If Cameron Vaux can’t find it, he will lose everything.

“You will lose your mind. When it starts happening…you must find the Book of Days.” When Cameron’s dying father delivers this message, he brushes it off. Lose his memory? He’s only twenty-five. Find a book that doesn’t even exist. Foolishness. Nothing more than the product of his father’s dementia.

But now, eight years after his father’s death, it’s happening. Chunks of Cameron’s life are just—gone. Even memories of his wife, killed two years ago, have slipped away. Could it be…? Is his father’s eerie prediction coming true?

Desperate, Cameron determines to fulfill his father’s last wish. He will find the Book of Days. But when a lead takes him to the small town of Three Peaks, Oregon, Cameron realizes dark secrets are at work. The townspeople, warm as apple pie at first, turn cold as liquid nitrogen when Cameron mentions the Book. As his mind works against him, Cameron discovers that friends may be enemies. And the one person Cameron can’t stand? She might be his strongest ally.

But there are others seeking the Book. Others who will stop at nothing to get it. And they’re closer than Cameron ever imagined.…

    " Book of Days by James L. Rubart is a fascinating look at memory, forgiveness, and God. Cameron Vaux watched his father die eight years ago, but even more terrible than his death was watching him lose his memories to a devastating illness. Now, two years after the death of his beloved wife Jessie, Cameron is starting to worry that he may suffer from that same illness. He's forgetting conversations moments after they happen, missing appointments, and reading notes in his own handwriting as if for the first time, but even worse than that, he's losing his memories of Jessie. Just before his father and Jessie died, each told Cameron of a book of days that he must seek out, but he's ignored their instructions until now, as he begins losing himself, he feels that the book just may hold the answer he needs. He heads to Three Peaks, Oregon in his search and asks Jessie's best friend Ann Bannister to help him in his quest. Ann has her own reasons for going to Three Peaks, more than just her long hidden feelings for Cam. She wants to find out more about her mother who died of a heroin overdose when Ann was just eleven. Cameron and Ann meet Taylor Stone, who seems to have all the answers they need; Jason Judah, whose malicious manipulations and desire to own the book turn them off, and others in the small town, all of whom are enigmatic at best and threatening at worst. Their investigation tells them that the Book of Days was written by God with everyone's memories, the past, and the future all written out for anyone to read, and each person has their own reasons for wanting, or not wanting, to find it. Rubart's writing is compelling and fascinating, as he pulls readers in farther and farther with each turn of the page. My one quibble is that in his attempt to throw readers off in the identity of the bad guy, he leaves them confused as to just why the antagonist was willing to go so far; it's motivations are a mystery. Still, the story is thoroughly entertaining, and the revelation about the Book both satisfying and poignant. Rubart is an exciting new Christian fiction who will be changing the face of the genre with each book he writes. "

    " Three Peaks Oregon, this is the place where I fly to whenever I have a chance, of course in my mind, thanks to this book. The quest for the book of days is just the occasion to jump into this beatiful story, played in this peaceful corner of earth, with its exceptional three sister mountains. A good book must keep me glued to the coach, not hearing of thinking of nothing else but the story I am reading, and this is the power this book has. One little remark: perhaps the author enjoyed using the same language of the well-know commercial for Mastercard, while telling us about Cameron's expectations of Ann's reaction. To me it seems a lack of style, although I can forgive him :) "

    " A good read and easy pace. "

    " This book was AWESOME! I loved it! Very moving. All I can say is READ IT! "

    " Excellent book. I enjoyed the journey of the hero and heroine. The heroine's story could have been a little more prominent, but since the author is a man it makes sense for the male to have a greater role. The secondary characters were great, too. The message and hope inside this story make it something I would recommend to all. "

    " I began reading Book of Days in the anniversary month of my grandmother's death. Just reading the first chapter or two was painful because I was in Cameron's very shoes, watching my grandmother deteriorate before my eyes, forgetting who I was and finally not knowing anyone. When I was halfway through the book, my mother suffered a stroke. Even though it was very mild and she still has use of her body and can talk, they talked about how her memory might not be the same and how to prevent a worse stroke. I began to fear, like Cameron, but instead of being afraid for my own memories, I was in fear for my mother. Was it a coincidence that I was reading this very book at this particular time in my life? I think not. I felt as if the author was telling this story just for me, and was brought to tears by the ending of the book. Many people compare Book of Days to his earlier work, Rooms, but I really didn't see a resemblance. Rooms was very special to me too, and holds a slight edge over Book of Days, but only slight. I have discovered a new favorite author in James Rubart, and hope he continues to publish for years to come! "

    " I never thought I'd be reading Christian fiction, but fortunately it wasn't overly preachy. There is enough of a mystery to it to keep it interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/6/2014

    " A man who is starting to lose his memories is drawn to search for "the book of days", where he believes the past, present, and future are recorded. Though the author occasionally hit some off-key notes in his writing style, this book had an intriguing premise and proved to be an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marliss | 11/1/2013

    " I loved this book. I see a loose theme in the two books Jim Rubart has written. They are about decisions we make, how they change our lives, and the grace and mercy of God, Who will be found by the seeker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evie | 8/20/2013

    " The ending could have been a lot better. Didn't care for the cheesiness of the romance aspect of the story. "

    " Not as good as his other two books but an interesting concept. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina Allen | 12/20/2012

    " A decent read with a fairly good payoff at the end. It didn't keep me riveted though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kahri Lynn | 11/20/2012

    " Reminds me of Frank Peretti. Quick read, liked it, but not as much as Rooms. Was a little let down by the book, but not sure why...will have to contemplate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 10/22/2012

    " This is a faith based book. It is about a man who is searching for the future. He discovers that making choices is a huge part of living. There are a few twists and turns added to make the story more fun. I would recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 8/16/2012

    " LOVED IT! I couldn't put this book down. I thought it would be predictable, but it wasn't at all! If you enjoyed Rooms, you will enjoy Book of Days. Well done, Jim! "

    " I loved this book. I didn't quite like it as much as Rooms, but I still loved it. I really like his writing style. Looking forward to reading more of his stuff. "

    " Since I loved Rubart's first novel, Rooms, I was excited to read Book of Days. Sadly, I was very disappointed. The plot was disjointed and it struggled to keep my attention. I'd recommend reading Rooms instead. "
