Through Waters Deep (Review)
This review is for the book "Through Waters Deep" by Sarah Sundin. This book is the first book in the Waves of Freedom series. This novel is set in the year 1941. America could go to war at any moment. Jim Avery is a new naval officer, and in his duties he sees Mary Stirling, who was a friend of his in high school. Mary is working as a secretary for naval officers.
Soon, there is evidence of sabotage on a destroyer. Mary is suspicious and begins her own secret investigation. Soon, Jim is in on the investigation too. Mary takes precise notes without being noticed and is able to get information to the FBI. Jim and Mary grow quite close during this time. In fact, both feel that they are falling in love, but they are scared to tell the other. One day, after Jim ships out, his old crush comes back into town. It creates a love triangle that either Jim or Mary is going to have to break through.
This story is full of intrigue, mystery, and romance. I enjoyed the historical aspect of this novel. The parts where Jim was at sea were exciting to me. I really liked the characters in this book a lot. I would love to read more in this series as they come out.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
