Reviews - What do customers think about Bitter Water?
Bitter Water is a sweet read! Jan 31, 2006
I recently read this book, in one day, as a matter of fact. I was so drawn into the story that I didn't want to put it down. The descriptions were enough to "see" the places and characters, yet not overly done. The author took a story that involved many ordinary aspects of life - growing up, finding friendships, employment, housing and death, and wove them into an uplifting and pleasant story. I would recommend this book to any woman , especially one who is striving to be the best she can be, even after enduring a painful upbringing.
Great Novel Set in Central Illinois Jan 15, 2006
I really loved this book. The characters are believable and easy to identify with. I could barely put the book down once I started reading. This book is a must have.
Uplifting and Enjoyable Jan 15, 2006
I truly enjoyed this trip to Small Town, USA. I was able to walk the streets and see the sights as Mara did. I experienced her pain and joy as she sought answers with a forgiving spirit. The author was able to draw me into the character in a way that was truly inspiring and uplifting, while also allowing the Holy Spirit to convict me for my unforgiveness.
Gently Inspiring Jan 4, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed journeying with Mara back to her roots. I found inspiration in her ability to stay true to herself despite having to face the pain of her father's rejection all over again. Smith's book is warmly written, gently riveting, and an inspiring reminder of just how much courage and ability to persevere through "bitter waters" can come from being rooted in faith, especially a faith in God that has been honed by those same bitter waters.
