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.

Sarah Sundin is one of my new favorite authors in the historical fiction genre for Christian literature and I have had the absolute pleasure of reading a number of her previous writings and enjoyed each one. I was very much looking forward to reading Through Deep Waters and I was absolutely not disappointed one bit. From the amazingly developed characters, to a plot that flowed nicely and a book that kept my attention throughout, Sarah Sundin has nailed it with Through Waters Deep. I love WWII novels and this is absolutely one of my favorites in that genre. You will not be disappointed by this book at all, including the stunning cover!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
