Healing Waters is the fictional story of two sisters, Lucia and Sonia. Lucia lacks self-confidence and sees herself as fat and inferior. She has lived her life waiting on others. Sonia, the beautiful younger sister, is the spokes person for a Christian organization that spread a feel-good message based on false teachings. Sonia teaches that God blessed those who walked closely with Him and if you are having a rough spot then you are not walking close to him. When a plane crash leaves Sonia disfigured, her world begins to crash around her. Lucia comes to her rescue. Through a therapist, Sullivan Crisp, Lucia comes to terms with herself worth. As Sully helps Lucia, he helps himself.
This is the second book in the Women of Faith series. I was mesmerized by this book and read it in one sitting. Lucia is a multifaceted character with deep emotions that she had never really faced. Sonia was a rather shallow person attempting to preach the word of God when she really didn’t know it. There are numerous secondary characters that add a dimension to this tale. Like all of us, each character has flaws, and God uses flawed characters. I eagerly await the next installment in this series.
