Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Dr. Juliet Ryan has created her entire corporate career with two goals in mind: to provide safe drinking water to millions and to prove her estranged father wrong, a man she despises for breaking her trust years ago. She convinces herself that the insincere world she has created with its wealth and privileges does indeed fill her with happiness and she determines to succeed without the help of anyone or anything. But when disaster suddenly strikes and Juliet finds herself in the midst of a corporate scandal, the lies and deceit growing daily, she discovers the world she has built for herself leaves her utterly alone. Feeling desperate, she turns to the one person who has wounded her the most, realizing that learning to forgive and surrendering control, neither of which are easy, can be the true keys to happiness and freedom.

Yet again, Kellie Coates Gilbert crafts a story filled with raw realistic emotion from a unique perspective, allowing readers glimpses into interesting sides of conflict normally not experienced. It does not take long to connect with Juliet and to understand her struggles both with forgiving a deep hurt and attempting to succeed in corporate America. The book so accurately demonstrates the true emptiness bitter hearts, wealthy statuses, and indifferences towards God can create. Twists and suspense throughout the novel allow it to be not entirely predictable, and the central theme of freedom through forgiveness and love allows readers to apply the principles to their own lives. A truly exceptional and gripping tale that is difficult to put down. Highly recommended!

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
