Excellent book about how a secret can come out even though you think it is so deeply hidden that no one will never know. The Evans family life seemed perfect until fast forward eight years later when that secret shows up on your doorstep in the form of a lost little boy who's mother death brings him to meet his dad for the first time. Can they Evans family heal and forgive? Read Oceans Apart to see.
Up to Karen Kingsbury's standards. One of her best. Keeps you guessing about the outcome. Written with passion and emotion. I found myself crying at times and angry with Connor's wife at other times over her treatment of Connor's son. Well worth reading.
This is a story with four main sets of characters: a man, a wife, another woman, and some children. The man is a husband and father, who lives oceans apart from the truth; and therefore, he lives oceans apart from his loved ones. It's also a story of a betrayed wife who experientially learns that "love doesn't begin until you forgive." It's also a story of children who get reconciled to their father.
Oceans Apart haled my attention from the first page. I have already past the book along to my granddaughter, I know she will enjoy it as much as I did. I am looking forward to more books about Max and his new family. This book talks about real life stores in families, and how there is hope through our trials.
I like the way Karen Kingsbury brings God, faith, family, and love together in her books. I am looking forward to reading many more books by Karen Kingsbury in the future.
