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.
My thoughts and giveaway:
I loved this book. It took me a couple of chapters to really get sucked in but once I was there I didn’t want to leave and devoured the book.
Mary and Jim are wonderful characters who have things from their past that have held them back.
I could very much relate to Mary and her shyness and not wanting attention, yet she has gifts that do bring attention, she just needs to make sure she is focusing them on bringing glory to God.
Jim is figuring out it’s okay to make bold decisions, he doesn’t need to be afraid if he is walking with Jesus through the deep waters.
I loved how Sarah wove in the scripture reference from the title into the book, beautifully done.
The romance had me on pins and needles. Even though I could guess what was going to happen I still hated it when it did and had to keep reading to see how Sarah would resolve the issue.
The mystery in the book was also well-developed and interesting.
Overall, a wonderful book that has everything I look for in a good read.
