My father-in-law, yes, you read that right. My father-in-law introduced me to this author. Lynn Austin. She has written many books and I am about 75% done reading her work and have loved so many of them! This one Though Waters Roar was especially good. If you are looking for a new author - clean (she is a Christen writer) give her a try.
From the book:
Harriet Sherwood has always adored her grandmother. But when Harriet decides to follow her footsteps to fight for social justice, she certainly never expected her efforts to land her in jail. Nor did she expect her childhood enemy and notorious school bully, Tommy O'Reilly, to be the arresting officer.
Languishing in a jail cell, Harriet has plenty of time to sift through the memories of the three generations of women who have preceded her. As each story emerges, the strength of her family--and their deep faith in the God of justice and righteousness--brings Harriet to discovery of her own goals and motives for pursuing them.
