Afloat By Erin Healy

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description:

Dark waters are rising. Who will stay afloat?
Architect Vance Nolan has crafted a marvel—shining apartments floating in the peaceful cove of a winding river. The project is partially occupied and about to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way.
Torrential rains quickly flood the cove, leaving a handful of builders, investors, and residents cut off from the rest of the world.
The motley group is bitterly divided over how to survive.
Vance insists they wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single-mom Danielle Clement, obligated to each man and desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, isn’t sure which one is wiser.
Power failure, an unnatural daytime darkness, explosions, and a murder expose hidden intentions and dark histories. Then Simeon spots something strange underwater—beautiful, shifting lights in the dark depths.
In this watery world, everyone’s secrets will eventually come to light. And deliverance may mean more than just getting out alive.
Another stunning exploration of the human spirit and supernatural possibilities from best-selling author Erin Healy.


My Thoughts

Afloat is one of the many books by Erin Healy I have had the pleasure of reading and each one gets better as she goes. In this recent story, Vance Nolan has built a one of a kind living situation, apartments floating in the water.  Intended to be housing for the poor/homeless but when money runs out and investors aren't interested his dream has to be adjusted.  Tony Dean, a developer, has interest but he wants them to be luxury apartments.  As they are finishing up work one afternoon, a sinkhole gives way and the area begins to flood.  The residents that live there are stuck there and doesn't seem to be a way out.  

Afloat is an awesome story. The story is very deep and there is so much more there than meets the eye. Erin Healy weaves a tale of redemption, forgiveness, love, loss, and the supernatural powers around us.  The characters are well written and very deep.  Erin Healy paints a vivid picture of the days this group is trapped together and the different ways people react to these circumstances.  As I read this story I truly felt like I was there with them experiencing this world. Afloat is another novel that really grabbed me and stuck with me after I finished it.  I am a huge fan of Erin Healy and highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction. This novel will not disappoint. I can't wait to read more from Erin Healy!
I give this novel 5 Stars!
