This book was amazing! The authors captured the emotions of the characters so well, and I believe their portrayal of adultery, its consequences and God's grace will bring many readers healing and a better understanding of God's forgiveness. It is very well written and I could hardly put it down. I liked it so much that I have already bought the second book in the series, and I have purchased the set as Christmas gifts for several friends.
Excellent writing and compelling story line. Honestly a 400 page book would normally overwhelm me at first sight. This however, is one you won't want to put down. Not only is there a great true to life story here, but there remains multiple opportunities for applying what you learn here to your own life or to help guide someone you know. CAN'T WAIT for the next one...
Having been an avid reader my whole life, I have enjoyed Christian fiction since I was introduced to the genre by a close friend. My #1 favorite of all times is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. However, I now have to rate Healing Stones a close 2nd, which is saying a LOT! I have read it twice already. It is a very poignant touching story. I am looking forward to more in the series.
This was a wonderful book. It is a true page turner and one you shouldn't begin too late in the day. You will not want to put it down. The authors remind us of just how gracious, merciful and good God is. I loved Dr. Crisp and Ethan. It was funny, I was on Demetria's side from the beginning. Though I did not share her experience I shared in her pain. A must read.
Words fail. Moved beyond my ability to convey. A story perfectly woven, perfectly told of the imperfect nature of us mortals and the perfect love of God. That He is obsessed with our happiness and obsessed with our redemption when we fail, our peace when we do what passes for our best - an amazing tale of God's love. Richly layered and thoughtfully textured - this book definitely belongs on the required reading list of any Christ-centered journey inward. I pray that it is.
