Through Rushing Water is a wonderfully written novel full of heartbreak and love, tragedy and triumph. This novel is Christian Fiction but it is based on the very real and very tragic history of the Ponca Indian Tribe. I can't begin to imagine how many hours of fact finding and research went into the writing of this novel. Mrs. Richmond did an outstanding job of making the reader feel the characters' frustration at seemingly unanswered prayers and their joy and thankfulness at prayers that were answered quickly. I would definitely suggest this book to anyone who loves Christian Fiction and history. It is appropriate for anyone from advanced young readers to adults.
