Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin was another great book. I have read another series by this author so this book had big shoes to fill and it lived up to everything that I hoped it would. I also love this book because it is my favorite type of historical fiction to read. I love pretty much everything that takes place during WWII. Anyway let’s get back to the review of this book. Loved following along as Mary tries to figure out who is behind all the crazy things that are going on and I also loved following along as Mary & Jim spend so much time together and start to fall in love. I can’t say enough good things about this book and this author. She does an amazing job writing these stories and making you feel like you are there with the characters. If you love historical fiction than make sure you don’t miss this story.
About The Book
Through Waters Deep (Revell, August 2015)
It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war.
Outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. Back on shore, Boston Navy Yard secretary Mary Stirling does her work quietly and efficiently, happy to be out of the limelight. Yet, despite her reserved nature, she never could back down from a challenge. When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is found, 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.
Sarah Sundin takes readers to the tense months before the US entered WWII. Readers will encounter German U-boats and torpedoes, along with the explosive power of true love, in this hopeful and romantic story.
