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.

    " Outstanding novel. I couldn't say anymore!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/28/2014

    " This was a great sequel to Healing Stones. Steven Arterburn does a great job tackling personal issues but putting them in the form of a novel instead of a self-help book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/17/2014

    " I had never read this author, but really enjoyed it. It had mystery, thoughts on religion and recovering and handling life. It was a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica K | 1/14/2014

    " This was a book you could call Christian fiction, but the underlying spiritual message was subtle and fit well with the storyline. I really liked the characters and was satisfied with the fairly realistic ending, especially since it was a happy one without wading into that "Hollywood" perfect kind of ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley | 12/29/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. Really gave me a lot to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha | 12/26/2013

    " Loved the charactes and the humor. This is one of those books with characters whom you miss when it is over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorrie | 12/22/2013

    " I didn't like it quite as much as Healing Stones, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. The characters were intriguing, and the story line was thought provoking. I enjoyed going through the healing process--spiritually and emotionally--with Lucia, the main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 12/16/2013

    " This book was way better than I expected from these authors. It was depthy and caught my interest early on. Wonderful book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lura Hunter | 12/15/2013

    " This is a great book that goes through some of the healing that happens or should happen after childhood pain or current tragedies. This was co-written by Stephen Arterburn of "New Life Live". I really liked it and thought it was well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 12/10/2013

    " Nancy Rue's engaging prose, realistic dialogue and storytelling acumen, combined with Stephen Arterburn's knowledge of psychology and experience as a counselor, make for fiction which is difficult to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 11/18/2013

    " I actually enjoyed this book much more than I expected. I was able to identify with Lucia and liked that fact that though the book had an underlying theme of religion it never actually went over the top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raelynn | 11/3/2013

    " i really enjoyed these 2 books in the series-real characters with real problems not so easily fixed. I also enjoyed the fact that at the end of the books all the issues were not conveniently "solved" as in some Christian fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 10/23/2013

    " Pretty intense book but once I got through it I really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari | 6/20/2011

    " This book wasn't what i expected it to be. I was looking more of a book for self-improvement (not sure if that would be the right word) It had some good insights on religion and self-esteem issues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 7/12/2010

    " Wow - this was a very intriguing book. It is difficult to come to terms with all of the emotions Lucia is facing. "
