Water Walker by Ted Dekker-My Review

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.

Really a fantastic book by Ted Dekker. Water Walker from the very first chapter, even first line grabbed me and I couldn’t wait to read every word and find out what happened next. Alice got into such a mess that I felt that there was no way she would ever get out or even live, but Ted pulled it through again at the very end. Water Walker is part of The Outlaw Chronicles. You don’t need to read The Outlaw, but it gives you back story. Also if you want to know the whole story you should also read Showdown, another unbelievable  book.
  I love how Ted works forgiving everyone and knowing no matter what happens to you on this earth it’s just happens to your outside shell. A very well written, highly interesting book. I very much recommend Water Walker. I didn’t review this for any publishing company or for the author. I just wanted everyone to know what an excellent book this is.

Dekker was born to missionaries and grew up among cannibals of Indonesia, and his peculiar upbringing gives him a unique perspective outside the cultural bubble, allowing him the freedom to share provocative insights in his fiction. After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States, earning his B.A. in philosophy and religion, and then went into business.
In the early nineties, Dekker decided to pursue his desire to write fiction, selling his company, moving his family to the mountains of western Colorado, and writing full-time. Two years and three books later his first novel, a supernatural thriller called Heaven's Wager, was published. Dekker proceeded to write 6 more supernatural thrillers, rising to the top of many bestsellers lists and earning himself critical acclaim and legions of fans. "Thr3e" heralded his launch into mainstream fiction and was followed by "Obsessed," "Skin," "Adam," and "BoneMan's Daughters," all of which hit the New York Times bestseller list.
Ted Dekker's fans are comprised of readers of all ages, backgrounds, and belief systems who love his compulsively readable stories, authentic characters, and universal and relatable themes that he explores from a unique point of view.
He resides in Austin, Texas with his wife and children. You can find him at Teddekker.com and Facebook.com/teddekker.
