Item description for Still Waters by Patricia Haley...
Poignant and memorable, bestselling author Patricia Haley's latest novel is an unforgettable story about a once-loving husband who has lost his way . . . and his spiritual wife who prays she can keep her marriage intact. Greg and Laurie Wright are perched at the edge of an all-out crisis -- and their only salvation is the strength of their faith.
When Laurie married Greg, she was certain they would live happily ever after. Greg was charming, loving, and everything Laurie thought she'd ever need. Now twelve years have passed -- and Laurie and Greg have six sons to show for it. Supporting such a large family is tough on Greg's graphic designer salary, but the Wrights made do -- until the stress of living so close to the brink takes its toll. Laurie doesn't know how much longer she can cope with Greg's moods -- or even if she wants to try.
Overworked and underpaid, Greg is itching to reach beyond his dead-end job and give Laurie and the boys everything they deserve. But he knows he can't thrive at work when he and Laurie barely talk anymore. When Laurie gets a job to help make ends meet, Greg feels like he's losing her forever. All Greg wants is for Laurie to love him the way she once did. But when things go from bad to worse, Laurie and Greg's marriage will be tested as it's never been tested before. The crossroads they face will be one with many choices. But will it lead each of them down different roads forever?

A wonderful story.... Jul 17, 2008
I had saw this book on the shelf for at least two months I kept picking it up and putting it down whenever I saw it. Finally I bought it and OMG!!!!!!! from chapter 1 I was drawn in. I was blown away. I was rooting for greg to do right by his family yet angry at him for not fully explaining his depressed feelings about work and his father's deplorable treatment of him to Laurie. I was just as disappointed in Laurie when she failed to realize her internet romance with John was really a emotional affair and then of course letting her faith dip so dramatically. But I was glad the Wright family overcame the bumps and bruises I was cheering and jeering laughing and crying. Ms Haley is a great writer this is my first book I've read by her but it won't be my last. This story proves that with faith in god, love, strength and heart you can make it through if you belive.
Interesting Jan 26, 2007
I found the description of this book interesting, and decided to purchase it. Initially, it held my interest, but the story was slow after the fourth chapter. It did not hold my interest, and I read the book just to complete it. The characters were shallow, and the end was predictable.
STILL WATERS Sep 9, 2006
STILL WATERS was a great book! I thought it really showed what goes on in a marriage,that it is not always a bed of roses! The way PATRICIA HALEY, got to the heart of the marriage problems that so many marriages today face, and have been for so many years. This book was really helpful to me, and so many others to! Big ups to PATRICIA HALEY! GOD BLESS!
A good friend Mar 22, 2006
Laurie had me all the way up until she lied to her husband and then turned around and told him the truth. Girl, if you are going to lie keep up with it. She was tring to lose her husband. She mad so many mistakes. I wanted to jump in the book and give her a woman to woman talk. Sometimes you have to let the worst come out to get the best. YESHUA/JESUS came when eveything was in complete chaos. I love this story. It gave me a chance to see how other women would handle a tight situation. She kept me from making the same mistake. I hope all women that read this book feel the same as I do. Eventhough she didn't go through with the meeting, she still was cheating on her husband. In GOD'S eyes, anyone that is not the one HE assign you to is cheating. In love you'll find a lot of hurt, but also the hurt has to be accompanied with joy (when you are in CHRIST). Love is a whole lot of hurt, but in the end is a whole lot of fun. Laurie went through what all women is CHRIST go through. It is call FAITH. When the going is gone, GOD is on.
Great Book Feb 24, 2006
Patricia Haley is one of my favorite authors. After reading "No Regrets", I had to find everything that she wrote. She writes about real issues that plagues the Christians of today! I've recommended her books to several of my friends and their lives have been touched also. This book once again shows how "there is nothing that is too hard for God to handle". He can come in and change a thing just like that. If you are looking for a great book that is not only a good read, but perhaps will touch your life, this is the book to read. You will not be dissappointed.
