Through the Deep Waters Review

A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all
Born to an unloving prostitute in a popular Chicago brothel, timid seventeen-year-old Dinah Hubley was raised amidst the secrets held in every dark, grimy room of her home. Anxious to escape, Dinah pursues her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl, waiting tables along the railroad in an upscale hotel. But when she finds out she isn’t old enough, her only option is to accept a job as a chambermaid at the Clifton Hotel in Florence, Kansas. Eager to put everything behind her, Dinah feels more worthless than ever, based on a single horrible decision she made to survive.

The Clifton offers a life Dinah has never known, but blinded to the love around her, Dinah remains buried in the shame of her past. When a handsome chicken farmer named Amos Ackerman starts to show interest, Dinah withdraws further, convinced no one could want a sullied woman like her.  Despite his self-consciousness about his handicapped leg and her strange behavior, Amos resolves to show Dinah Christ’s love. But can she ever accept a gift she so desperately needs?

Through the Deep Waters by Kim Vogel Sawyer was a book I finished the day I got it. It was amazing! I always feel so deeply for all of the characters that Kim writes about but there was something about Dinah that made it so much more real. My heart broke for her and what she went through and then it rejoiced with her when she accepted Christ. I also loved that Alice Deaton (From What Once Was Lost) made a small cameo appearance. All in all Through the Deep Waters is a moving story of  redemption and forgiveness that you will not soon forget.

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that will forever be a favorite!

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
