When Through Deep Waters Reviews
I was excited to read this book since I love Ted Dekker's books. But this was very disappointing :(
As someone who was raised Pentecostal, there were many friends of other denominations that thought we were a little whacky. Some went so far as to say speaking in tongues is a sign of demon possession. So to find a book where supposed spiritual insight is confused with mental illness was a premise that I found disturbing.
Some of my problem with the story came from the very beginning when the mothe ...more
A departure from Rachelle Dekker’s dystopian trilogy, When Through Deep Waters is just as engaging.
Much of this book takes place in the minds of a couple characters. Dekker delves into the difficult topics of grief and mental illness. There is definitely a little suspense going on in the book but it isn’t the main fabric of this tale.
Alicen is struggling after a tragedy shatters her ideal life. In order to cope, she travels with Louise (Lou), her childhood friend, to Red Lodge, Montana. The smal ...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
“When Through Deep Waters” by Rachelle Dekker is a captivating read! I was really impressed with her writing style with this book. She definitely has inherited the gift to write from her father, Ted Dekker.
It is hard for me to classify this book in one genre. I saw psychological suspense along with fantasy. I also loved how she wove so much of the gospel message and the true nature of God into this book. I think when an author can take a fiction book and weave the gospel message throughout the b ...more
This is the first book by Rachelle Dekker that I have read. The story unfolds as Alicen who leads the perfect life suffers an unmentionable tragedy. She has no where to turn, so she goes to see an old friend who takes her under her wing and tries to get Alicen some help. The depression and the mourning Alicen feels is so accurately portrayed in the book, that you can't help but get caught up in her story. Throughout the book we see Alicen go through many emotions. Her experiences are ones that s ...more
I liked and enjoyed Rachelle's last series, but this one is definitely more my speed! Can't wait!
When Through Deep Waters is one of those books that I hesitated picking up to read. I assumed it would probably not be a book for me. I do not normally read in this genre. However, I quickly changed my mind as soon as I read Chapter One. I am so glad I gave it a chance. I loved this book. Alicen endures so much tragedy, heart break and pain. This is one of those books that many can relate to. As soon as I finished it, I started recommending it to my friends.
I highly highly recommed When Through ...more
Alicen, the main character of this book, appeared to have a life that many people dream of when it all comes crashing but it all dissolves pretty quickly after a tragic event. This book takes us on her journey to wholeness after devastating losses. I enjoyed seeing that a deep friendship endured and that an old friend stayed by her side and had her best interest at heart even in the midst of adversity with her own family and those who were supposed to be helping her. Throughout the book there wa ...more
