The Deepest Waters is a story of hope. It is wrapped with an unconditional love that is forever between a man and the woman he loves. In 1857 John and Laura Foster board the SS Vandervere. They are dreaming of a honeymoon to remember. What they didn't count on was a hurricane that would tear apart their dreams. The characters in this story are rich and you see the heart of man. I must say one of my favorite Characters is, Micah, a slave, aboard the ship. Oh, if we could all have a heart like his. We see despair in the darkest times in life and how the Lord brings light even in the deepest parts of life. Laura is rescued, along with other women and children, but her heart is empty. John is lost at sea with the other brave men who stood to help others escape. I love how Dan Walsh shows us their deepest emotions. He writes a tale that is filled with hope and romance. It is as though we are there in deepest waters with them. A story inspired by true events. It is one that will teach us to embrace each moment of life.

I enjoyed this delightful book. I loved how Dan Walsh shared the story of both Laura and John, together, and then when they were left alone only thinking of the other. He intertwined their characters with others like, Micah, to bring us into a full view of their story.

This book was a gift from Revell for it's review.
