    1. Wow! What an amazing story!I met Holly Michael at the American Christian Fiction Writers conference September 2014, where she presented me with an autographed copy of Crooked Lines.After reading just a few pages, I knew I wanted to feature her on my book blog. But I had no idea at the time that when Holly and her husband, Bishop Leo Michael, would travel to India in 2014, that he would fall ill with dengue fever while there. Thankfully, Bishop Leo has recovered.In Tsunami 2004: Still Wading Thro [...]

    2. This powerful book is the true story of the author's visit to India after the 2004 Tsunami. Through her poignant description, you will see, touch, and hear the plight of the survivors and also get a devastatingly close-up view of poverty. The part of the story that touched me the most was when she described the young girls. Married off based on their dowry value, the young women are disrespected and abused at every turn by their new inlaws. Women's rights is not even a concept. If the world of e [...]

    3. A very touching story that will stay with me even after I have finished it. It tells the beautiful story of the author and her husband and others going and offering physical and spiritual aid to those affected by the tsunami. The book paints pictures that make what happened more than just another news story. It was also wonderful to follow them on their return trip in 2014.

    4. This feels very much like the sequel to Crooked Lines, but is very much a work of non-fiction. This touching read answered some questions that I had regarding the true affects of the Tsunami and it's aftermath. Like Holly mentions, you don't know how much aid actually makes it on the ground unless it is done yourself. This is a VERY eye-opening read and I was sad at some of these outcomes, while very happy for others. This book provides a little known glimpse into the Tsunami ravaged region - th [...]

    5. Although I found parts of the book interesting, it just did not go into enough detail and there was too little information. It was more like reading a documentary than a book. The book alternated between 2005 right after the Tsunami 2004 and 2014 when Holly Michael and her husband Leo Michael, an Anglican priest made a return trip. However, there was no information about what had happened to the Michaels during that time. I did learn a lot about certain aspects of the culture of India, especiall [...]

    6. Jenny's reviewFather Michael and his wife Holly do amazing work for the people of India after they suffered major devastation from a tsunami. Your heart just aches for the people there and the injustice that the women and children suffer with. The system there is so broken and there's only a handful that seem to want to care or help.If you go to India ; you need a lot of toilet paper, bug spray and you never want to go to the hospital . Always have someone knowledgable of the area and that they [...]

    7. In Tsunami 2004: Still Wading Through Waves of Hope, Holly Michael shares her story how she and her husband help victims of the devastating Tsunami. I found myself in many different emotions. At times I was smiling and even laughing and saddened and brought to tears at others. I love how the Michaels went to help the victims right after the Tsunami hit. They spread love, hope, and faith to those affected. They are so admireable. I really love it that they went back 10 years later and were able t [...]

    8. This book is the true story of the author's visit to India after the 2004 Tsunami. Through her descriptions, you will read the plight of the survivors and of their poverty. The young girls are married according to their dowry value. The young women are abused and disrespected at every turn. It is hard for men and much worse for women. This gives more than the newscasters gave. I was given this book for an honest review.
