Book of Days: Jim Rubart draws from real-life experiences
Nashville, Tenn.--On the heels of the wildly successful Rooms (#17 on ECPA best-seller list for Sept. 2010), James L. Rubart pens Book of Days, a supernatural suspense novel born from his father’s struggle with Alzheimer’s.
“I was watching my dad lose his memories,” Rubart says. “And I wondered, what happens to those memories? I remembered Psalm 139:16 ‘All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.’ That gave me hope for my dad, peace for me and the idea for a novel.”
In Book of Days, Cameron Vaux’s mind is slipping. Memories of his wife, killed two years earlier are vanishing, just as he dying father said they would. So Cameron goes on a quest to find “the book with all the days in it.” And it is on this quest that Cameron becomes reacquainted with his wife’s best friend, an TV host who believes the book is a farce, but is drawn into the search and is immediately faced with danger as others with evil motivations are also searching for the book—and are willing to kill for it.
“My dad passed away while I was writing this book so the dedication simply says, For Dad.” Rubart says. “So the release of the book will be bitter-sweet.”
