As Waters Gone By Review Part 2!!!!!!!

As Waters Gone By by Cynthia Ruchti

Book Description:
As Waters Gone By (Abingdon, May 2015)

How can a marriage survive when separated by hundreds of miles and impenetrable prison walls?

Emmalyn and Max Ross may have to endure the fight of their lives to mend the tattered fabric of their marriage. His actions ensured she could never be a mother and put him in prison, giving their relationship a court-mandated five-year time-out. On a self-imposed exile to beautiful but remote Madeline Island, one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior, Emmalyn has just a few months left to figure out if and how they can ever be a couple again.

Nudged along by the exuberant owner of the Wild Iris Inn and Café, a circle of misfit people in their small town, and a young girl who desperately needs someone to love her, Emmalyn restores an island cottage that could become a home and begins to restore her heart by learning what it means to love unconditionally. Yet even as hope begins to find a place within the cottage walls, Emmalyn still wonders if she's ready for Max's release. She may be able to rebuild a cottage, but can she rebuild a marriage?

My Opinion: For Part 1 click here
What a truly great story about healing and hope!  Twists emerge as the story progresses and changes keep coming.  I love how Emmalyn's character grows throughout from the trials she faces and how she becomes more rooted in her Faith!  The Inn owner is still me favoritest character in the book! ;)  She is AWESOME!!!!!!!  But many other characters found a place in my heart as well!  I was so happy with the ending and yet I didn't want it to end!  Cynthia expresses beautifully how God works in mysterious ways!  I can't wait to read more of her work, and I LOVE how she blends humor throughout so it softens and balances the deep things going on in the lives of these characters!  I highly recommend this deeply, emotionally touching, quirky, and, at times, hilarious read!

Songs: "He Knows" by Jeremy Camp, "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx, "Hurricane" by Natalie Grant, "Something Beautiful" by Steven Curtis Chapman, and "Glory" by Phil Wickham
