Feel Good Read Aug 12, 2008
Martinusen has successfully spun the strands of the lives of three different women into a seamless story that leaves the reader wanting to know more about these characters. Short chapters make this an easy read for the busy who have only snatches of time. Not great literature, but definitely worth the time spent.
The Salt Garden Jul 30, 2007
I am a book addict that is always looking for new authors whose work speaks to me in some form. What a delightful discovery to find this work by Cindy Martinusen. It is one of the most beautifully written stories I have come across in a long, long time. The character development is also such that I was able to imagine myself in the shoes of each person the story revolved around. I loved the mystery, the thoughtfulness, and the manner in which the author brought three very distinct lives together. A simply amazing read that I appreciate even more for the interwoven crises of faith each person had to confront. We all have to work out our faith, and this gives the story an authenticity that I have not found in some other Christian novels. I simply did not want it to end, and am excited to share it with others.
Wonderful Read Jul 11, 2006
This was a terrific read. I randomly picked it up right before my local library closed one evening. This is the first time in a very long time that I wished the book went on--I wanted to keep on reading it and I was sorry when I finished it.
I love how it ties the land to the people, how each of the women characters are drawn to the sea and connected to the land. Its so nice to have an uncomplicated storyline that shows people who gather their strength from God. This is the kind of story that connects to Christians and encourages them in their walk. Its the kind of story I would like to write
Amazing Novel, Incredible Writer! Jun 20, 2005
I am a librarian and have read several Christian fiction authors since Janette Oke came on the scene. I am now incredibly fussy about how I spend my spare time, and will only read the very best writers with the most thought-provoking ideas. Favorite authors include George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, and T. Davis Bunn. Cindy is now on that list, too. She is intelligent, insightful, and shows the true character of the Lord in her writing. Thank you, Cindy, and keep it up!
Gentle Intrigue, whisper of the soul Mar 25, 2005
This is a beautifully written story full of deep places and sprinkled with light mystery. Set on the West coast the novel weaves together the lives of three women around a lost story hidden in the depths of the sea. The women all have nuggets of truth to share with the hungry reader: Claire, a young writer, passionate, questioning, and growing; Sophia, an aging reclusive novelist, afraid yet stretching, wise yet guarded, real yet spiritual; and Josephine, a woman long dead whose journal touches on the mystery of the sunken ship and the mystery of God. I'm not sure I can explain how this book affected me. At one level it's a gentle story with a touch of intrigue. At another level it is a whisper of the soul. I found myself wishing for a highlighter as little phrases caught my attention and begged to be reread. I found myself thinking about such things as grace, prayer, the giving of self to something greater, and the pursuit of our souls, our passions and our God. These were the places my heart went as Cindy's beautiful writing style took me on the journey into the lives of her characters. I think I swam for a while, venturing into the depths. If you read the book, you'll understand that statement.
