Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin

Nothing slows Lillian Avery down--not her personal challenges and certainly not America's entry into World War II. She finally has a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The demands 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 Lillian has been filling?

As the danger rises on both land and sea, the two must work together to answer that question. But can Arch ever earn Lillian's trust and affection?

This is the second book in this series.  It is not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one.  Which I did.  The characters seemed will thought out.  We were shown the flaws as well as their strong points.  A lot of heroines and hero's are showed to be almost super hero types.  These were just ordinary people. Lillian has had to overcome her handicap of only having one leg.  In the 1940's this was looked down upon and she was not accepted.  Arch had what today we would call PTDS.  Back then you were just looked at as being weak.  Therefore, men just covered it up as best they could.  This is how the drug ring was introduced into the story.  Overall it was a very good story and I would recommend this book to everyone.  I look forward to reading the next story in this series.

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