Great book by a wonderful author! Apr 9, 2007
Taking you along on a missions trip to an orphanage, Deborah Raney invites the reader to join the adventure! And when God is the Author of the adventure, you can be sure of a very good ride! I really enjoyed the book because I came to like the characters so much and can't wait for the sequal.
A well written book that is enjoyable all the way through Jul 17, 2006
The only thing I didn't like about it is that it ended. I didn't want to let these characters go. It was a wonderful read full of depth and struggles but with hope that inspires me to do more with my life. I hope there will be more books with these characters because I LOVED this book!
Enjoyable, ok Christian romance Jul 12, 2006
Over the Waters by Deborah Raney is the story of Dr. Max Jordan and Valerie Austin as they each struggle to find their way while working at an orphanage in Haiti. Much of the story is a romance, but Raney handles it in a way so that the couple's relationship is really secondary to the rest of the plot and characters. Dr. Jordan's son, Joshua, died in Haiti a year ago while working at an orphanage, so Max travels in his son's footsteps trying to find the same peace Joshua had found. Valerie is recovering from a broken engagement and uses the opportunity to focus on someone other than herself. Max's change of heart comes about rather abruptly, and the backstory of the Greene's seems a bit stretched, but overall the plot flows well and is enjoyable to read. It's an ok book. Don't rush out and buy it, but if you find it on the library shelf, bring it home for a good read.
Great Beach Read Jun 20, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Some of it was predictable but I don't care - I hoped it would end the way it did and was not the least bit disappointed. I read it in one day while on vacation and then moved on to one of her other books, "Playing by Heart."
Deb Raney is a great author.
Over the Water Apr 28, 2006
Predictable; cliche; little or no sentence length variation; a total bore that had me curling my lip at each page - sorry. This book was NOT, in my opinion, good by any stretch of the imagination.
