This book is based on the relationships between puritan raised Tami and her co-workers at her summer clerk position in a Savanah Law Firm. The mix of values is covered with a Jewish girl, a christian lawyer, a christian clerk, and other characters with no or little belief in God. The intrigue of the law cases, the relationships, and the spiritual journey of characters is very fascinating and I had a hard time putting the book down. I have now started reading the second book in the series and it seems to be just as good a read so far.
This is book one (copyright 2008) in the "Tides of Truth" series, which follow a young law student as she works as a summer intern for a prestigious law firm in Savannah, GA. "Deeper Water" is my first book of Robert Whitlow's to read. I chose it because the description on the back of the book piqued my interest: "Just of the murky waters of Savannah's shoreline, a young law student is under fire as she tries her first case at a prominent and establishes law firm. A complex mix of betrayal and deception quickly weaves its way through the case and her life, as she uncovers dark and confusing secrets about the man she's defending - and the senior partners of the firm. How deep will the conspiracy run? Will she have to abandon her true self to fulfill a higher calling? And how far will sh have to go to discover the truth behind a tragic cold case?"I'm pleased to say I was not disappointed in the book. The author chose to write the book through the eyes of the primary character, Tammy "Tami" Taylor. Tammy was raised in the Appalachian Mountains and home-schooled by her mother until high school. Tami is a brilliant student, good athlete, & faithful to God and her family. She has strong convictions regarding her faith, respects the opinion of her parents and cares deeply about the feelings of others. During the course of this story, Tami finds that her faith, her integrity, and the trust in her co-workers are tested in ways she never experienced or expected. Robert Whitlow's style of writing, his description of the scenes & characters, kept me interested in the story, and trying to figure it out, to the end. I was left with a desire to continue reading about Tami, to see where Mr. Whitlow would take her next. The second book in the series, "Higher Hope" has been added to my list of desired books. For anyone interested in reading well written Christian Mystery, I highly recommend this book.
I read this some time ago, lost my copy and had to buy another one. My wife has become converted to Christian fiction and I predict that she will love this series. I still have to read the last one myself. Give the first two 5 stars.
I have liked everything I have read by Robert Whitlow. The Tides of Truth series have been one of my favorites. Once I started this book, it was hard to leave it alone until I got to the beautful finish.
