This romantic mystery/adventure is a time-slip story of a love so powerful it spans several lifetimes. Is it fate that we meet the right one? How do we know? And when we die, is it over?

When Catherine Fitzgerald, an underwater photographer, buys an antique Claddagh ring, she is troubled by nightmares that set her on a path to fulfill a promise of love made centuries before. As she begins to unravel the mystery of the woman who haunts her dreams, she has to come to grips with her own struggle to find true love. Will it be her ex, who still loves her, or the handsome but unavailable marine archaeologist on the dive team?

Set in Provence, Manhattan, and Ireland, this romantic mystery exposes not only two women’s longings, but also the beauty of the deep, where buried treasures tempt salvagers to break the law.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't put it down. I didn’t know what to expect of A CRY FROM THE DEEP, but soon found I was immersed in a mind-tingling mystery of two different times. One event occurred in 1878 off the coast of Killybegs, Donegal Bay, Ireland, when Margaret O’Donnell married James Gallagher after his cargo ship the Alice O’Meary returned from India. Her father gave Margaret her mother’s wedding band to wear. Fast forward to 2010 in Provence, France. Catherine Fitzgerald was working in her lavender fields when she received a phone call from her old boss. He was offering her the opportunity to come back to work as an underwater photographer at National Geographic. She would have to return to New York so her ex-husband could look after their daughter while she photographed the deep-sea dive of an ill-reputed treasure hunter. Her job was to photograph everything during dives and to make sure all recovered items were recorded as required by law. It was a dangerous job, and she hadn’t been back in the water since she had nearly drowned on another job several years before. Once in New York, Catherine, with her ex-husband Richard and their daughter Alex toured a street market where Catherine purchased a peculiar gold ring. Was this ring responsible for the nightmares she started having? Catherine was to work alongside Daniel Costello, a nautical archeologist, who was a very experienced diver and would ease Catherine back into the deep. Daniel was engaged to be married after the salvage project. Was there a connection between the event of 1878 and Catherine in 2010? You’ll just have to read to find out. No spoilers here. Stevan created characters and a story that kept me in my chair all day reading A CRY FROM THE DEEP from beginning to end. The amount of material she researched is mind boggling, but her diligence resulted in a believable story with characters so well developed, I had no trouble visualizing any of them. Before long, I felt I knew everyone personally, and was deeply engrossed in one of the most fascinating tales I’ve ever read. This book absolutely merits 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Cry From The Deep I found this to be an enjoyable love story with a plot involving many components that would make a successful movie. How can you miss, with beautiful people of both sexes, an assignment from National Geographic to photograph an ancient shipwreck off the coast of Ireland, scenes from New York City, lovers previous and future, marital difficulties, and throw in the sinister elements of piracy, ghosts, reincarnation and ancient curses? And a happy ending. All in all a pleasurable read.
