Revell Review- Where Rivers Part By Kellie Coates Gilbert

Morning everyone!! It's Wednesday!! That means youth group, fellowship, & 1st John tonight and I can't wait!! Unfortunately, I have a ten page paper to work on before youth group, fellowship, and 1st John but I'll get there. In a year. :p

I do have reviewing to do though so I can hang out with y'all some too!!

*About the Author*

I barely remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand. My tiny hometown of Carey, Idaho had no library, no bookstore. The bi-weekly bookmobile provided the only avenue to books . . . that, and my Gram, who spent a lot of her Social Security checks on books for her granddaughter with an insatiable appetite for stories.
I grew up on a sheep ranch in southern Idaho, a business my family had been in for generations, never dreaming I’d ever see my own name on a novel. I left home to attend Boise State University and spent most of my adult years pursuing a sensible legal career, raising two boys, and learning to be happily married.
But God heard the quiet prayers of a woman who dared to dream big and ask her Lord for the outrageous. In early 2011, I signed my first book contract. Today, I am living my fantasy. I live in Dallas with my husband. I work from home, writing novels. Often by the pool.
Can life get any better?
*Book Description*

Where Rivers Part is the fictional story of Dr. Juliet Ryan. Juliet works hard in the corporate world, making sure of safe drinking water for millions. Once with dreams of working side by side with her father, that has become impossible when her father cheated on her dear mother. When Juliet's mother comes home one day to say she has "been born again" Juliet and her father are confused and somewhat angry. After her mother's passing, Juliet finds herself wondering of the God her mother fondly talked. Could that same God care about Juliet? About her father? Will she ever learn to forgive...and to trust?

*What I liked*

This book was really heart wrenching...definitely recommend a box of tissues for this one!! I loved the issues of salvation weaved throughout the story. As someone who has grown up my whole life knowing who God is and that He is for me, it was really special to read about someone else's journey. Someone not as lucky as me to have known all this time of a loving Heavenly Father. I also loved the cover on this as well as the unique story line! Beautiful book!

*What I didn't like*

It's not that I didn't like this book. I did, I'm just used to my sappy, "love books" as my sister likes to call them. If you are looking for a sweet romance, save this one for later when you're looking for something much deeper, with maybe a little more meaning. Truly a special book but nothing romantic about it!

*My Rating*

I give Where Rivers Part...

4 stars!!

*My overall opinion*

Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert is a heart warming novel on salvation, trust, and forgiveness. A beautiful book to add to any bookshelf!
