Book Review: Deep Harbor

I love Christian romance novels. This week I was able to read and write reviews on two different ones. I usually save these for my lazy summer reading days, but I just could not wait until then this time around. These looked to interesting.

This book is about three women: Tora, Elsa her sister, and Kaatje. Elsa and Kaatje both have something in common. There husbands are dead and they have children and families to raise on their own.

Tora is a selfish spoiled little brat who wants everything her way. After the man she intends on marrying finds out she has lied about her past he fires her setting off a chain of events that will forever change her life.

While reading this book, Tora's life reminded me so much of my own in many ways. This book just made me grateful for the wonderful loving God that I serve.

Book Synopsis:

As they build new lives in America, Tora, Elsa, Kaatje, and Karl each experience a personal tragedy that threatens to destroy everything they left Norway to find. Tora’s web of lies has cost her a successful future with the man she loves. When tragedy strikes, Elsa must draw upon her faith and the strength she can muster to discover who she is and the path she must follow. After her husband’s disappearance, Kaatje struggles to raise two young daughters and tend her farm, and Karl finds himself caught in a life of loneliness and emptiness. Only by placing their trust in God—and in each other—will they pass through these rough waters and find the safety of the harbor.

From the richly forested banks of the Washington Territory to the burgeoning city of Yokohama and across the turbulent, danger-filled waves of the open sea—experience the epic saga of perseverance, pain, faith, and calling in the Northern Lights series.
