Water’s Edge is a story about Thomas Crane, a lawyer who returns to his hometown to close down the legal firm of his recently deceased father. Along the way he stumbles across some discrepancies in his father’s files, involving the other man who died in the same tragic accident as his father. Will Thomas learn to trust God, do the right thing and solve the mystery?
The book was an easy read and for me the genre was a pleasant change from other Christian fiction I’ve read. While the plot line wasn’t too surprising you were kept reading right until the end trying to figure out the finer details.
Of all the characters I found Uncle Elias the most interesting, and loved the interaction between him and Thomas. I also loved the setting of the novel, I could almost imagine the town and people of Bethel and wish I could live there.
I enjoyed the spiritual message of the novel and the dilemmas with which Thomas is faced, as they are not simply “black and white” decisions. I would recommend this book to others, it was a good read.
