One Extraordinary Day by Harold Myra

Many people can identify with the main character in “One Extraordinary Day.” Daniel seems to have little control of his life. He’s overworked, tired, and depressed. His wife encourages him to get away for a day to re-energize. While walking in the woods, he meets a mysterious person. Is he simply a stranger or something more?

Harold Myra has crafted a story that has more of a ‘Twilight Zone’ feel than Christian fantasy. Stories filled with allegory entertain and fascinate me, but this book had more fact than fantasy, or was it the other way around? The book weaves the story of redemption in a simple and profound way, but I fear the message gets lost in the premise, and the loose threads of fantasy, of which there are many, are too tightly wrapped up in the end. It’s a pleasant enough book, but one I’d recommend only for readers with deep, theologically sound roots.
