Sarah Sundin in her new book, “Anchor in the Storm book coverAnchor in the Storm” Book Two in the Waves of Freedom series published by Revell takes us into the lives of Lillian Avery and Archer Vandenberg.

From the back cover:  In a time of sacrifice, what price can one put on true love?

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?

Let me state that I think this is Historical Fiction at its finest. America has entered WWII and there are U-boats off our coast. No doubt about it Sara Sundin really knows how to tell a story. Lillian is a Pharmacist and Arch is an Ensign aboard a Destroyer where the men are falling asleep. Ms. Sundin has given us an interesting, highly suspenseful thriller with sabotage and mystery there. Ms. Sundin has provided us with a wild ride that will keep you flipping pages to see what will happen next. And did I mention that this is a romance? “Anchor in the Storm” is an exciting book. Ms. Sundin has done it again and I recommend this book highly.
