BOOK REVIEW | “Anchor in the Storm” by Sarah Sundin

An exceptional progression of the series!


Not that I’m surprised… not even a little. Every book I have read by Sarah Sundin has had several common threads – fantastic plot development, marvelous character development, and exceptional story-telling!

Anchor in the Storm is NO different. It is a wonderful second story in this series.

Sarah brings WWII to life for her readers!

I – for one – love it!

I love the intrigue! I love the friction! I love the romance!

Sarah not only gives us a look at the tension on this side of the Atlantic during WWII – she links it to a much larger mystery that has global ramifications.

More about Anchor in the Storm:

One plucky female pharmacist + one high-society naval officer = romance—and danger

For plucky Lillian Avery, America’s entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The challenges 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 for sedatives Lillian has filled? The two work together to answer that question, but can Arch ever earn Lillian’s trust and affection?

Sarah Sundin brings World War II to life, offering readers an intense experience they won’t soon forget.

“Through Waters Deep” by Sarah Sundin | Book 1 of the Waves of Freedom series!

Another triumph from Sarah Sundin!


Not that I’m surprised… not even a little. I have high expectations every time I pick up a book by Sarah – and I’ve not yet been disappointed!


Through Waters Deep  is getting rave reviews… and it’s no wonder.

Aside from the fact that the story starts off with… well, not with a bang, but almost… the added mystery aspect is a clear winner!

I know I love it!

It’s like Nancy Drew has stepped into history!

Sarah skillfully shows us the tension that existed on this side of the Atlantic during WWII. Jim and Mary are in a unique situation and with tensions rising abroad, many might have forgotten about the stress WWII put on the people at home.

Sarah expertly takes us through espionage and sabotage… a very personal war right here on U.S. soil, using our main characters Mary and Jim.

Jim is a seemingly average handsome young officer – but there are depths to him that Mary has a talent for bringing to the surface. It doesn’t hurt either that Mary has a clever wit and a sharp mind. She may be a bit of a shrinking violet but when push comes to shove, she definitely does the unexpected!

The romantic portion of the story is very well done too.

I won’t spoil it for you but it’s not your typical guy sees girl, guy is attracted, girl is attracted, romance ensues… but then Sarah’s romances never fit neatly into a mold – which I LOVE! Life doesn’t fit into a mold so it’s much more realistic that way!

More from Sarah about Through Waters Deep:

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 USSAtwood.

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.
