Through Waters Deep centers around Mary and Jim, who actually knew each from high school in Ohio. Now Mary is a Boston Navy Yard secretary and Jim is a naval officer on board the brand-new destroyer the USS Atwood. Their blossoming friendship and his willingness to aid in her "investigation" made the pages fly by. Not to mention that the further into the story I delved the more anxious I became to find out who was behind it all. In typical Sarah Sundin fashion she wrapped up a bit of mystery and a sweet romance into the perfect package!
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.
