Flee ye, turn back, dwell deep, O inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him, the time that I will visit him. Jeremiah 49:8
Once again, Amy LeFeuvre has written a masterpiece! LeFeuvre truly possesses a literary skill and depth of understanding that reaches the developing passions of young adults, the youngest child, and the insights of the aged and wise. Dwell Deep is the story of a blossoming young girl who has recently lost her earthly shelter and comforts—only to gain something far richer.
Young in years and young in faith, Margaret Thorn must face the continuous tests of compromise, criticism, and censure. Yet she is no coward in the face of such social pressures. Her favorite phrase is “dwell deep,” a sweet reminder that calls her soul to refuge. In a house of gaiety that leads ladies to “lose their heads…and hearts,” Miss Thorn refuses to wade into its flow. She knows that riding the waves of pleasure, even innocent pleasures, will eventually pull her into the undertow.
But she quickly finds that her convictions must be tempered with submission to her authorities. This story begs the question: how does one honor God if they are dishonoring those in authority over them? How does one balance convictions without leaving behind the bitter taste of prudish hypocrisy? Are convictions more important than peace and unity?
It is in the midst of these difficult circumstances that Margaret finds herself faced daily with choices that will serve to form the foundation of her character.
Reader, be warned! You are about to enter into a story where you will find yourself vicariously experiencing some of the most overlooked and underestimated tensions of life—tensions that we all must face if we are to overcome our fears and grow in our faith. May we, after reading this powerful story, learn that our greatest strength and resolve only comes when we “Dwell Deep!”
