Book Review, “Through the Deep Waters,” Kim Vogel Sawyer author

through deep waters coverThrough the Deep Waters, by Kim Vogel Sawyer, is a magnificent book. It conveys the story of Dinah and Amos, who must deal with many issues in order to find the love they desire.

Dinah is born to a prostitute in Chicago. When she discovers that her mother is dying, she agrees to sell herself once in order to provide for care and begin a new profession as a Harvey Girl. She changes her mind at the last minute, but is taken advantage of anyway. Once in Florence, Kansas, working as a chambermaid in a hotel until she can be a Harvey Girl at age eighteen, she fights a brokenness inside. There she meets Amos, who eventually wins her heart. But when Amos discovers her past, his reaction is worse than Dinah has hoped for and leaves her decimated. Only God can heal them both and allow them to love again.

I was very pleased with this book.   The story immediately drew my attention and held it until the very end. Dinah’s story still happens to many young women even today, and people still react in the same manner as Amos. This tale has a message for anyone interested in historical fiction.


I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
