[Book Review: AFLOAT by Erin Healy]

[Book Review: AFLOAT by Erin Healy]

I am attracted to books that deal with supernatural events and I knew that Erin Healy was a good author because she co-authored two books with my favorite Ted Dekker. This, however, was my first book written exclusively by Erin Healy.

The story is about people who are involved in a building project – houses on water. Considering that I have a lot of friends who are in construction / architects, this topic interests me. Besides an interesting concept (albeit not a new one, architecture-wise) for the housing, Erin wove quite a tapestry of relationships between the characters and up until the very end, you’re held in suspense, trying to figure out what will happen.

_240_360_Book.852.coverI definitely enjoyed reading this book – I couldn’t wait until the end of the work day so I had free time to read! In a way, this book reminded me of Shaunti Feldhahn’s Veritas Conflict and Frank Peretti’s novels because it also dealt with spiritual world and battles, not just physical / emotional side of the world.

The characters are well-written, in my opinion. I do wonder what happened to a few of them after the end of the story, but I hope everything turned out good for them too.

For me, a book where I can find a quote I can use for later, is a good book. One dialogue, in particular, made me smile because that day all my Scripture reading was centered around patience…

“At least, you know you’re doing what you must do.”
“Is it enough?”
“Is it enough? That’s the question of a man who thinks that waiting is a weaker activity. But patience requires the strength of Hercules.”

Overall, I recommend this book for those who are looking for a good suspense story with romance and relationships mixed in.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  • As you know, at this point, I am not much into Dekker. But you do make this one sound interesting. may have to read it in my spare time (next year). lol

    • Well, this isn’t Dekker, she just co-authored a couple of books with him, but this is not one of them.

      By the way, I don’t remember if I asked you – have you ever thought of becoming a reviewer for BookSneeze (Thomas Nelson / Zondervan / Westbow Press)? I keep seeing books there that you’re reading (like Altar Ego) – and you can get them for free, just write a review…
