Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/12/2013 -- Novels that highlight the greatness in humans have permeated the lives of people, inspiring and pushing them to overcome the odds in their life - be it a seemingly unreachable dream, a family or personal issue that is less likely to be fixed, or an addiction imprisoning the soul. Fictional or real, many stories of hope, struggle and survival in life have created a stir among readers.
Healing Waters is a story about competitive swimming at the highest level, dashed dreams for Olympic gold and redemption. This gripping fictional novel centers on Jeff Conners, who teaches boys to swim in Oxford, Mississippi. Three years earlier, Jeff was on the verge of becoming the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympic Games. Banned from competitive swimming for doping, Jeff now struggles to find purpose in his meaningless existence until he discovers a phenomenal young talent swimming in the muddy waters of nearby Moon Lake, but there's a problem. The swimming prodigy to whom Conners has pinned his dreams of athletic redemption is autistic.
A first from author Rob Wierick, "Healing Waters" succeeds in advocating that some things are truly better than gold and the dreams to which we aspire may only be a means to find what truly matters in life.
The novel has earned "4.8 out of 5 stars" on Amazon.com.
