Still Treading Water, But Getting There Sep 25, 2008
It isn't always easy trying to be the top dog. Whitlow has written his share of amazing stories, and they finally put "The List" on the big screen. And I certainly have my favorite reads of his, and this wasn't one of them. Neither was "Mountain Top," but I do think that this was a little better! Whitlow puts together a story that combines nerve, along with enough sensitivity to get the reader through the whole thing.
We get the chance to meet Tami Taylor in this particular journey. She has a home-schooled education, and she has the faith of her mama and daddy. And when the opportunity arises for her to spend a summer in a Georgia firm, she has her parents' approval. And before she knows it, the case she is about to try is questionable. And so is the integrity of one or more of the co-owners of this firm. How will her faith play into this, and will she be strong enough to stand up for what is right?
Whitlow shows why he's been up there since book one. But if you ask me, he's still treading a little bit of water here and there. But he's still worth reading. He knows how to keep a reader's attention, and make them want more good stories from the south. This was a good read, and I'm still waiting for one of his great reads!
Afraid of sunlight Sep 1, 2008
As usual Robert Withlow delivers a great read. The haunting constraints the family lives by in world vision is very well described. Although the book does not demand this is the way to live, it gives the main character a firm base to believe. I hope in next episoded she will learn to open up a little for the people around her without constantly defending herself, and stop hiding decisions from her parents just to avoid discussion.
Awesome As Expected Aug 27, 2008
Robert Whitlow has yet to disappoint. I was a little surprised at the ending because our culture conditions us to expect the worst outcome but sometimes by the grace of God, justice, mercy and right wins. I can't wait for the next Tides of Truth novel.
Fast Service Aug 22, 2008
I was looking for this book in my regular book club and was not able to get it. So I was so tickled when I took a chance and found it at this site.com. Thank you so much and for the quick service as I got the book in only a few days. Robert Whitlow is one of my favorite authors and I was dying to read his newest book.
A book that will encourage readers toward self-reflection of society's influence on their own spiritual journey. Jul 14, 2008
Christy Award-winning author and attorney Robert Whitlow combines his professional expertise, Bible knowledge and strong faith to deliver DEEPER WATER, a legal drama set in the South. Like his character's aluminum johnboat, the storyline drifts slowly along for the first half as the scene is set and characters and complex relationships develop. Though this portion of the book lacks any page-turning action, it serves to bring us into the sharp mind and faithful heart of Tammy Lynn Taylor, a law student whose family ties and convictions will navigate her through the challenges of a summer internship at a prominent Savannah law firm.
In the prologue, we meet Moses Jones, a southern black man whose home is a piecemeal wooden shack on the Little Ogeechee River. His life is little more than a routine of collecting cans from town during the day and fishing by night. For all the world, Moses anonymously leads his simple life without a care. Below the surface, however, he conceals a secret that weighs heavy on his heart --- a secret that sometimes brings "faces" to the surface of the river's black water. When Moses is arrested for tying his johnboat to private docks at night, his case is put in the hands of a sweet, intelligent legal intern.
Tammy seeks the Lord's guidance in everything and follows through by opening her heart to His responses. As she traverses the murky waters of her profession, Tammy glides into Moses Jones and quickly uncovers a scenario far more sinister than a poor old man illegally tying his battered boat to people's docks. She wonders about his "faces in the water" and questions whether or not he may have put them there.
Further research leads Tammy to an unexpected source: the elderly woman with whom she is living for the summer. As more and more clues are revealed, Tammy is sure that the senior partners of her law firm are tied to her client in a cold case involving the murder of a young girl. Her friendships with three co-workers are complex, and doubts arise as to whom she can trust. Answered prayers and an interesting twist set the record straight as Whitlow ties it up in a neat little bundle, still leaving the readers to ponder a relational question.
Tammy's deep-rooted conviction is evident in every move and conversation, whether or not it leads to stares, persecution or simply awkward moments. Unwavering in her faith and as obedient to her parents as she is to God's laws, Tammy is almost unbelievable as a character. That said, I have to add that she is inspirational as well, and may lead readers to pause now and then for some self-reflection of society's influence on their own spiritual journeys.
