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 USS Atwood. 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.
Filled with adventure, mystery, and, of course, romance, Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin was very good. I can’t say that it what my favorite book by Sarah Sundin, but I did like it!
The one thing that wasn’t exactly my favorite was that Jim wouldn’t admit his feelings!!! Dude, just tell Quintessa that you like Mary, not her! That was the only reason that I didn’t really like the book. Everything else was great!!
I really liked the mystery part of the story! Super intriguing! I could not wait until I found out what character was doing the sabotaging!
Reading about and in this era is wonderful because it is different from the other historical fiction eras. It isn’t the Victorian era but it isn’t the modern era. It is in between everything!
Because of my excitement to read the next books in the Waves of Freedom series, I will be posting a review on Anchor in the Storm soon. Even though it may seem early, I got the book early, and I must thank Sarah Sundin for hosting the giveaway in which I won Anchor in the Storm. As for the third book, I will have to wait for that.
Now for my final rating of Through Waters Deep, I would give this book 3 stars!
