Anchor In The Storm By: Sarah Sundin

Back of the Book

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.

My Thoughts

 Sarah Sundin has given me a history lesson I won't soon forget, and can't wait to start again.   With her vast knowledge of WW II she has developed a story so full of intrigue and mystery I could not put it down. Lillian is such a lovable, spunky and passionate person but with a broken heart not easily repaired and Arch has returned with scars of his own.  Lillian and Arch's personalities are polar opposites, but opposites do attract.  Being the second book in the Waves of Freedom series there are many return characters that add another layer of depth to the plot so you will want to read it first to truly enjoy this book.  

I was given this book free from Revell publishing for my honest review.
