Don’t you love a book that draws you in and doesn’t let you go? That’s how I felt reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s new book Through the Deep Waters. I picked it up because I am interested in the Harvey House girls. While Dinah Hubley isn’t old enough to work as a server, she does work in Clifton Hotel as a chambermaid and has ambitions to join the ranks as a Harvey House girl as soon as she turns eighteen.
When a handsome local chicken farmer, Amos Ackerman, takes notice of her, she has to make some difficult decisions about her future. Above all else, is making sure nobody finds out about her past and the terrible thing she did.
Kim Sawyer has a gift of weaving a tale set in history and drawing the reader into it. I hated when I had to put the book down to do things that had to get accomplished. Instead I wanted to slip into Dinah and Amos’ world until I came to the final page…then I didn’t want to leave. 🙂
