THE DEEPEST WATERS
The Deepest Waters by Dan Walsh will take you on a voyage back in time. Mr. Walsh does a wonderful job of making you feel you’re right there, many years ago, sailing on the SS Vandervere. I loved how Mr. Walsh incorporated slavery and how it played out.
John and Laura are separated at sea after only being married a short time. Laura believes John to be dead but stays strong. Meanwhile John is fighting for his life out at sea. His love for Laura and God is all that keeps him from giving up.
I enjoyed reading the author’s note on his research for The Deepest Waters. It was fascinating to learn what actually happened and how it inspired The Deepest Waters, reminding me of The Titanic.
