As Waters Gone By by Cynthia Ruchti Book Review

Cynthia Ruchti pens words that flow with hope! Stories come alive as she writes her books about characters who need some strand of hope. Do you need to be reminded about Biblical hope? Are you like me and need hope? Than come join me on a journey through Cynthia Ruchti’s newest Christian fiction book “As Waters Gone By”.

As-Waters-Gone-By-pKI have never been a huge Christian fiction fan… I say have, after reading “As Waters Gone By”, I have changed my perception of Christian Fiction.  Cynthia Ruchti made a Christian fiction lover out of me.  If all Christian fiction books are as beautifully written then I must read more.  Cynthia has a way of writing that you feel as if you are a part of the story, not necessarily as a character but you are seeing her beautiful words that are seasoned with grace flowing before you and you come to feel as if you personally know each character.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll long for more.

Cynthia Ruchti is an award-winning author who has penned more than 14 books.  She is a women’s ministry speaker for events and she serves as Liaison for American Christian Fiction Writers.  I think I will best remember her as the author who introduced me to Christian Fiction and made it come alive for me.

“As Waters Gone By” shares the story of Emmalyn and her husband who is incarcerated.  Marriage with day-to-day contact is hard but in this book you’ll discover how not having your husband with you or near you makes it even harder.  5 long years of separation this marriage must endure.  You may ask how is that possible.  Remember all things are possible with God.

“As Waters Gone By” is an easy read.  Almost immediately your attention is drawn in to this intricate story of a husband and wife.  You’ll discover things that will cause you to doubt and you’ll meet people who you’ll fall in love with.  I don’t want to give too much away about this story, but I will be reading this book again.  I give it five stars our five stars.

So if you love Christian Fiction or this would be your first book, grab a copy today!  The real life struggles of the characters in this book helps you find hope in a world that is not very hopeful without Jesus Christ.  Revisit marriage in a new light and realize that God has a plan.
