Dan Walsh's latest book. The Deepest Waters is a rich book. It pulled me in from the first chapter as Dan introduced characters and a situation that made me want to shut out the world and curl up until I reached the last page.
Dan has an amazing ability to create characters that are three dimensional. They are people that I want to spend time with and get to know better. I care about their journeys and whether there will be a Happily Ever After. With John and Laura, he's created two more characters I could root for from the first page. The situation seems impossible, but is inspired by true events. The history lover in me LOVES that!

More about the book: What began as a fairytale honeymoon in 1857 for John and Laura Foster aboard the steamship SS Vandervere becomes a nightmare when a hurricane causes their ship to sink into the murky depths of the Atlantic. Laura finds herself with the other women and children aboard a sailing ship while John and a hundred other men drift on the open sea on anything they could grab as the Vandervere went down. Suspecting her John is gone but still daring to hope for a miracle, Laura must face the possibility of life alone--and meeting her new in-laws without their son if she ever reaches New York.
Thanks to Dan and Revell for sending me a copy of the book. The opinion is all mine.
