FROM THE BACK COVER:
"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. (YA)
Dekker delivers a thrilling story of redemption and forgiveness in the second book in his Outlaw Chronicles series. Alice Ringwald is 13 years old when she's kidnapped from her foster family and returned to the biological mother she never knew. Suffering from amnesia, Alice has no memory of her life six months before the abduction. She lives in seclusion with her mother, stepfather, and brother and learns her name is Eden; her mother believes she is the prodigal daughter returned to offer the family salvation. Eden's hope for a normal life is shattered as her devoutly religious mother makes peculiar demands. Eden would run away if it weren't for her younger brother Bobby, who suffers from an intellectual disability and about whom she feels fiercely protective. When Eden turns 18, her mother's extreme behavior devolves into something more dangerous, and the enigmatic Outlaw arrives to offer Eden a way out of her broken life. With pulse-ratcheting suspense, Dekker skillfully weaves tension, symbolism, and faith into the story. Fans of YA and Christian fiction readers will find Dekker's newest a fast-paced and satisfying read.
