In a time of sacrifice, what price can one put on true love?

Nothing slows Lillian Avery down–not her personal challenges and certainly not America’s entry into World War II. She finally has a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The demands of her new job energize her. But society boy Ensign Archer Vandenberg’s attentions only annoy–even if he is her brother’s best friend.

During the darkest days of the war, Arch’s destroyer hunts German U-boats in vain as the submarines sink dozens of merchant ships along the East Coast. Still shaken by battles at sea, Arch notices his men also struggle with their nerves–and with drowsiness. Could there be a link to the large prescriptions Lillian has been filling?

As the danger rises on both land and sea, the two must work together to answer that question. But can Arch ever earn Lillian’s trust and affection?

My thoughts and giveaway:

Fans of Sarah will not be disappointed with this newest installment. True to form she has written another great novel set in the beginning of WWII.

This is the second book in this series. We met Arch in the first book. I liked him then and come to like him even more in this book. He tries so hard to break the stereo-type of what a rich kid is. He is also dealing with the after math of his ship going down and the effects that has on him now. Will this ruin his career?

Lillian I loved. She isn’t perfect. You don’t meet too many heroines who have a physical disability. But Lillian does, she’s missing a leg. I love how Sarah portrayed her, still so strong but also dealing with the effects of her disability.

Overall, another great book by Sarah.
