The Story:
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:
Sarah Sundin's novels never disappoint. Her latest novel, set during the days preceding US involvement in World War II, is the start of what promises to be another great series. With a sweet, handsome hero and a shy but curious heroine with Nancy Drew like tendencies this book takes a more suspenseful turn than Sundin's previous books.

Mary Stirling is a secretary that reminds me a little of Marvel's Agent Carter. She's not nearly as sassy and outspoken as Peggy, but she has a curiosity and heart for justice that make her likeable. Jim is a naval officer whose ship has come under fire -- from someone on the inside. On board sabotage paired with the high tension all over the globe, made Through Waters Deep the most dramatic story yet from Ms. Sundin. The romance was probably my favorite of her's just because there was no instant attraction, no He's-so-cute-I'm-so-in-love-I-can't-handle-it-right-now heroines. I thought it was a well-written love story, with even pacing.

Through Waters Deep, is a nice historical romance for fans of Christian fiction and suspense. Fans of World War II inspirational fiction are almost certain to love this sweet read.
