As Waters Gone By Book Review

As Waters Gone By by Cynthia Ruchticame into my email as a new book that I had a chance to review through the publisher.  I signed up to read this book because I just liked the cover.  Is there a silly reason to want to read the book?  I guess that means that the person who did the cover art should get a lot of credit.  Do you like the cover on the book?  It really brings up the idea of a small cabin that seemed really interesting to me and the book was about interesting sounding characters so what could be bad about that.  Nothing except my use of tissues!!  This book should come with a box of tissues attached to it because it really pulled on my heart strings.  I hope that you enjoy not only the cover art but the book itself like I did!

Emmalyn Ross has only a few months left to figure out if she and her husband, Max, can ever be a couple again. In prison for actions that ensured his wife could never be a mother, Max is now scheduled for release, and Emmalyn wonders how she can let him back into her life after all he’s put her through. During his five-year incarceration, Emmalyn moved to the beautiful, but remote Madeline Island in Lake Superior because she can't afford their house anymore. With the help of a circle of misfit town residents, including the exuberant owner of the Wild Iris Inn and CafĂ©, Emmalyn begins to restore her heart while refurbishing her very own island cottage. She learns what it means to love unconditionally and finds that her dream of a house and a home filled with God’s love might become a reality, but only if she and Max can find a way to rebuild their marriage…and win the fight of their lives in the process.

I loved this book.  I can't say enough about the characters but you really feel like you are in the middle of this book and want to jump up to help every time that they needed anything.  The descriptions of the foods will make you want to make these wonderful tasty comfort foods and the description of the surroundings will make you want to take a trip to this remote island.  I don't know why I have always wanted to live on such a small island but the thought has always been appealing!! This book will make you feel like part of this fun little community that pulls together in times of trouble.  Emmalyn, M for short, has gone through her life doing as she thought she should do but coming to this town makes her grow up and realize that there are other things that can make you happy and you need to open your life up to let them happen.  I hope that you check out this inspirational book and find out for yourself.  I know that you will want to run out and get the book (or come borrow it from me).  The even better news is that they sent me a second book from the same author that I get to read too!  You will see the review soon.
