I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
Through the Deep Waters by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Synopsis: Born to an unloving prostitute in a popular Chicago brothel, timid seventeen-year-old Dinah Hubley was raised amidst the secrets held in every dark, grimy room of her home. Anxious to escape, Dinah pursues her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl, waiting tables along the railroad in an upscale hotel. But when she finds out she isn't old enough, her only option is to accept a job as a chambermaid at the Clifton Hotel in Florence, Kansas. Eager to put everything behind her, Dinah feels more worthless than ever, based on a single horrible decision she made to survive.
My review: I wanted to read this book because I have read a little about the Harvey Girls and wanted to hear the story of someone who wanted to become one. Dinah's story was an emotional one to read about. Each of the characters were so well developed that I felt as if I knew them personally. This book was so well written and grabbed my interest so well that I read it quickly - in just a weekend. Kim did a very good job with her historical research for this book. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
