Still Waters by Lindsey Brackett is a delightful contemporary Christian novel that deals with love and loss, guilt and forgiveness, secrets and amazing grace. I absolutely adored the warm and welcoming inclusive style of Lindsey Brackett.
The characters were all realistically drawn and likable, with their vulnerabilities and insecurities. My favourite had to be Nan, the matriarch, who just wanted the best for those she loves.
Traumatic events in the past can loom large in the present if we do not deal with them. “You can run from a place but your past will still be there.” Guilt and burdens we were never meant to bear can weigh us down. We all need to receive forgiveness from the face in the mirror.
