The Deepest Waters

The Deepest Waters
Dan Walsh
ISBN: 978-0-8007-1980-7
April, 2011/304 pages/$14.99

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.

Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift, The Homecoming, and The Deepest Waters. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his family in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

Dan Walsh has quickly become a favorite novelist of mine, and as much as I enjoyed his first two offerings, The Deepest Waters is his best yet. Although a fictional story, it is based on actual events. At the outset I wondered if it would be simply a Titanic redux, but that was quickly dispelled. Mr. Walsh has woven the facts with just the right amount of emotion and imagination--not to mention strong elements of faith--to create a tender novel befitting the time period. This book will warm your heart.

Available April 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

This does sound like a good read. I'll add it to my list! Part of me wants you to tell me how it turns out but that would spoil it, wouldn't it? lol
