My husband and I have 2 boys in college! We have rekindled our life with out children at home and after a rough year of so on my part we are enjoying each others company . My husband loves fishing and hunting and I was included on this mornings fishing trip. I quietly sat reading The mountain Between us and in between driving the boat while he got bait and helping I finished the entire book. At the end I was crying not just for the beautifully written story that moved me beyond words but for the feeling of love I have for my husband and all our memories. Thanks for a great book and for making me remember what a great husband I have! Can't wait to read your other books.
Please try to get all future books in large print editions as my eyes are not what they used to be. Thanks! God bless you and your talents and abilities to include God in every story.Susan Hurley
I just finished Where the River ends today. I have read Unwritten (loved it), Maggie,Thunder and Rain, Chasing Fireflies,When Crickets Cry,The Mountain Between Us, The Dead Don't Dance and my last book to read is Wrapped in Rain. Your style is amazing and I'm hoping your next book is almost ready to go because i can't wait!!! Did you every make a movie on Dead Men Don't Dance? I have shared your name to all my friends who love great stories. I read abourt 20 books a month so you need to write two a year or I will go crazy!! Books are my favorite venue as opposed to tv and movies and I have never come across anyone with you unique stye. Keep them coming!!!
Just finished Where the River Ends...this is my third Charles Martin book. Started with When Crickets Cry, then The Mountain Between Us...and now this one. I have loved each one of them...exceptional story-telling...character development...graphic scenery recapturing...a perfect book from start to finish. I am so blessed by your understanding of marriage...what biblical covenant marriage looks like...and the attack it is under from the secular, lustful, empty counterfeit this world has to offer. I love the raw transparency of your characters...they are tempted...because they are human. But the decisions they make to overcome the temptation speaks to the truth that you have understood. Beautiful books!!! Thank you for using the gifts and talents God has given you to subtly share the message of the Gospel!
i am reading where the river ends , the first book i have read by Charles it is indeed a very touching and thoughtful book looking forward to finishing this great tale and to reading all of his great work ...
I am buoyed by the extraordinary voyage the two go through, the love, the happiness, the great sadness.
I read Where the River Ends quite a while ago. Loved it. Read The Mountain Between Us and loved it and now I just finished Thunder and Rain. I just could not put it down. What a wonderful writer you are. Keep the good books coming. Have a great holiday season with your family and friends.
i just finished "Where the River Ends"---in one sitting. Once I started reading I could not put it down- and at the same time I didn't want it to end. Never have I read a book that has touched me like this one has. It is the most beautiful love story- and the writing is magical. I felt more like I was watching a movie instead of reading a book. As I was reading I kept thinking about you- the author- and what a special, insightful man you must be to be able to understand love and put it into words the way you did. I have a new favorite author. Thank you for sharing your wonderful book with me. Carolynne Dancer Vancouver BC
I loved the book. I'm a cancer surviver and it hit home in so many ways. Thank you for writing it.
I read WhereThe River Ends once a year. It because I believe in the "joy/sorrow" of life that go side by side. From the greatest glimpses of heaven's joy that we get surprised by out of the blue and the sorrow when that glimpse also glimmers with sorrow at the same time. It is the way of The Cross...Think about the gift to express that so well. Much appreciation for you Charles. Fan the flame within you young man like Paul told TImothy to do.I hope you read these comments so that you may be encouraged to write more/
