About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

UNTAKEN: 12 Hours Following the Rapture by C.O. Wyler

UNTAKEN: 12 Hours Following the Rapture

What would you do if your husband was missing, you do not want to be pregnant, you witness a horrific airplane accident, and you learn all babies and young children have disappeared? Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah Colton may think she is in control, but she is far from the truth, not realizing the Rapture has occurred. Enter the writer's mind as she deals with this imminent, amazing event.

* Updated 2022 version of Untakenable published in 2017.


As I read this book on my Kindle, I found myself highlighting sections that I wanted to revisit and read again. This is a book that is certainly worthy of discussion, whether it be with a friend, fellow church member, or non-believer. The title UNTAKEN refers to those who are left when The Rapture occurs. They are the people who haven't accepted Christ and are thus left behind, or untaken when Jesus Christ comes again.

It's apparent that author C.O. Wyler put a lot of thought and effort into developing a story that offers mystery, belief, disbelief, hope, and despair. The characters are very realistic as they face an event that is life-changing and we witness their struggles to understand what is happening. Yes, some of it might be considered speculative or personal interpretation but Wyler uses scripture from the King James Bible to support the story that she is telling. She definitely succeeds and she does it without being pushy or overbearing! I feel that seeds may have been planted for those who aren't familiar with God's Word and questions answered for those who have doubted that Heaven exists and The Rapture will occur.

UNTAKEN: 12 Hours Following the Rapture
is a thought-provoking novel and I recommend it to all who enjoy Christian fiction.

I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


C.O. Wyler was born in Southern California and lives with her husband in the Pacific Northwest. Having owned a business for over thirty years, she is retired and enjoys her sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren.
