review 2: Newlyweds, John and Laura Foster have set sail on their honeymoon on the SS Vandervere from San Francisco to New
... more York in 1857. Somewhere near the Carolinas, they are overtaken by a hurricane and the ship begins to sink. Fortunately, the women and children are rescued by a smaller ship but the men are forced to stay behind. Some of the men find objects to use a life preservers or rafts but others drown and go down when the ship sinks to the deepest depths of the sea. Laura travels with the other survivors on the smaller ship in deep despair as she believes her new husband to be drowned and her future uncertain as John's family in New York doesn't even know about her. Meanwhile, John and hundreds of other men are floating in the sea for days on end with no water or food. I don't want to give away too much so if you want to know how each of them fair, then you'll have to read the book for yourself. This is the second book I have read by Dan Walsh. The first being, The Reunion which I have also reviewed and loved. I thoroughly enjoyed the Deepest Waters and I must say that Mr. Walsh has a unique and wonderful style of writing all his own. I said this before but I believe he writes a story as if he is telling it to a friend which I most enjoy. I haven't encountered this style before from any authors I have read. There is a Christian flair to the story along with love, hope, faith, and courage above all.Published in April 2011 by Revell Publishers, The Deepest Waters is an 2012 ACFW Carol Awards Finalist and was based on the true story of the steamship SS Central America. less

I read this book quickly like I really liked it but it was just waaaay too predictable for me.
Typically, I don't like period books but I'm glad I read this one. Excellent!
I loved this book. Inspiring, tragic, and a great ending.
