaven and Him talking to the angels or to Jesus about us here on earth. This book does that in which I really liked. I thought that part of the book was well written and full of love and compassion.
The things I didn’t like about Til The Last Drop were how the Valencia and Arthur didn’t get along after the tragedy and how they ended up leaving each other and divorcing. I know that happens in some cases, but I didn’t think it worked for this book. When things like this happen I feel husband and wife should and often do pull together.
Also the other thing I didn’t like about this story was the surprise ending. It was quite a let down and just left me feeling empty. I was really shocked at it and wish it were different. I think this could have been a really sweet story if it were told a little different.
It’s an O.K. book if you don’t have anything better to do.
