Water Walker by Ted Dekker - Episode One - Reviewed

About this episode:
A thirteen year old with no memory beyond the past six months - Abigail.  A woman who has been searching for her daughter for thirteen years - desperate to have her back in her life. Olivia - an FBI agent who lost her daughter seven years ago - a fact that makes her the best at finding those children who suddenly are missing.  

These are some of the main characters in Ted Dekker's latest story, Water Walker.  The entire novel was just released, but after finishing episode one, I know that I have to discover the real story behind this novel! Written in a style familiar to Dekker fans, the story is rife with suspense from the first pages.  The characters are unique in their circumstances but portray universal truths about everyone. Why becomes the haunting refrain in this first episode as each character is left to sort through circumstances that are uncomfortable and frightening.

Toward the end of this episode, chapter Seven, a familiar character appears.  I wasn't expecting that, but neither was I surprised.  Dekker is taking readers on a personal journey of discovery - the discovery of the grace, the love and the mercy that pursues us regardless of the circumstances we allow to imprison us.  There is freedom.  There is forgiveness.  There is grace.

Like I said, I've only experienced the first episode, and I am hooked! Dekker has found his voice - his strong, true voice, and he is telling a story that must be shared!! Don't miss the opportunity to take this journey.  It will change your life!  I can't wait to dive deep into the story!
