How far would you go to protect your own?

All the way.

Ryan, the heroine, in Healing Sands by Nancy Rue and Stephen Arterburn would tell you this without flinching and in reading this book, you too would back her.

I bought this book from one of my favorite book vendors here in Nairobi and once I started reading, I could not put it down.

Aside from the 61 five-star reviews, this is what amazon has to say about the book: Her life was spinning out of control. A mix of anger and emptiness defined her. Desperate for true peace, she headed to a place of rest–the healing sands.


Ryan Coe’s marriage is over, her husband-Dan- got custody of their two sons because they told the court they would rather live with him than her. She’s not working at the level of the photojournalist she is and to top it all, she arrives at the scene of a crime to take pictures only to find her son behind the wheel of the car and suddenly her frustration sees her losing every ounce of control and going at everyone and everything.

She turns to Sullivan Crisp for help and though his methods and his faith is something she’s struggling with, but from their first talk, she slowly unravels.

This book made me feel helpless as well as powerful. I felt Ryan’s rage, her pain, conviction and that’s what made me enjoy this book.

It’s not just her struggles but as a character, what resonated with me was that I could see myself in every reaction she had and that moved me deeply.

Verdict: 26152615261526152615
