Zack Dylan made a promise to God and his college sweetheart as he left his family's horse farm in Kentucky to compete on the popular reality television show Fifteen Minutes: If he makes it, the fame won't change him.
Overnight, Zack is the nation's most popular contestant, a country singer with the looks and voice of a young Elvis. As his star rises, Zack is asked to compromise and quiet his beliefs, and also something more. Something Zack could never have imagined. Just as America is falling in love with Zack, just as he's on the verge of winning it all, his choices lead him to the brink of personal disaster.
At the same time, Reese Weatherly, a therapeutic horse instructor, is no longer sure about her relationship with Zack, or the wedding they had dreamed about. While Zack advances from one round of the competition to the next, an offer comes to Reese- one that will take her to a home halfway around the world.
Then Chandra Olson- reigning diva pop star and one of the Fifteen Minutes judges- intervenes. Chandra has suffered so much public pain and private agony since her days as a Fifteen Minutes contestant. Now she wants just one thing: meaning.
Can Chandra’s private losses help Zack find his way, or will his fifteen minutes of fame cause him to lose the life he once loved?
I just finished Fifteen Minutes by Karen Kingsbury (the book that goes to the info at the top), and I have to say, it is now on my list of some of the best books I’ve ever read. Of course, I don’t have an actual list, but if I did, it would be quite long, but Fifteen Minutes would definitely be on that list.
I’m not trying to be a commercial; this book was seriously really good. I would recommend it a thousand times over. I love to read Inspirational and Christian fiction, mainly romances, but I also like a good book that makes you realize what’s going on in this world. And I guarantee, if you like any of those things, you will enjoy Fifteen Minutes.
I would rather tell you all about the book rather than just rave about how you should read it, but that would spoil it, and then you wouldn’t need to read it. So, my point is, go read it! Let me know what you think. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
All credit for the above synopsis and the wonderful book goes to Karen Kingsbury
