When life seems to conspire against you, how do you find the courage to dive into Healing Waters ?

When Lucia Coffey looks at her reflection, she sees fat and failure. When she looks at her sister Sonia, she sees svelte and success. When she looks at God, she sees that divine love can't possibly be doled out equally. All her life, Lucia has coped by throwing herself into taking care of those who seem more worthy of God's goods, and feeding the dreams she has buried alive.

But when tragedy strikes Lucia's family, she meets Sullivan Crisp--a decidedly offbeat psychologist who is trying to cope with his own shattered past. They form an alliance to try to hold her family together and, in the process, both tentatively dip their toes into the waters of healing. Step by faltering step they wade in, forging an unlikely community and digging deep for the courage to face a lurking danger that could pull them under . . . or remind them what it's like to dance on the waves.

I enjoyed the characters for the most part though I didn't like the whiny tone of the lead character which pervaded at least half of the book - I couldn't relate to it. The emotional aspect wasn't delineated as much as I had hoped for or expected -- and I felt the water was shallow and felt the strings of the puppet master (the writer) too much -- making it feel more contrived than real.

This book is Christan Fiction and I found it very inspirational.
