I was glad to get a copy of this book because I knew it would probably be good. I had read Walsh's previous book and reviewed it on this blog last year. I enjoyed The Homecoming, so when I heard about The Deepest Waters, I decided to read and review it.
This author reminds me of writers such as Richard Paul Evans and Nicholas Sparks. It is the kind of prose that leaves the reader with a sense of the "rightness" (is that a word?) of all that is good in the world. I think we all need books like this at some time or another, especially when our lives seem so out of control.
I like how Mr. Walsh incorporates the gospel in his stories without being "preachy". Here is one especially good portion from The Deepest Waters:
I can think of no better way of expressing the way of salvation.
There's lots of adventure as well as romance in this book. I recommend it to all who love a good, heartfelt story.
I give The Deepest Waters 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
