About the book: 
Through Waters Deep
 (Revell, August 2015)

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.

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.

My Thoughts:
Sundin's Through Waters Deep was just plain fun to read!  I absolutely loved Jim and Mary.  Sundin wrote with the perfect balance of a budding romance, intrigue and mystery.  She captures the WWII era with good characterization and dialogue as well as description of the times and places affected during the war.  Sundin has started off her new Waves Of Freedom series with a real winner.  I can't wait to see what comes next!
