Voices Blend in Lowcountry Novel
Jennifer M. Parker reviewed Trouble the Water in the May 11, 2008 (Mother's Day) issue of The Sun News (Myrtle Beach, SC).

The beauty in these three women is that, unlike some Christian-based fiction, they are absolutely real; their voices, their problems, their stories feel relatable. "It's a shame we only see things clearly in hindsight," says Duchess. "God really should do something about that."

Seitz also writes accurately and convincingly of the emotional bond between sisters, drawing the reader into their family. Click here to read the entire review.

Trouble the Water is one of the Editor's Book Picks in the May 2008 issue of Charleston Magazine.
