The Book Stops Here: Deepest Waters by Dan Walsh

If you've read my reviews of Dan Walsh's first two books, The Unfinished Gift and The Homecoming, you know how much I enjoy his writing. When Dan asked me to review his latest novel, The Deepest Waters, I didn't hesitate.

I will only be posting a blurb of the book here because I will be submitting a full review for to feature in May. I'll be sure to post a link to that review when it's available.

For now, though, I'll just say that The Romantic Times compares Dan Walsh to Nicholas Sparks, in the sense that both authors prove that men can write great romance. In my opinion, Dan can officially be dubbed, "The Nicholas Sparks of Christian fiction." If you love romance--particularly historical romance--you won't want to miss out on this book.

Here's a blurb about The Deepest Waters:

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 is rescued by a small ship sailing by, but there's only room for the women and children. Believing her John is lost but still daring to hope for a miracle, Laura must face the possibility of life alone in New York City with a family she has never met. The Deepest Waters is an epic story of hope, faith, and love through an intimate lens. Inspired by a true story.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to providing the link to my full review in May. For now, I encourage you to pick up a copy and enjoy this touching and inspiring story of love and faith.

Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift and The Homecoming. Dan is finishing up his 5th book with Revell, and has also begun work on a novel with Guideposts. He is part of a team of authors writing a new series called "Miracles of Marble Cove."

I read a few of Nicholas Sparks' novels with great interest. Although I loved his writing, I soon gave up reading his work because of the worldview presented.

I am delighted to learn of Dan Walsh and plan to check out his books as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for the review!
