Over the Waters is one of those rare books that is good enough to read twice. The emotion is deep,the romance is beatiful, and the selfless love of the characters is admirable. Neither main character started out giving of themselves with full abandon to God and His service, but as they grow in Him and listen to His voice they are pulled by His love in that direction. I adore love stories written by Deb Raney and this is no exception. In fact, it's one of my favorites. What thrills me most, however, about the re-release of this book, is that the epilogue includes some yummy kisses. Yahoo! What a fabulous way to end a beautiful romance story. If you haven't experienced the emotional and spiritual rush from reading the first release of Over the Waters, then you MUST check out this version (the mass market paperback) with the brand new epilogue!

Another keeper for my library! Deborah Raney's characters are real with strengths and flaws with which you can identify. She weaves a story that draws the reader in and doesn't you let go until you finish the last page. I'm wondering if there will be a sequel so we can find out if little Birdie got his miracle.

Author Deborah Raney has done it again, giving us a tale of heart-stirring fiction at its best. 'Over the Waters' takes us on a journey to the island of Haiti where we are confronted with poverty and orphaned children. But the people who work at Hope House see beyond the poverty to the people. They offer hope to dozens of children and hold to a different view of life. Dr. Max Jordan encounters that view on a trip to visit the place his son called home. There he meets Valerie Austin who is looking for her own place to belong. But Valerie has something Max can only begin to grasp. The man who has it all, discovers he really has nothing ¿ in the things that truly matter. When he comes to the end of himself, will he find the answers he seeks? This is author, Deborah Raney¿s, tenth novel. Each one of Deb¿s books offers a compelling look at difficult issues, blanketed in a solution of hope. I have spotlighted Deb on my website, which is my name jilleileensmith. If it¿s not near the top of the page, look for ¿Spotlight on¿¿ dated November 18, 2005 in the headings. Want to read more about the woman behind the story? Then come take a look.

A sought-after a plastic surgeon travels to Haiti to try to make sense of his son¿s death. A jilted woman¿s search for meaning to her empty existence takes her to a Haitian Christian orphanage. Their journeys coincide in a heart-touching tale of longing and fulfillment, and of God¿s love in action. Ms. Raney has once again taken me to a world I¿ve never visited and made it real. I highly recommend it.

.Max Jordan accuses his son, Dr. Joshua Jordan, of wasting his education by choosing to practice medicine in Haiti instead of the more lucrative USA. But, Joshua does more than practice medicine in Haiti. He serves with the joy and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is at peace, encouraged, and in love with fellow missionary minded nurse, Samantha. Josh's sudden death is felt from Haiti to Chicago. Samantha is devastated at the loss of her friend and love, but she is able to take down his last thoughts and words. Josh's dad, Dr. Max is incredulous at the news of his son's death. When he can't get over the anger, he ventures over to where his son was last a live. When he's there he meets American volunteer Valerie Austin who has come to Haiti to work in the orphanage after her wedding and honeymoon are cancelled. Max's anger is replaced by awe for those who choose to work in such dangerous circumstances. But, it's the faith of his deceased son, and that of Valerie, that intrigues him. When it's time for Max to return to Chicago he carries a piece of Valerie in his heart. Will the two ever release a true love? But most important will Max realize where the true riches of life and after-life really are? I was a little disappointed at the beginning of the story because one of Ms. Raney's recent novels starts out with a sort of same incident. But, I quickly got over that disappointment, by the compelling story that drew me into the books story. And, the characters stayed with me well after I read the final page.
