A DEEP DIVIDE by Kimberley Woodhouse - A Reader's Opinion
A Reader's Opinion
Kimberley Woodhouse transports readers to the Grand Canyon in A DEEP DIVIDE, a historical novel filled with stunning landscapes, excellent research, sweet romance, and a deeper message that translates off the page.
The determined and intriguing heroine, Emma Grace, has spent years keeping a secret, and while her past experiences have led her to El Tovar as a Harvey Girl, she remains true to herself. When a mystery ensues, and all Emma Grace has strived to build in her life is threatened, she must use her wits to either remain hidden or confront her past.
I enjoyed learning about moments in history I knew little about before reading A DEEP DIVIDE and appreciate the author's ability to seamlessly combine fact and fiction. There are strong religious elements in this book, and while at times they overpowered other parts of the story, the author did a wonderful job in conveying realistic struggles with powerful faith. I look forward to reading the next book in Woodhouse's Secrets of the Canyon series.
A Deep Divide
With her past behind her, she has nothing--and everything--to lose.
After being kidnapped as a child, heiress Emma Grace McMurray has seen firsthand the devastation that greed causes in the world, and she wants nothing to do with it. When she discovers her father has offered her up as a bargaining chip to expand his empire, she disappears into the night. Determined to stay hidden, even if it means always looking over her shoulder, she finds herself working as a Harvey Girl at the El Tovar Hotel.
When Ray Watkins arrives at the hotel on business, he is immediately captivated by the beauty of the Grand Canyon. Though his fame-seeking father aims to lure new investors to the Arizona Territory, Ray dreams of one day taking over the family business and doing good with the profits.
Ray immediately admires Emma Grace, and though an attraction begins to form, she can't let go of the deep-rooted fear that he's just like every other wealthy man she's known. When suspicious activity follows Emma Grace and Ray to the El Tovar, they are pulled into a mystery that stirs up their worst fears. And as shocking revelations come to light, they are left to question all they thought to be true.
