I was given an advanced copy of Kieth Merrill’s The Evolution of Thomas Hall and it’s not my normal cup of tea. Once again my loss is your gain. I’m putting it up for grabs starting now and until I turn off comments on May 8. I’ll use random.org to select a winner after the comments are turned off.

Thomas Hall is a brilliant but brash young artist who has the talent of the old masters and an eye for color . . . and women. But when he runs short of cash, he finds himself torn between illustrating a mural on the origins of man for a natural history museum—a tribute to Darwin—and illustrating the miracles of Jesus for a display inside a children’s hospital called the Healing Place.
A self-proclaimed agnostic, Thomas must dig deep within himself to believe beyond his doubts as he wrestles with that elusive something called faith. Then he meets a young, critically ill girl named Christina. Her haunting past and undeviating faith will test the very soul of Thomas and that of every reader.
