Like father, like daughter–Dekker proves her writing genius

When Through Deep WatersYou would expect nothing less than genius from Rachelle Dekker as Ted Dekker’s daughter, and she performs exceptionally in “When Through Deep Waters”.  Rachelle proves that her imagination for the extraordinary and grasp of biblical principles do, in fact, create a masterpiece of fiction that is mesmerizing and thought-provoking.

Alicen McCaffrey has everything her mother wants for her–a rich husband, a beautiful house and a precocious daughter. Until the tragic day, when her little girl drowns, and she blames herself.  In her grief, she travels with a childhood friend back to the town where they spent their summers as children.  As she starts hearing voices and seeing people no one else can see, Alicen wonders if she will ever recover or lose her sanity altogether.

Rachelle taps into all of our emotions when dealing with Alicen’s story–sorrow, grief, anger, frustration–it’s like you are there experiencing everything as a witness to Alicen’s slow journey to either healing or insanity.

Don’t let the summer go by without reading Rachelle Dekker’s masterpiece.  May her next venture be as extraordinary as this one.
