The Deep Six Reviews
A story of hope. This book hit extremely close to home for me, I live and work in a mining community. I consider myself extremely lucky to have never experienced a mining disaster at all or like the one in The Deep Six, but even though this book was a piece of fiction the characters and people involved struck a chord with me. Reading through this beautifully written and inspirational piece of literature, I actually got chills at various parts of the story. I could see the faces, feel the tension, and almost relived what it was like for the families experiencing the horrible miscommunication and unanswered questions regarding the trapped miners as if I was in the town also. The book took a turn I wasn't expecting based on the synopsis, I enjoyed how rather than focusing on the trapped miners, it focused on those left outside and the struggles they were going through in light of the accident that made them reevaluate how they were living their lives.The book was a bit heavy on the "inspirational" feel for me, but that is a personal preference. I thought that the main character who was putting her faith on the line and preaching to others was a very accurate portrayal of a devout miner's wife, so job well done. I also have to commend the author, Rob Cummings on his ability to weave the story together without including stereotypes. Usually I shudder to think how West Virginians are being portrayed in the written word and most times I'm disappointed. Cummings manages to capture all walks of life very well without being critical of a faction of people who are often misjudged. Though I realize the book never comes out and says it, I read in your bio that you are WV born and raised, and seeing as coal is one of our main industries I put two and two together. So from one West Virginian to another, thank you.
I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway. The story is centered around a coal mine collapsing and how the characters "above ground" react throughout the incident. A strong Christian theme runs throughout the book as various characters rely on their faith and religious beliefs to see them through this crisis and help others with lesser or no faith face this crisis. I found it interesting that the book did not deal with the miners story of being trapped, but of their community and how they deal with the situation. There were a lot of grammatical errors.
I won this book as Goodreads book giveaway. Not only I got a signed copy but also a sweet letter from the writer Rob Cummings."The Deep Six" is a story about a small mining community and how it comes together when a explosion in the mine left some of the miners trapped. It was an interesting book that gives us insight into the life of a small community, their lives and problems and when a tragedy happens how they reacted and tried to solve the problem through courage, resilience and faith.
Most of the time when you read about a mining accident it focuses on the trapped miners. This book was quite a change from that as it's focus was on what was happening with the families ABOVE the surface! It addresses how they managed thru the crisis by leaning on their faith as well as each other.This is really a good story, and an easy read, that is inspirational to say the least. I really love this author and cannot wait for his next book to come out!! You will enjoy this book!
A great tale about how the people of Black Rock come together in the face of disaster and overcome their fears with love, humor, forgiveness, and above all, faith. The character of Joyce Pennington is an inspiration to her family and friends and the glue that keeps many from falling apart.
Christian-themed, fast-paced, multiple story lines all ending in a satisfying conclusion. Looking forward to seeing more from this author:)
This book had a great story behind it with a cute, feel-good ending. However, the grammatical errors took some of the magic out of the story-telling.
