Blog Tour of The Deepest Water's by Dan Walsh

This is my first time reviewing a book by author Dan Walsh. But after reading what this book was about, I knew I had to try it. I have always loved this type of story so this was one for me to try, and boy am I glad I did!

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.

Readers will be holding their breath as they sail through this emotional and honest story of hope, faith, and love in the face of uncertainty. Talented author Dan Walsh skillfully tells an epic story through an intimate focus on two lost lovers. Inspired by real events, this moving novel will capture the hearts of all who dive into its pages.

MY THOUGHTS-This book is not quite based on fact, but there is a lot about it that is based on something that happened before. Confusing you aren't I:) Well, not trying to and Don explains this at the end of the book but I have to say, I LOVED this book! It has a very different style to it. Not like your normal fiction book, maybe as it is a male author. Not sure why, but it was a good different.

One of my favorite characters in this whole book was Micah. He was quite a character and had so much good wisdom. And it is wisdom that will help today. Very good! I also liked John and I won't go into further detail as I don't want to ruin the book for anyone, but he was my next favorite.

Overall, this was an excellent book. Will be watching for new books by Dan Walsh! And if you want a book that is not a lot of romance, this is the book for you! Even a guy will love it:)

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
