Satisfying and Heartwarming

Where does Through the Deep Waters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dina - I identified with her struggle to accept love and forgiveness.

What does Kate Turnbull bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She had a gentleness in her voice that made the story inviting and allowed you to open your heart easily to the characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Finding Favor and Forgiveness in Place of Fear and Failure

Any additional comments?

The author made the struggle real, delving into the true emotions that come as a result of tragic circumstances. As in real life, I wanted relief for Dina to come sooner, yet the timing was true to life in that it portrayed a journey where God met her, in His perfect timing.

Reminds me a little of Hosea.

This was my second book by this author, Kim Vogel Sawyer. The stories have been good, somewhat deep and meaningful, but there are some situations in them that I do not like to read, hear, or see in books or movies. This story includes sexual assault, and even though the act is not graphic, the violence leading up to it still scarred my mind and emotions. Had I known in advance, I would not have read it. That being said..., I do have a deep spiritual joy to take-away from this young woman's sweet journey to God, and a deepening perspective of forgiveness. The narrator was fair. Not a deterrent. (Reviewed by David's wife.)
