The Deepest Waters by Dan Walsh - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)

For John and Laura Foster, what began as a fairytale honeymoon in 1857 aboard the steamship SS Vandervere soon becomes a nightmare. A terrible hurricane strikes and the grand ship is lost in the murky depths of the Atlantic. Laura finds herself rescued with the other women and children, but how can she feel anything but despondent without her groom? Suspecting her John is gone but still daring to hope for a miracle, Laura must face the possibility of life alone.

Talented author Dan Walsh skillfully tells an epic story of hope, faith, and love through an intimate lens. Inspired by real events, this emotional and honest story will capture your heart as you sail through its pages.

My Thoughts:

Oh dear reader!! You WILL sail through the pages of this story! Your heart will rise and sink with waves of emotion - both good and bad! This book takes you back to a time that was very different from the twenty-first century - but human nature wasn't different at all! Selfishness, fear, doubt and sorrow plagued many and cost them everything. But for others, hope, love, sacrifice and restoration took place in slow measure.

There are some incredibly developed characters in this story that will challenge you to take a look at your faith and whether or not it rests on Christ's faithfulness or your circumstance. You will also learn the blessed hope that Christ alone offers through EVERY circumstance! This is a moving, unforgettable story, and one that I am very happy to recommend to you! You won't be able to put it down!!
