Publisher's Summary

Dark waters are rising. Who will stay afloat? Architect Vance Nolan has crafted a marvel - shining apartments floating in the peaceful cove of a winding river. The project is partially occupied and about to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way. Torrential rains quickly flood the cove, leaving a handful of builders, investors, and residents cut off from the rest of the world. The motley group is bitterly divided over how to survive. Vance insists they wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single-mom Danielle Clement, obligated to each man and desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, isn’t sure which one is wiser.

Power failure, an unnatural daytime darkness, explosions, and a murder expose hidden intentions and dark histories. Then Simeon spots something strange underwater - beautiful, shifting lights in the dark depths. In this watery world, everyone’s secrets will eventually come to light. And deliverance may mean more than just getting out alive. Another stunning exploration of the human spirit and supernatural possibilities from best-selling author Erin Healy.

suspenseful and unique

This story centers on a building project--luxury floating condos. The designer originally wanted this for affordable housing for his fellow man but his backer wanted something more.

a disaster strikes and the lives of everyone in the condo, some of the builders, an unexpected others are at risk, their stories becoming intertwined.

Afloat is about unraveling layers of the lies we tell ourselves and the recognition of our own mortality--our own selfishness can be our undoing.

This is a Christian fiction book, and it is wonderfully written. The story keeps the reader at the edge of your seat.

The narrator is good but there is very little variation between the different accents of the people. I am just being picky, because she did do a good job.

what I didn't like: this story had angels and people dying and coming back to life. The theology was all wonky, and if you can overlook that it's still a very powerful story. I have to remember this is fiction and not nonfiction, so I do give it a bit of latitude.

I do recommend, but with reservation.

Great book!<br /><br />

This story was so well written. Each character was well developed and I felt like I was really in tune with each person. Then a twist would happen! A clear word picture was consistantly in place, and I would feel as though I was there. Great story development. The narrator was superior! She would have me holding my breath in some scenes. She captured moments superbly! Well done!
