“Thirteen-year-old orphan Alice Ringwald has no memory beyond six months ago. The only life she knows is the new one she’s creating one day at a time with the loving couple who recently adopted her and gave her new hope.
That hope, however, is shattered one night when a strange man comes to her door. Her real mother is alive, he says, and begs her to return home. When Alice won’t leave with him, the man forces his way into the house and abducts her.
In a frantic manhunt the FBI pursues, but the man slips through their figures. He and Alice vanish without a trace.
So begins Water Walker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering power of forgiveness and reminds us it’s possible to live free of the hurt that keeps our souls in chains.”
Wow! This book was incredibly amazing! Water Walker is book 2 in the Outlaw Chronicles and I would suggest reading book 1 (Eyes Wide Open) first, it refers to Eyes Wide Open in more ways than 1.
Water Walker was not as suspenseful as Eyes Wide Open, but, for Christians, it has a way of causing your blood to boil, making you want to finish the book to see justice come to the “bad guy”!* As the synopsis implies, forgiveness is proven to defeat even the evilest of men.
Ted Dekker did a fantastic job of making this book so realistic and his details were great. He also brought the power of forgiveness to its max, telling in detail the peace forgiveness gives as well as self control. I can’t tell you how much I loved this book and I encourage all of my friends to read it. I also look forward to read the rest of the series.
*After, reading all the stuff about forgiveness, you probably have a pretty good idea that you will end up for forgiving the “bad guy”! LOL
