My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Genre: Christian Historical Fiction
A person’s faith is as unique as we all are from each other, sure there are some things that are alike in humans but there are still many differences, I think faith is the same way. Let me explain a little further so there is no confusion, you read a verse of scripture with a friend that friend says this verse means one thing while you feel that it means another, that is our own individual faith, one that cannot be found in a church but one that resides within us and is an extension of a personal relationship with whatever higher being we believe in, that is what drew me to Sinners and the Sea. I believe in many things but I still struggle through faith in things that cannot be proven scientifically which is another reason I picked up this book, but enough about this one to the review!
I really enjoyed this book. This is the first time that I have read a historical fiction novel that pulls characters and events from the Bible so I was a little skeptical when I started to read it and even though it was not as action packed as those easy to read for entertainment reads I still kept continuously turning the pages.
First daughter, than wife and last mother. We are all defined by our relationships and our narrator is no different but she ends up being the beginning of well a whole new beginning, evolutionary wise. Scorned, shunned, scared, and unsure our narrator grows into the role that she is to play in the lord’s plan. So even though the odds stacked against her for the port wine stain on her face, which pretty much everyone deems the responsibility of a demon that lives inside our narrator , she overcomes, her differences made her stronger.
