While Rachel reads her Bible for comfort, praying continuously and trusting that God will bring them to safety, she is met by constant criticism from Asher, who believes "God" is nowhere to be found and couldn't care less about their plight. Will Rachel ever be able to reach Asher with the truth? Will they ever find their way out of the mountain? Will they even survive as the weather turns sour?
Crossing the Deep is a Christian young adult fiction novel. Typically I do not read fiction books, but I decided to pick this one up because the author is a fellow writer and friend of mine. I have to admit, despite my trepidation, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I found that I could not put it down--I started it late one night and finished it the next morning. I haven't read a fiction novel that kept my interest so fully since "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers.
If you enjoy fiction (and even if fiction isn't really you're thing) you'll be entertained by this young adult novel. I would certainly recommend it for any lover of a good action/adventure story.
I hope you'll take the opportunity to show some love and support to a great writer (and friend) who worked tirelessly to bring the world a wonderfully inspirational--and exciting--tale.
(I purchased this book on my own accord and was not required to give a positive review--nor was I expected to. The opinions here are strictly my own and were in no way coerced.)
Asher is everything a hero is supposed to be: a cocky, arrogant jerk who is fiercely loyal to those weaker than he, and is surprising tender and attentive with the right girl (*wink*). He's had a tough childhood and although he does believe in God, he doesn't expect much from Him. Rachel--the heroine--has deep, deep faith (and for someone who is 16, I'm envious--I have to tell myself this is a story :-)) and through her consumate belief, she touches a highly skeptical Asher who with every difficulty of their journey (Rachel's bum foot, diminishing food supply, limited resources) challenges her faith and at the same time becomes a world-class idiot.
But we love those cute idiots, dont' we? ;-)
Ms. Martin writes a compelling story of faith, hope, forgiveness, and redepmtion. I was sucked in on the very first page. I read most of this book while lying in my warm bed and I'm glad I did because I felt cold just reading this story. Her scene descriptions are life-like. The pacing was well done and it keeps the reader turning the page--or clicking the 'forward' button on your ereader. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to both juveniles and adults.
Although I am a firm believer in God, I haven't had much interest Christian fiction myself, but this was a great book overall. The author does a very nice job of building believable and likeable characters. The plot starts rolling right away and you won't get bored or hit any lulls in this story.
You will walk away from this story still thinking about the characters days later.
Great story, you won't be disappointed you purchased this one!
