Healing Waters by Nancy Rue and Steve Arterburn
Book Review by Kira Brant
I just finished this book, and I must say that it was wonderful. This story is about tragedy, pain, suffering, loss, redemption, forgiveness, faith, and learning to love yourself.
Though this is a Sullivan Crisp Novel, I feel the main character is Lucia and her struggles. Lucia is like many women in this world. She feels too fat, hates the way she looks, and struggles with comparing herself to everyone else. But, she is also an intelligent and strong woman who learns to know herself. It is a long journey though.
The book begins with tragedy and how a family learns to deal with it. How they learn to turn to God and trust in their faith. And how friendships are made, mended, and kept. I loved learning about Lucia. There is a large transformation in her, and all of the characters from the begining to the end.
Healing Waters also deals with how God is ALWAYS there with us. God NEVER abandons us. He loves us (no matter what we look like) and wants us to lean on him and TRUST in him. Each character deals with this throughout the entire book. Some figure it out, some don't.
This is the second book in a series about Sullivan Crisp. The first book is Healing Stones. The next book in the series, Healing Sands, will be released in December of this year.
