Publisher's Description

On the verge of Mt. St. Helens’ historic eruption, three women must face the mountain: two to search for their missing husbands; the third, to rediscover her life…

After a local mountain becomes a deadly and imminent threat, three strikingly different women become linked in a desperate mission.

Children’s author Katherine Sommers is searching for her depressed husband, David, and their son Brian, camping together on Mt. St. Helens’ tumultuous north slope. Mellie Sedor seeks her husband, Daniel, who has taken a logging job to pay for their daughter’s chemotherapy. Fashion photographer Jen Stockton joins Cowlitz County Sheriff Frank McKenzie, himself the victim of a brutal loss, in his quest to evacuate the awakening volcano.

Jen came to the mountain in an effort to recover the peace she experienced as a child. Instead, she finds destruction and heroism, tragedy and friendship.

When Women Strive Together, They Can Face Even the Unthinkable.

Written by best-selling and award-winning author Lauraine Snelling, The Way of Women celebrates the resilience and strength of women, both individually and collectively, in the face of extraordinary crisis.

Editorial Reviews

“Two dozen years ago we watched in horror as Mount St. Helens erupted on our television screens, fearing for the safety of those who lived beneath her shadow. In The Way of Women, Lauraine Snelling takes us there in graphic, moving detail as she explores the lives of three women deeply affected by the natural disaster. Her careful research and vivid descriptions make the mountain come alive, and the unique challenges each woman faces draw us day by ash-covered day toward a satisfying end.”
–Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Thorn in My Heart

“In The Way of Women, Lauraine Snelling goes beyond her usual grand storytelling in giving us insights into landscapes, history and life. This time, through her memorable characters, Lauraine explores the explosiveness of loss taking us to the depths of our need for relationships in turbulent times. Grief and disaster can be transforming if we allow God to work in our lives. That’s one way of women I’ll take with me in a story that sings with the beauty of the northwest landscape and Lauraine’s own lovely language. ‘The creek gossiped with the rocks’ and ‘Wait — a four letter word worse than cursing’ are phrases worthy of remembering as is this fine story of God’s power to use each of us to help heal each other and restore ourselves in the process.”
– Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of A Name of Her Own

“Reminding us that love can spring forth from ashes, that life can emerge from death, Lauraine Snelling writes a gripping and powerful novel that will inspire and uplift you.”
–Lynne Hinton, author of The Last Odd Day

    I really, really loved this book. Not just the story but the style in which it was written. I have a read a number of Lauraine's books in the past and even though it is not a new book I would recommend that everyone should read this book.

    I also love the chapter's that are written from the viewpoint of the mountain. It really makes you think about what God might have been thinking when he created the earth.

    I also liked the way each chapter focused on one person at a time starting at the first chapter. A little background about each person to start with, building the story a little at a time.

    The information on the Mt. St. Helens eruption is so interesting. I thought I knew a lot about the happenings but this was so detailed I really enjoyed reading about it.

    The three women in the story are in different places in their faith and the way their characters are developed extremely well. It was so enjoyable to read about their growth in faith and with each other.

    This is a novel of tragedy faced by ladies who lose loved ones in the eruption if Mount St Helens. The sorrows of the loses of each women and how they dealt with them. There is even little paragraphs about how the Lady feels about what is going on. This is a novel about life and how it goes on after a tragedy of this nature. Ms Snelling leaves us feeling what these people are going through while they are waiting for the return of their loved ones. A GREAT READ.

    Having lived in the area at the time of Mt. St. Helen's eruption, I found this book to give a very compelling insight into the lives of those affected directly by the whole ordeal. It was easy to not put faces on those who were lost and their loved ones, but this book make it up front and personal.
