“Through the Deep Waters” by Kim Vogel Sawyer, book review
Dinah has always felt like she was alone. Raised in a brothel, the daughter of a harlot, she lived under that shame. To care for her dying mother, the brothel owner sells her to a wealthy business man. After her mother dies, Dinah accepts a job as a chambermaid for the Clifton Hotel in Florence, Kansas. There she tries to make a new life for herself.
She is quickly accepted by her roommate, Ruthie, and a local chicken farmer, Amos. But she also encounters problems and suffers from night terrors from her one night of shame. Ruthie is jealous of Dinah, because of things she “thinks” she knows about her past in Chicago. But Ruthie is able to lead Dinah to a saving knowledge in the forgiveness of Jesus.
This is a wonderful story of love, forgiveness and courage. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading another book about Dinah and Amos.
