A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all in Kim Vogel Sawyer's Through the Deep Waters.

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?

Heart-tugging story about a Harvey Girl. by J. Augustine on 8/17/14
Rating

Through The Deep Waters was my introduction to Kim Vogel Sawyer's books, and honestly, I'm surprised I haven't picked them up before.

One of the things that made me pick up this book is the Harvey Girl theme. Ever since I watched the old Judy Garland movie The Harvey Girls, I have really enjoyed reading stories about them. In a day and age where waitressing was NOT respectable, the Harvey Girls WERE respectable young women. In many ways they pioneered the profession for young women today.

An emotional book, Through The Deep Waters is a story that most of us can relate to in one way or another. This isn't just Dinah's story but it is also Amos's and Ruth's, each of them having much to learn about God's love, forgiveness, friendship, and true love.

This is a well-told story and I found it to be very emotionally compelling. It not only entertains but leaves you contemplating your own life, and where you need both forgiveness and to forgive.

As I read the book, it faintly reminded me of the Biblical Hosea and Gomer. I have no idea if the author intended it but personally I liked that little thread running through the story.

Fans of Kim Vogel Sawyer, historical fiction, or Harvey Girl stories will love Through The Deep Waters.

(I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are entirely my own.)
