waters fallAbout:

Jake doesn’t remember what it means to be a champion.

Nora doesn’t know how much longer she can tread water before she goes under.

Their fairytale marriage is hurtling toward a tragic end.

Then Tristan sweeps in—all feelings and fire and freedom—and Nora is carried out to where the waters flow fast and deep. Nora knows she’s risking far more than just her heart….

When it all comes crashing down, Jake and Nora are left standing amidst the ruins of everything they’ve built together. Will they walk away, or stay and fight for their happily-ever-after?

Waters Fall is a poignant story of a marriage on the rocks. It’s the anatomy of an affair, the price of forgiveness, and the terrible beauty of grace.

My thoughts:

I’ll be honest, at first the cover gave me pause, it seemed a bit risky for a Christian book but I moved past that and read the back cover and knew this was a book I had to read.

Becky did a great job of showing what a slow fade the destruction of marriage can go under. It can just sneak up on you. You think you are just entertaining thoughts that won’t hurt anyone but temptation gives birth to sin and sin to death.

This is what happens to Nora, she stumbles across Tristan and he blossoms under the light of his gaze. She feels things she hasn’t felt in a long time. She runs the first time and her counselor’s words echo in her head. But she stops meeting with her counselor and the truth gets drowned out by the lies of the enemy.

This book was so real. I know I have felt many times that I have prayed and prayed for change but don’t see God moving. I start to question what’s He doing, why doesn’t He answer, is He even listening?

Yet, this book is full of hope and God’s redeeming love, a love only He can give.

If you’re looking for a good women’s fiction book that touches on a tough subject then I highly recommend this book.
