From Back of Book:
War is coming. Can love carry them through the rough waters that lie ahead?
It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war. Handsome and outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. On shore, Jim encounters Mary Stirling, a childhood friend who is now an astute and beautiful Boston Navy Yard secretary.
When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is discovered, Jim and Mary must work together to uncover the culprit. A bewildering maze of suspects emerges, and Mary is dismayed to find that even someone close to her is under suspicion. With the increasing pressure, Jim and Mary find that many new challenges--and dangers--await them.
I must admit that I become more and more of a fan of Sarah Sundin with each new book she releases. Her newest book, Through Deep Waters is set in the Boston Navy Yard in the Spring of 1941, prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Ms. Sundin always does extensive research and always lets her readers know in her Author's Note at the end what things are based on fact and what is fiction. With historical accuracy she takes her readers on a journey back in time when America was at odds with each other. Some wanted to help England in the war but others did not. Ms. Sundin brings the emotional stress of the time to life in this book.
I realized half way through the book that while I pictured Mary as the model on the cover, I pictured a younger Jim Caviezel as Ensign Jim Avery. These two characters made me fall in love with them at the very beginning. They were so believable and endearing the reader can't help but love them.
With the stress of the possibility of war, strange things are going on at the Boston Navy Yard which has piqued the interest of Mary Stirling a secretary at the naval yard. This mystery thread was woven throughout the unveiling of a beautiful love story.
Through Waters Deep is Ms. Sundin's first book in the "Waves of Freedom" series. I believe the second book in the series is entitled Anchor in the Storm and it is scheduled to release in the Summer of 2016. I can hardly wait! I loved this book, and to be honest, it is now my favorite book of Sarah Sundin's and the best book I have read all year.
On a 5-Star scale - 5 HUGE Stars!!!!!
