The Deepest Waters was given to me to read and review by Revell. The following is my own opinion. I have not been paid for my review.
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. (From Revell's website)

Expert from The Deepest Waters:
Thirty minutes later, the Vanderver lurched violently, tossing men every which way. Dozens went over the rail. The rest slid down the desk toward the base of the ship, colliding so bard that some were knocked unconscious. Shouts and fearful cries to the Almighty rang through the air. John was still conscious but felt blows from the several elbows and feet about his head and sides.
He wondered.... was this it? Was it too late now to escape?
I became fully captivated with this story. I can say that this book started with bang! Dan Walsh intertwined the lives of the ladies and the lives of the men very well....( the ladies were rescued by another ship, leaving the men to fight it out.) I found myself worrying what was going to happen, if John was going to make it, will Laura ever find her husband?
The Deepest Waters is filled with hero's and heroins. The need for survival out shines the preconceived notions about the fellow men and ladies. I love how Dan showed that the Lord does indeed provide for his Children. It was encouraging to me, to see an author write about God's Keeping Power!
This book is not just a love story, it is a story about how in the deepest darkest spot we may find ourselves in, God is there Watching out for Us, Providing for us and keeping a hand of safety on us.
