Heavy Winds in Paradise

  • Jun 21, 2010
Rating:
+3


Four different women, each in a different painful storm, are brought together seemingly randomly to a Bahamian resort where the waters bring healing according to the man who greets each of the three visiting women. The fourth woman, Riley, is the resort manager who is assigned to make sure that all is well with the visitors.

As the women interact their stories come out in often colorful and sometimes inappropriate ways. The issues dealt with are heavy ones for Christian fiction -- Illness, grief, divorce and alcoholism with the main theme being the acceptance of grace and shedding of shame. 

This novel is a little heavy for prairie Christian fiction lovers and might be for those looking for a light beach read. If you are looking for a cast of characters struggling through heavy life situations and almost too discouraged to hope for a little bit of mercy or grace, then this novel is for you.
