Through the Deep Waters

What an inspirational and heartwarming story! Though not everyone will relate to Dinah's background or circumstances, all will be able to understand her pain and yearning for truth and peace- we've all been there (some are now!). Others may relate even closer to Dinah, and if so, this story is definitely for you. 
Each major character in this story is looking for guidance and direction, but they have fear rooted in their circumstances and/or past.
Dinah's awakening to the knowledge of a God who loves her and desires a closer relationship with her despite her past sins and lineage was touching to see and the reminder that no matter what is going on in our lives God will never leave us or forsake us was a comfort. 
Ruthie needed to learn to surrender her will to the Lord and have patience as she waited to discover His plans for her life- and once they were made known to her, to accept them with joy and grow in doing His will.
Content referenced in the back cover synopsis regarding Dinah's "horrible decision" was handled well and without much detail; however, I would not recommend the story for younger girls.
Most of the characters in this story- major and minor- were lovable and fun! 
Kim's novels always leave me encouraged, strengthened, and satisfied.
