I enjoyed this book. Where ever the family travels, the author puts you in that place right with her characters. I also enjoyed the setting and learning about the Foreign Service. The family story kept me guessing. I enjoyed their character development and the ending. I look forward to more from V.C. Williams.

An amazing book from this first-time author. Character development is excellent with the characters coming alive. It is a story of far-away lands and a family’s journey through them, with many exciting adventures. It is also a story of forbidden love with twists, turns, and torment as the consequences thereafter. Yet, it is a story of hope for those who will try to forgive and forget. I gave it five stars and earnestly hope to see more from this gifted new writer.

V.C. Williams keeps you engaged in the storyline from the minute you start to read. You get to travel along side of her main characters, both wanting something the other can’t or won’t give. Walking in Deep Sand keeps you on the edge of your seat, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s a story of love, neglect, and obsession. You come to empathize with each character and want what’s best for them, even if it brings hardship for the other. This story is based on true events. It’s an excellent read.
