need faith return return The story is told from Tammy s perspective We learn a lot about her and we see the other characters developed through her eyes This means we don t always know what their

series I have not read much Christian fiction outside of Francine Rivers, but I have heard some common concerns with the lack of plot or believable characters I found this a very believable book, watching a woman who is growing in her faith and learning to stand on her own with a firm foundation laid by her parents, and a family turning to God for the strength and wisdom to let her grow I feel a little bad giving this book two stars I managed to finish it, and there were parts I genuinely liked, but overall the book has some glaring issues that make it just okay I know I will not be seeking other books by this author.Going into this, I was expecting a courtroom drama, which I m not a big fan of, but I downloaded this book for free, so I thought I d give it a shot I really was not

big fan of, but I downloaded this book for free, so I thought I d give it a shot I really was not expecting a Christian courtroom drama I can handle a few Christian books, but this one is really heavy on the religious aspect.Tami is a law student from Georgia who comes from a super conservative family Women should never show too much skin, and must always wear dresses For some reason, Tami is also a basketball player, so she can wear shorts to play the game, but they have to be specially made to cover her knees Oh, and she can wear sweat pants for her early morning jogs While fitness is important, I don t understand why this is allowed since it seems like there are certain roles and rules for women and men Anyway, before doing anything she has to pray about it And usually she also needs her parents permission though they also have to pray about it It s amazing anything ever gets decided Luckily for Tami, they approve her going off to the big city of Savannah to become a clerk for a law firm, but she seems to rub people the wrong way She makes friends with a Jewish girl, but can t promise not to try to convert her to Christianity This, in my mind, is the worst kind of Christian Why can t people believe whatever they want to Tami draws the interest of two men who also work there, creating a mild little love triangle don t worry, this doesn t really cause any tension, though I just found out that this is the first book of a trilogy, so perhaps there will betension later It s amazing that these two men also happen to be Christians, and are completely comfortable talking about their faith Lucky Tami.This book really beats you over the head with Christianity The first part especially is really preachy, which almost made me stop reading The courtroom drama aspect is completely unbelievable Tami doesn t handle herself much like a law student, let alone a lawyer, and her big case leads to an even bigger unsolved murder view spoiler Even though this is really the biggest draw in the book, this story arc fizzles out in a big way when one of the alleged conspirators reveals the truth, and praises Tami for the way she stands up to him Gag hide spoiler My biggest complaint about this book arrives at the end, when Tami is telling her mother which young man she d like to invite home for a weekendonly the reader doesn t find out So frustrated But of course, I have no interest in continuing with this series, so I ll probably never find out who Tami chooses Seriously The author couldn t have bothered wrapping up that one little plot hole This book was one big annoyance When I first discovered the contemporary Christian legal thrillers by Robert Whitlow, I made the inevitable comparisons between his stories and those of John Grisham And as the years have gone along, it s been interesting to watch the path both have taken as writers Neither is cotent to write carbon copies of the same legal thrillers over and over again and instead choose to push themselves and their audiences.Whitlow s last few books have moved out of the legal arena to some extent and focuse When I first discovered the contemporary Christian legal thrillers by Robert Whitlow, I made the inevitable comparisons between his stories and those of John Grisham And as the years have gone along, it s been interesting to watch the path both have taken as writers Neither is cotent to write carbon copies of the same legal thrillers over and over again and instead choose to push themselves and their audiences.Whitlow s last few books have moved out of the legal arena to some extent and focusedon character building Now, he brings the lessons learned there to the lessons of his early legal thriller storytelling skills together in Deeper Waters Tammy comes from a very conservative Christian home She was homeschooled until she went to the University of Georgia to study law She receives an offer for a summer internship at a prestigious Savannah lawfirm and after a lot of debate and prayer decides to take it One of the first decisions Tammy makes is to change her name s spelling to Tami, to make it looksophisticated Interestingly, Tammy chooses to lie to her mother about this when a letter comes to the house addressed to Tami and not the actual spelling of her name.With Tami, Whitlow has set up an interesting example of a person living in the world but not being of the world But in her journey, Tami is not perfect and, at times, comes across as difficult or irritating I think a lot of this is deliberately done by Whitlow to help build Tami as an authentic character And, for the most part, it works effectively in the course of the story.Tami is assigned a case where a man was arrested for tying his boat up on the piers of some of Savannah s richer homes But as she digs, Tami discovers the man needsthan just legal representation Somethingis lurking here, just below the surface Tami s decision to pursue it could cost her not only her internship but her potential future as a member of the legal profession.Meanwhile, Tami is being pursued by two of her co workers at the lawfirm One is her boss and the other is a fellow intern Both have positives and negatives and watching as Tami wavers between the two and whether she wants to date either makes for an interesting sidestory and sets up a minor cliffhanger to ensure you ll come back for the next book.Given her background, it s interesting to watch how Tami reacts to the world Whitlow s great strength is that he s able to take the Christian walk and make it feel authentic to his characters No one is drawn in shades of black and white and it s not predictable who will or won t be saved in the course of the story Whitlow instead creates characters and explores their paths Some may be won, some may stray, but they ll always be interesting to read about I ve read and own several of Robert Whitlow s books and this one had been in my to read basket for several years Shame on me for not reading it sooner Deeper Water was absolutely outstanding.Tammy Lynn is a second year law student, with very deeply held convictions about her Christian faith She gets a job offer from a very prestigious law firm in Savannah to clerk for the summer She understands that her beliefs will probably be held in scorn, but resolves to remain steadfast in her faith.Sh I ve read

book that makes the entire book worth reading
