It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war. {{Book Review}} Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

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 Review*
In my opinion, Sarah Sundin is by far the best WWII fiction writer I have ever read. Sundin makes her readers feel as if they were in the story, & "Through Waters Deep" was definitely no exception.

I absolutely love this book. I literally could NOT put this book down. I really love these characters & at times I felt that they were real people. 

I love the storyline of Through Waters Deep. 

I don't usually give a book five stars, but I have done so on occasion . This book is one that deserves 5 stars(and more). If you are like me, & love WWII, mysteries, or romance, then this is the book for you!
