Her unexpected homecoming has conjured up memories and images she longed to forget.
Coming home to Kansas after years of being away, Macey finds herself beginning to unravel on the inside. She came simply to bury her father, then return immediately to her big-city career. The past would have to remain where it was - behind her, deeply buried. But once she arrives again in the old farmhouse, a roiling current of memories carries her back to the reasons she left in the first place.
Rene Gutteridge's deft touch makes memorable her lifelike portrait of characters struggling with issues universal to the human experience. A story of love, healing and renewal, with secrets aplenty simmering just beneath the surface, Troubled Waters explores with insight and verve the challenges of faith and of doubt.
Macey intends to return immediately to her fast-paced, successful TV anchor job after her father's funeral. But it's been seventeen years since she turned her back on her family and left home, and she feels bound to help her mother out of her dire financial situation. Yet the painful reasons for leaving all those years ago haunt Macey to this day, resonating in the visible reminders and memories that linger in her parents' home. Yearning to flee again but drawn unwittingly to the intriguing neighbor across the river, can Macey hope to restore the shattered relationships of the past -- and renew the faith she thought she had cast aside forever?
