When Through Deep Waters

Published: July 3rd 2018

RATING: ★★★★☆

4 out of 5 stars


Alicen McCaffrey finally has the life her mother always dreamed for her: beautiful home in Santa Monica, successful husband, adorable daughter. Then tragedy blows her carefully assembled facade to pieces. Worse yet–Alicen feels solely responsible. At rock bottom, she decides to accompany a childhood friend back to Red Lodge, Montana, where they spent summers together as kids.

The peaceful mountain landscape, accented with lush forests and small-town charm, brings back happy memories of time spent with her beloved, eccentric Grandma Josephine. Alicen begins to hope that perhaps things could be different here. Perhaps the oppressive guilt will lift–if only for a moment.

But when Alicen starts hearing voices and seeing mysterious figures near the river in the woods, she begins to fear she’s completely lost her sanity, as it’s rumored her grandmother did. Or might there be more to Red Lodge than meets the eye? Could the voices and visions be real–and her only means of finding the healing she so desperately needs? Or will they prove to be her final undoing?

MY REVIEW OF When Through Deep Waters:  

This book had a theme of mental health and spiritual warefare. The combination of the two throughout the book made for an interesting story.

It was unlike any book that I have ever read before.

Before I began reading this book, another blogger told me the following, “This book was definitely cerebral (so much going on in the heads of the characters)” and it is so true. It is hard to explain until you read it and then you understand.

This book definitely had my attention throughout the entirety.

I loved the themes of forgiveness and hope that comes from the Lord.

Although this book is considered Christian Fiction, you don’t really know the theme or motive behind it until you get to the end.

The book is well written with well-rounded characters who had problems and shadows.

I loved some of the double meanings in this book.

If you enjoy reading Christian Fiction with some mystery than this book is for you! Even if you don’t enjoy reading Christian Fiction, I would still recommend this book for you because it will definitely take you on a journey!

Thank you to Tyndale Publishers for sending me a copy of this book for review!

Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
