I was lucky enough to be chosen to receive a copy of Cynthia Ruchti's book As Waters Gone By.
I really enjoyed this book. The topic, the setting, the characters, it all drew me in from the start until the end of this book. It was a hard topic, lots of tough decisions and outcomes, but the way the author wrote about them there was always a helpful discussion around it.
I loved the setting of this book. I live in Northern MN, so I have been to Bayfield WI many times. I enjoyed reading about a book set in an area I am very familiar with.
I look forward to reading more books by Cynthia Ruchti.
About the book:
As Waters Gone By (Abingdon, May 2015)
How can a marriage survive when separated by hundreds of miles and impenetrable prison walls?
Emmalyn and Max Ross may have to endure the fight of their lives to mend the tattered fabric of their marriage. His actions ensured she could never be a mother and put him in prison, giving their relationship a court-mandated five-year time-out. On a self-imposed exile to beautiful but remote Madeline Island, one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior, Emmalyn has just a few months left to figure out if and how they can ever be a couple again.
Nudged along by the exuberant owner of the Wild Iris Inn and Café, a circle of misfit people in their small town, and a young girl who desperately needs someone to love her, Emmalyn restores an island cottage that could become a home and begins to restore her heart by learning what it means to love unconditionally. Yet even as hope begins to find a place within the cottage walls, Emmalyn still wonders if she's ready for Max's release. She may be able to rebuild a cottage, but can she rebuild a marriage?
