From the Vault

This week's book from the Vault is:

Into The Deep by Lauralee Bliss.

From the back cover:

In 1843 Kentucky, Susanna Barnett longs for the finer things in life. Mammoth Cave brings them to her and her family. Not only does the cavern attract curious folks paying top dollar for tours, but its unique atmosphere promises to heal the sick. Surely God Himself etched out this place as a blessing to all men. Jared Edwards has been played the fool. Mammoth Cave's doctor promised miracles for consumption victims. Instead of celebrating recovery with his aunt Mattie, he's burying her and being sent away amid his uncle Dwight's accusations. Driven by guilt, Jared determines to close down the death cave. Will Jared and Susanna's attraction to each other prove more powerful than their connection to Mammoth Cave?

Question of the Day: Though I've ventured down a few caves, I'm not a fan of dank, dark places deep in the earth. So, do you like caves? Are you claustrophobic?


  1. Honestly? I've never been in a cave, and never really thought of going in one. I don't think it would bother me too much, but I wouldn't like sitting in the dark. I'd need a powerful flashlight, and if it's cold in there, I know I'm not staying for long! I think I'd like to go into a cave sometime to see what it's like.

  2. Visited Lurray Caverns in VA. The vaults were immense and the formations incredible. Claustrophobic? Living in a little dollhouse? I don't think so, but I'll get back to you if I ever have an MRI done.

  3. I toured Rushmore Cave on a vacation. It was fun and interesting (and lighted) but I don't have a desire to explore any old cave. Probably because I'm not a fan of bats, snakes or bears!

  4. Never went exploring in any old caves but have visited a few big ones, the kind with a tour guide and guardrails and lights. They are always nice and cool, but darker than dark when they turn the lights off and it seems like they always do. Always glad I went, but always happy to get back out.

  5. I have never been in a cave, but I don't think I would like it much if I couldn't see. :}

    Thanks for the chance to win!


  6. Ooo, I love caves!! Not necessarily the creatures that inhabit such caves, but they are so intriguing! Dark, mysterious, little niches to hideaway in...sounds like fun :)

  7. I've been in a few in north Georgia, but they weren't very deep(thankfully!). That was years ago--now I could NEVER go in one, LOL. My last 3 MRIs had to be the "Open" kind due to my claustrophobia, and even those caused me great anxiety*sigh*. But lots of praying helped me "survive" them! Blessings, Patti Jo
