TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – WATCHER by SARA DAVISON

 

THE BLURB

Someone or something is watching Kathryn Ellison.

Kathryn thought she had buried memories of That Night for good—until Nick Lawson returns, reigniting her long-suppressed feelings for him. Seeing Nick has always reminded her too much of the horrible night that changed her life. As much as she wants to be with him, she wants even more to forget. When Nick unexpectedly shows up at her family ranch, Kathryn knows it is finally time to let go of the traumatic past that has held her captive for so long.

David Henley is a captive too—of the dark secret involving Kathryn, a secret he’s kept even from his wife. Now the truth is about to be revealed. And when it is, he could be stripped of everything in his life that matters to him.

A storm is brewing in the spiritual realm, and its effects reverberate through the natural world, summoning otherworldly Beings to the ranch. While Kathryn confronts the memories of That Night and struggles to let them go, she is not as alone in her home as she thinks.

As spiritual and temporal forces collide, Kathryn—and everyone she loves—is about to be caught in the crossfire.


** Christian fiction that deals with a sensitive subject.

MY REVIEW

Rarely is a story so poignant, so gripping, so horrific, and yet so eloquent in its telling. With a sprinkling of humor, even. And yet, Ms. Davison has gifted her readers with such a treasure.

Watcher opens the veil to the spirit world, reminding us that even when we can’t (or don’t want to) see God, He is always with us. So, too, are spiritual beings, both heavenly and otherwise.

Most of us have not endured the extreme trauma Kathryn has. But all of us have faced trials. And all of us carry scars and memories, and baggage. All of us struggle to let go, to forgive, to truly walk in all that Father God has for us.

Ms. Davison chronicles Kathryn’s healing—and release—from the event that changed her life, and scarred her spirit. So many elements conspire to restore her to wholeness, or to destroy her completely—very literally a battle of good versus evil. The author doesn’t sugar coat the truth, though she does provide a break in the tension with the voice of the narrator—The Watcher.

Oh! How I wanted to wrap Kathryn in a great hug and make it all go away, make the “boo-boo” better. I yearned for her to find that peace that only comes from God, that full and final healing. I eagerly turned pages, awaiting the moment her victory arrived.

Nick. Near to sainthood, methinks. It’s not many men who would wait as he did, so sure of his love for her. Grace personified.

The threads of this story, the crisscross of the characters’ lives—Kathryn, Nick, Halyna, David, Dylan—for good, for evil, for God’s purpose. Ms. Davison takes her cue from God Himself, and does not take free will from her characters.

A story of forgiveness and one woman’s journey to healing, the impact is deep and weighty, and it will linger with me for a long time.
