Review of “The Solace of Water” by Elizabeth Byler Younts

When I first started this book I was afraid that the dialect in some chapters and the Pennsylvania Dutch in others was going to make this one slow read, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t slow me down at all. If you think that you are the only one who has secrets or shows a facade to people while inside you’re dying of guilt, then this books will remind you of just how wrong you are about that. Everyone has something that they don’t want the average person to know about themselves or their situation. I highly recommend this book. It is such a good read. It reinforces the idea of forgiving others but even more the idea of forgiving yourself which is sometimes the hardest person to forgive.
