Over the Waters is a touching story of the conditions in Haiti, the people who live there and the humanitarian workers and missionaries who work to help those in need. The overall story of Max and Valerie left much to be desired. The book is billed as a romance and there was very little romance. Max was a hard character to like even when he softened a bit about his son’s choice. I had a bit more sympathy for Valerie. Overall, it was enjoyable but not memorable. If you are a fan of Ms Raney, you may enjoy Over the Waters.

I give Deb Raney five stars for subject matter. Meaningful Christian fiction dealing with characters in Christian ministry is far too scarce. She does a great job of balancing the crushing need of orphans in Haiti with the joy and hope they can receive from Christ and people who care. Contrary to so much of Christian fiction, Raney emphasizes positive values and compassion over hormones and physical attraction in the romance. She shows the joy and satisfaction in ministry and serving others. I love all that. However, I am disappointed with any Christian romance in which mature Christian believers fall in love with someone before they come to faith in Christ. That is a flaw here. This is also an American book written for American believers so it emphasizes the part Americans play in providing for the needs of Haitians. While I understand that, perhaps more could have been done to highlight the part Haitians played in this ministry.
Overall, this is an interesting read with characters who make you care about them.
