    Wow this is one amazing story. I now need to read the first book in this series for the beginning of the story. When I saw the question “What if you had a chance to ask a loved one for forgiveness, after they died? I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel.Michael Sullivan created a story with amazing characters that would sure find a special place in the hearts of readers. The author combines First Century setting and Biblical fiction, me...

    This one flunked the hundred page test. Unrealistic characters, no apparent plot, vanilla writing.A book published in 2012 in which father gives daughter a twenty dollar bill with which she buys a pizza, four news papers and two magazines. On what planet?Apparently a later part of a continuing story, but never seemed to start this story.Sorry.

    Read a third of this book and just couldn't get into it. After 11/22/63 and Cappuccino Heaven, it just doesn't seem like anything else in time travel or life after death compares. I quit reading it. I wanted to like it after reading all the reviews and perhaps it got better toward the end, but it just cant takethe entire first half if a novel to reign the reader in. As a Christian, I have to admit it came across a little corny.

    I love it when I can find a unique take on a great historical novel and I found one hidden in the pages of Michael John Sullivan's latest novel, Everybody's Daughter. This is a unique blend of Science Fiction and Biblical Historical Romantic Suspense Fiction, so there is bound to be something for just about every book lover's genre!In this wonderful novel, Michael Stewart and his daughter Elizabeth have the uncanny ability to be able to travel ba...

    Everybody's Daughter, by Michael J. Sullivan, is both the second book of a trilogy as well as a novel that can easily stand on its own. You don't have to have read Necessary Heartbreak, the first in the trilogy, in order to enjoy this one (but you should because it adds to the richness of the read and because Necessary Heartbreak is a great title).Everybody's Daughter centers on Michael Stewart, a long-widowed forty-something whose greatest accom...

    The first chapter left me bit confused, but it seems this is a second book from a Trilogy. The first book was Necessary Heartbreak and Everybody’s Daughter is the continuation.The plot is nothing original as its all about Time Traveling, but what it makes it interesting was that the Author have taken it to another direction---a a time travel to Jerusalem.It was a vivid picture of presenting the old ways and customs and how a modern man adapts t...

A father’s daughter disappears and suspense mounts when her blood his found in his car. He allows himself to hope she’s disappeared in his world where the police can help.

    I confess, I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the description, but decided to take a chance and read this book. I'm so glad I did because I was delightfully surprised! Everybody's Daughter illustrated love and forgiveness in a real and tangible way for me.Michael John Sullivan is a gifted writer who brings this story and characters to life. I was able to visualize and feel everything intensely. My emotions went up and down like a roller c...

    “Everybody’s Daughter,” by Michael John Sullivan, Fiction Studio Books, ISBN 978-193655844-5-51595, is a mystery read that took this reviewer by surprise. The story started out a little slow and soon, though it is no John Grisham book, enveloped the reviewer into the story in a heart beat. Michael Stewart is a time traveler, and thanks to a mysterious tunnel in an old church, he lands in a time where the Romans rules and Jesus was just begi...

    Enjoyed The Great Characters And Twists In This StoryThis book was an excellent continuance of the series – the suspense, characters, and twists became increasingly intriguing as the story went along. It is a time travel story, so Michael goes back and forth – from past to present either physically or mentally several times throughout the story – from Northport to Jerusalem and also with childhood memories to his life as a single Dad. He ha...
  • Abbie Riddle
    Absolutely breathtaking! Be sure to have a box of tissues ready and be ready to stay up late into the night to finish reading this book. Once you start it you will not want to put it down. There really is no good "stopping" point and the end comes too quickly.This author has masterfully pulled together a story that is really two stories in one. As you are pulled between the drama and emotion of present time and the spiritual emotions of Jesus' ti...

    "Everybody's Daughter" by Michael John Sullivan is one of my all time favorite books! In this second book of the trilogy, our hero Michael and his daughter, Elizabeth go back to Jerusalem again. Michael fell in love with a lady named Leah on his last trip there and he is still wondering how she has fared since he last saw her. in this second volume of the trilogy, both Michael and Elizabeth go back to Jerusalem but at different places in time.If ...

    Take away all the biblical stories which are not my cup of tea to begin with, I just couldn't get into it. There was just too much jumping around and you spent most of the book waiting for him to find his deceased daughter and then poof, she just happens to live. This was a B&N Friday Freebie, you get what you pay for. I can't recommend this one though unless you're into semi nonfiction pieces based on bible stories. Potential was there to be a g...
  • Marti
    Once again, Barnes & Noble asked me to review this book. I gave it two stars but made some picky comments about some grammatical errors that I think should have been picked up by decent editing. As I read it, I bemoaned the fact that my sister is not a reader, because she is more religious than I and might have enjoyed a story where a father and a daughter go time traveling from the basement of their church, through a tunnel, several times to the...

    I was riveted from the first page to the last of this moving, fascinating, and unforgettable novel. Although I didn't read Sullivan's first novel NECESSARY HEARTBREAK, I had no problem following this intriguing story along and it just made me want to go back and read the first novel, which I will. Sullivan's protagonist, Michael Stewart, is a convincing character who I was rooting for all the way. After I finished reading the novel, I could not s...

    Your love for the Lord and your family is all in your books. The detail you put into The interactions between Jesus and The people, Leah and Elizabeth, and Michael and Connie is intense I only put the book down when my eyes ate tired or if I just need to asorb everything that just happened. You are blessed and again I say blessed. Continue to lift up the Lord and He will bless your hands. Of and He told me to tell you as well you will finish this...
  • Fritz Franke
    Michael Sullivan hit a home run with Everybody's Daughter. His writing takes the reader and puts them right in the action. You get to know Michael and Elizabeth so well that you are constantly worrying about them. I can't spoil anything for the readers who are just starting the book, but you will be joyfully shocked throughout the book and in one place in particular.And if you haven't read book one of the series, Necessary Heartbreak, I highly re...
  • Melanie
    This is the 2nd in the series by Michael John Sullivan, though not necessary to read the first Necessary Heartbreak I feel it would have been helpful to me. This was a beautiful story that shifted between current time and the time of Jesus. It involved time travel and history that kept you turning the pages. I am not typically a time travel sort of reader, but this one was basic enough for the skeptics. It has got to be difficult to include Jesus...

    This book was profoundly moving . I did not realize it was the second in a three part series til I finished reading it. Now I have to get and read the first one. I have not been moved by a book like I was this one for a long time. It is the kind of book that you read that will stay in your mind and heart for a long time. It gives you much to think about . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone who loves a deep and great read. Cindy Rushford

    I enjoyed reading the second book written by my friend Michael. He took us back twice to Jerusalem-one by Elizabeth and the one he travelled through which was interesting to say he least. I often wonder if they would ever be reunited especially since Elizabeth had died while in Jerusalem and to see the anguish he was going through as the police and FBI were accusing him of killing his daughter. I am looking forward to number 3

    I thought the author did an excellent job weaving together the various time frames, bringing them together in the end...in a sense, it reminded me of "Back to the Future" - I could see it becoming a very successful film!
  • Marnie
    I didn't realize that this was a book in the series. Kind of wished I would have known ahead of time as this is the second I believe. The story was catchy, but also quite unbelievable, even for those who are quite on the religious side.

    I am a sucker for time travel stories but this was a disappointment. Written at a grade school reading level. No character development. Disjointed conversations. Abrupt and weak ending. Only reason it gets 2 stars is that I finished the book. I wish "Christian" fiction was better, but this has been my experience with all that I've read in this genre. I give up.
  • Diane
    Not the greatest writing. Relies on stilted conversation to move the story along. Plot was slow to move at the beginning but got better toward the end.
