Review: Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin



About the book:
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:


Through Waters Deep was another great read from Sarah Sundin! It started a little slow for me and didn't grab my attention as fast as some of her other books, but it was still so good and the ending made me absolutely love the book!

I liked how the romance was gradual and of course the setting was great. There were a couple scenes that were nerve-wracking, as you didn't know what was going to happen and if things were going to turn out okay.

I can't wait to read the next book in the Waves of Freedom series, which is about Jim's sister (who we learned a little bit about in Through Waters Deep), and I definitely recommend this book to fans of historical books. A great read!
