Water Walker by: Ted Dekker

Description: COVERS:FINAL COVERS - WORTHY:Winter 2014:9781617952746.jpgSynopsis:

This is the second book in the Outlaw series.It tells the story of 13-year-old Alice Ringwald who is abducted by a strange man causing a frantic FBI manhunt. 

My name is Alice Ringwald, but the man who kidnapped me says that’s a lie.”

Thirteen-year-old orphan Alice Ringwald has no memory beyond six months ago. The only life she knows is the new one she’s creating one day at a time with the loving couple that recently adopted her and gave her new hope. That hope, however, is shattered one night when she is abducted by a strange man. In a frantic FBI man hunt, the kidnapper vanished with Alice. So begins Water Walker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering power of forgiveness, and reminds us that it’s possible to live free of the hurt that keeps our souls in chains.

Review:  I really enjoyed the fast pace of this book.  It was quite an interesting read but at times, some of the characters were a bit disturbing and cult-like.  I wouldn’t let it turn you off to it though.  Ted Dekker is a great story teller.  I give this book 4 crowns.
