Through the Deep Waters by Sarah Sundin

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.

This book brought out the struggles the American people has with the world conditions around them prior to the United States involvement in WWII.  I didn’t remember from history class that US ships were sunk before Pearl Harbor. 

I did like Jim and Mary’s characters.  Although I did think Mary was a little wimpy when her friend came to town.  Jim was also a little wimpy when he didn’t confront Mary with his feelings.  Otherwise it was a good book and one I would recommend to others.

I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
