Publisher's Description

A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all
Born to an unloving prostitute in a popular Chicago brothel, timid seventeen-year-old Dinah Hubley was raised amidst the secrets held in every dark, grimy room of her home. Anxious to escape, Dinah pursues her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl, waiting tables along the railroad in an upscale hotel. But when she finds out she isn’t old enough, her only option is to accept a job as a chambermaid at the Clifton Hotel in Florence, Kansas. Eager to put everything behind her, Dinah feels more worthless than ever, based on a single horrible decision she made to survive.
The Clifton offers a life Dinah has never known, but blinded to the love around her, Dinah remains buried in the shame of her past. When a handsome chicken farmer named Amos Ackerman starts to show interest, Dinah withdraws further, convinced no one could want a sullied woman like her.  Despite his self-consciousness about his handicapped leg and her strange behavior, Amos resolves to show Dinah Christ’s love. But can she ever accept a gift she so desperately needs?

    Such a wonderful historical novel of forgiveness and redemption. Dinah knows nothing of God and withdraws from others to protect herself. No man (or woman) is an island and she eventually feels the need for fellowship and love. A great book for learning more about our God and His Word.

    I received an ARC for an honest review. What a beautiful story of God's love and redemption and a perfect example of how Christ will forgive our sins if we confess them. Kim knocked it out of the ballpark again with this book. Dinah and Amos are such heartwarming characters that I loved reading about. I would love to see a sequel to follow up on them and follow Ruthie's story, as I didn't want it to end. You don't want to miss out on reading this, as you will be blessed.

    This review was written for Through the Deep Waters.
    Kim Vogel Sawyer's historical fiction asks a penetrating question of her readers, "How can a person born with overwhelming disadvantages ever hope to live a normal life, in peace with herself or himself and with God?" The book, Through the Deep Waters , explores the tentativeness of new relationships, budding friendships, family ties, and personal fulfillment, all wrapped up in the history of the early years of business dependence on the expansion of travel by railroad.

    Dinah Hubly's childhood was less than ideal. By the time she was sixteen, she was considered a pariah in her community, deprived of a father's provision and care, without a mother's tender love, unfamiliar with family life, and without a friend in the world, except possibly for Reuben, the house cook. She wasn't even allowed to call Tori mother or ma in public because business would suffer if it were known that Tori had a child. At school, no one was allowed to be her friend because they all believed she was one of Flo's girls. She was born and had grown up in a brothel. Desperately, Dinah wanted to escape the gilded cage if only she knew how. One day, Reuben showed her an ad in a newspaper. Fred Harvey was looking for hard-working girls to be servers in his famous eating houses interspersed along the Santa Fe line out West. From that moment on, Dinah dreamed of becoming one of Harvey's girls --a new life where no one knew who she was. But at what price was she willing to pay for that freedom?

    Amos Ackerman, on the other hand, knew what a family's love was like. He knew the security felt when you are loved by your parents and siblings. But when he was only eleven, a wagon ran over him and broke his hip. It hadn't healed properly, so now he walked with a marked limp. It was chronically painful, especially in cold weather. When it came time to choose a life career, he broke family tradition by becoming a chicken farmer. He was not able to walk a farm large enough to grow wheat as his father and brothers were doing. He purchased a small farm with just enough to start a tiny flock of Leghorns. He delivered eggs door to door in the nearby town of Florence, Kansas. It was a good beginning.

    I enjoy reading character-driven stories. This one touched my heart in so many ways. The three main characters, Dinah, Amos and Ruthie, became a triangle of entanglement, misdirected impressions, and internal struggles as the three young adults attempted to cope with life's challenges, twists and even U-turns. No one could fight their battles for them, and where close friendship could have guided them through the labyrinth of trials together, they avoided being forthright with each other. Instead of helping, they hurt each other. The reader is left to wonder if the trio would ever discover how valuable good friendship is. If relationship drama draws you in, then be sure to have some tissues on hand while reading this book.

    Another good impression I derived from reading this book is how beautifully the author portrayed the spiritual awakening for Dinah, who grappled with the concept of a loving God; for Ruthie whose offer of friendship had never been rebuffed before, leaving her baffled and filled with wrong impressions and insecurity for the first time in her life; for Amos who had to confront his reluctance to place complete trust for his future in God's capable hands. The author skillfully entwines these trials together, using them as the catalyst for the trio's life lessons. This was so compelling to read that I had a difficult time putting the book down. For me, this book was a real page turner.

    Thirdly, this adventurous read is placed in the true-to-life historical background of the Santa Fe railroad, the roadhouses which sprang up along the line, and the superior service and reputation of Harvey's Girls--servers who had to meet stringent qualifications and restrictions to gain the position. I enjoyed the research the author did for this story. She writes all this with flare. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Christian romance and historical fiction books.

    Through the Deep Waters was a wonderful story of love, faith, courage and never giving up on a person you care about. It reminded me of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, but with the added story of friendship thru the character of Ruthie. Amos is a perfect representation of a Godly man who saw through Dinah's past and loved her anyway. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance with a complete story even beyond the romance.

    A wonderful story of "redeeming love"! Dinah Hubley is immediately thrust into making a decision that no young woman should ever have to make; whether or not to sell herself in order to survive. Once made, the decision can never be reversed, so Dinah flees her mother's house of ill repute to start her life over again as a chambermaid in a reputable Kansas hotel. There she meets the handsome, kind and gentle-spirited Amos Ackerman.

    Dinah is an anomaly to everyone she meets. Private, close-mouthed, skittish around newcomers, always hard-working; she struggles to fit in. Even her roommate, the vivacious, talkative Ruthie Mead nearly gives up on Dinah, especially as her jealousy over Mr. Ackerman's attention towards Dinah, sets in. As Dinah and Amos slowly build on their mutual attraction, Dinah's past comes roaring into town on an afternoon train. Will Dinah be able to lean on her newfound faith and accept the love of her Savior and the forgiveness He offers; will Amos overcome his rage at being misled before it's too late?

    The author writes, in her closing statements, that this story was close to her heart, perhaps more than any other that she has ever written. No wonder "Through the Deep Waters" has such a resounding, deep felt level of empathy,compassion and unconditional love!
