When Through Deep Waters Reviews
Fantastic story. There are so many twists and turns throughout the story. I had a very hard time putting this book down. It would be so horrible to live through what Alicen went through. She was unable to get past the idea that it was her fault that her daughter drowned. She goes to a place where she had been happy as a child with a long time friend to try to heal. Instead of healing she seems to get worse. I love how the author works through all this pain. This was so well done. I received a co ...more
I finished this book in two days! It is definitely a page turner and I wasn't sure what was going to happen next.
This story is about Alicen (can I admit here that it took me a few pages to realize how to pronounce this as Alison - lol) and how she deals with the tragic circumstances that befall her. At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like Alicen but I think that's all part of the story - how she changes and evolves.
When she goes back to Montana, as place that holds dear memories as a chil ...more
I didn't know what to think of this book when I first started reading it and I actually put it aside and had to start reading it from the beginning when I got back to it a few weeks later. I'm glad that I started reading it again from the beginning because the story of Alicen McCaffrey is one that I liked far more than I thought I would.
Alicen seemed to have it all, until her world is shaken by a tragic event that she is almost incapable of dealing with. This broke my heart and I couldn't imagin ...more
have read the Seer series by Rachelle Dekker, and I really enjoyed the first two books, but the third one kind of fell flat for me. So when I heard Dekker wrote a new book, When Through Waters Deep, I read the synopsis and was interested to read the book. The story is lumped in the Psychological Thriller genre. Dekker does a wonderful job at diving deep into the emotions and delusions of Alicen. I believe this is the strongest part of the novel. As for the thriller aspect, I really didn't see t ...more
*I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway**
I'm not sure what to say about this book. It's taken me a bit of time to figure out exactly what I think about it, as it wasn't quite what I was expecting. However, that's not to say it wasn't good, hence the 5 star rating.
To be perfectly honest, I couldn't read a whole lot of this book in one sitting. The pain and anguish of the main character takes you to such a dark and hopeless place, that it placed a heaviness on my heart. I could really f ...more
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. ...more
You would expect nothing less than genius from Rachelle Dekker as Ted Dekker's daughter, and she performs exceptionally in "When Through Deep Waters". Rachelle proves that her imagination for the extraordinary and grasp of biblical principles do, in fact, create a masterpiece of fiction that is mesmerizing and thought-provoking.
Alicen McCaffrey has everything her mother wants for her--a rich husband, a beautiful house and a precocious daughter. Until the tragic day, when her little girl drowns, ...more
When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.
Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life includi ...more
