As water gone by ~ Cynthia Ruchti

This is a book about hope, grace, forgiveness and so much more.  Based on the bible verse Job 11:16, you will understand the title of the book.  Emmalyn moves to Madeline Island to work on herself and what GOD really has in store for her life. Her husband is in jail and had said some terrible things to her about their lives together.  The island life gives Emmalyn hope for a future... a happy future, as she is forced to think about her feelings. 

The story is one that will get you emotionally involved to make you ask yourself what would you do?  Would you be able to have forgiveness and move on to what GOD really wants you to do?  There are many different characters in the book that makes you want to know all of their stories.

I would recommend this book to all those that want a story with a deep meaning and to make you think.  It would be a great book club book as it does have discussion questions in the back.
