THE DEEPEST WATERS is the third book by award-winning author, Dan Walsh. I was instantly captivated by this strong story of a strong woman and a hopeful man, and I was moved to tears at times by the story line. Mr. Walsh creates strong characters, believable plots, and setting, as well as a writing style that grips the reader.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading THE DEEPEST WATERS and highly recommend this book for a great historical fiction. You will not be disappointed. $14.99. 300 pages.
