While most Americans know the story of how the United States won its independence, many are unaware of George Washington’s passionate assertion that God was intrinsically involved in the nation’s founding. Washington’s belief about the many signs, mercies, and favorable interventions of God during the founding of America has inspired Visibly Struck by Steve Kubicek, a mesmerizing new novel based on the true experiences of George Washington and his faith in the invisible hand of God. An inventive and engaging debut historical novel, Visibly Struck takes readers on a journey like no other.
Visibly Struck introduces protagonist Stephen “Spitz” Spitzen. Mired in grief and bitterness after losing his son and daughter-in-law in a plane crash over thirteen years ago, Spitz doubts God’s goodness. After the tragedy, Spitz retires from his successful career as a corporate executive in a multinational organization in order to raise his granddaughter, Aspen. Without his career, Spitz retreats to his books and becomes passionate about proving “his case”—disproving the notion of a loving God’s “invisible hand” and His presence and role in founding this country. When he suffers a sudden and unexpected medical crisis that leaves him in a coma, Spitz is thrust into truly extraordinary circumstances. Embarking on an unforeseen and mysterious journey that providentially opens windows into George Washington’s life—from Great Meadows to Monmouth, to Yorktown to the inauguration—Spitz sees first-hand God’s mercy, grace, and goodness at work. But will seeing lead to believing?
Only time will tell if Spitz can make a full recovery—physically and spiritually. But as Spitz fights for his life, Aspen finds her life changing in ways she could never have imagined. Without her grandfather—the man who had served as her anchor, her parents, and her everything for so long—by her side, will Aspen finally make time to allow for love? And when she chooses to confront the hard truth about the past, will she find answers—or only more questions? For Aspen and Spitz, finding answers might be as simple as taking a huge leap of faith….
Beautifully written, inspiring, and filled with charming, true-to-life characters who come alive within the novel’s pages, Visibly Struck will stay with readers long after the final page is turned. A moving story of faith, healing and the unmistakable power of God, Visibly Struck is a heartfelt tale about love, forgiveness, and redemption.
Much more than entertaining and inspiring, Visibly Struck operates on a deeper level by providing readers with rich enlightenment. Based on historical facts and meticulously researched, Visibly Struck uses its engaging premise to show readers the signs, mercies, and favorable interventions George Washington saw. Using the narrative as a vehicle for revealing little-known but significant historical facts, author Steve Kubicek delivers an innovative new novel that leads readers on an incredible, faith-strengthening personal journey. Witness the power of God’s mercies and divine interventions in Visibly Struck, a powerful and poignant novel that brilliantly blends faith, fact and fiction.
According to Orneita Burton, Associate Professor, Abilene Christian University, “Visibly Struck captures the attention and won’t let go.…a must read for anyone interested in a fact-based account intertwining the faith and history that fundamentally shapes the American Spirit.”
