Having thoroughly enjoyed a different Christian series, the Ivy Malone stories by Lorena McCourtney, and considering this download was free, I gave it a try. It started out OK. The depiction of a family close-knit by their religious convictions was at first appealing if a bit extreme. As the story progressed, the most difficult part to stomach was the heroine's judgmental attitude toward everyone she dealt with, even those people whom she believed were also Christians. They just weren't believers enough for this sanctimonious twit. She was quick to take offense, acted like every man she was alone in a room with was a potential predator, and often was rude in dealing with people under the guise of her religious convictions. She acted like an immature brat.
I doubt many people in the USA can relate to the religious community she was raised in or to her extreme beliefs. You might imagine that she was part of a Hassidic Jewish community except that they wouldn't be out trying to convert everyone they met. This heroine was praying that all those "sinners" (read anyone who didn't believe what her small sect believed) out there would come to her view of Jesus. She wouldn't even attend any of the local churches so that she wouldn't get "corrupted." She told the Jewish girl she worked closely with that she would not stop trying to convert her even after the girl asked her not to try to do so. Yet the author proceeded to act like the two could work together despite that. I slogged through the book to see if eventually the heroine had any redeeming qualities which might be revealed later. She didn't.
If all you want is a book where there's no swearing and no sex, go for it. Otherwise, it's not worth the time it takes to download. Unless that is, you're really desperate for an annoying book.

Deeper Water by Robert Whitlow is book one in the Tides of Truth series. This is the first Whitlow book I read and came across it as a free kindle download via the Vessel Project.

Tammy Lynn Taylor is from a devout Christian family with some rather strict beliefs: females wear dresses and skirts below the knee, no makeup except on rare and special occasions, children must consult their parents for decisions, and the Sabbath is strictly reserved for resting. She was homeschooled until high school when she was allowed to attend the public high school and play sports while wearing very modest sports uniforms. As a second or third year law student, she is preparing for an internship of sorts.

Moses Jones lives in a shack on the Ogeechee River. When he goes fishing, he sees faces in the water. He wonders why they haunt him so and when they will pull him under with them.

Normally I don't care for a female main character, but Robert Whitlow has done an excellent job of not only creating memorable characters but also mystery and suspense. I became so emotionally wrapped up in the story that I wanted to sit down and talk to some of the characters and I cried through the last two chapters. Tammy, though in her second or third year of college, came across as much younger, but I'm sure that is due to her family's beliefs and convictions and the more I read the more I could relate. While in some ways she comes across as shy and timid, at others, especially when her convictions are on the line, she has steadfast confidence. Though I find it hard to believe that a law firm would manage to take on 3 such religious summer clerks, I am not surprised that two rather different Christian men (Zach and Vince) would find her attractive.

Moses and Tammy's paths cross when Judge Cannon assigns each summer clerk with a misdemeanor case. Moses Jones is accused of twenty-four counts of trespassing. As she researches the charges, she discovers connections between Moses Jones and one of the partners of the law firm, Joe Carpenter and an unsolved missing child case. Zach Mays, her supervising lawyer, cautions against digging any deeper than the relevant charges. Vince Colbert, a fellow summer clerk, passes along any info he stumbles across, including warning her that he has overheard the partners talking about her and her case. Tammy believes that God put her in that law firm with that case to uncover the unresolved death of a little girl from years ago and to tie up the loose ends, even if it means the end of her career and possibly her life.

This is one of the few Christian fiction books I have read that was not overly preachy except what fit each of the characters. While the main character is a young woman and two men are attracted to her, romance is kept as a shadow in the background. Whitlow's knack for mystery and suspense are fantastic--one of the best Christian mystery/suspense I have ever read. I will definitely be reading the next one in this series and will look for more books by Robert Whitlow.

The story line was marvelous, and I really cared about the characters. There was good resolution of all of the conflicts in the book, so one is left quite satisfied at the end! I could not give it five stars, though, because I was saddened by the main character being presented as somewhat "odd" due to a very conservative upbringing and very protective and isolating homeschool experience. I have homeschooled for 25 years and know that this character represents an unrealistic stereotype that many non-homeschoolers imagine of homeschoolers. While there are some people who fit this sterotype and the main character had many admirable characteristics, her isolation and extremely conservative upbringing is but it is very far from the actual "typical" homeschooler, who has lots of contact with others and can relate well to many different types of people. The main character was a lovely girl, but she definitely stood out as "different," not always in a positive way.
Olma
A good story with a strong spiritual theme. I didn't realize it was a "continued" story that encompasses two more books, so it doesn't really have an ending. Not my favorite type of reading. I prefer novels that stand alone, even if they are part of a series. The four stars are for the quality of the story--interesting characters and plot.
