I have kept up with all of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s latest releases ever since reading My Heart Remembers, one of my favorite books. I immediately snatched the chance to read Through the Deep Waters when it came out. As much as I love the author and really wanted to love this book, I thought that it was just ok. Although the premise of the story was interesting and the message was beautiful, I didn’t connect with any of the characters and found myself bored and reading it quickly just so I could finish. However, this book did have a good message. It shows that no matter what you have done in your life or how broken you are, you can find peace and healing through Christ. I thought it had a nice ending as well.
To sum up, Through the Deep Waters had a touching story, sweet romance, and a powerful message. Unfortunately it didn’t quite hold my attention. If you enjoy uplifting historical novels, then I recommend you try out this book.
