Review: Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin PLUS All Hands on Deck Giveaway

Anchor in the StormAnchor in the Storm is book two in the Waves of Freedom series, however, it can be enjoyed even if you have not read book one. However, it was fun to reconnect with some characters from the first book!

 

I loved this story so much! Lillian and Arch were great characters and I loved the way Arch pursued Lillian, whether it was outright flirting or having to back off and just be friends. These two characters were definitely complex! Lillian had a lot of baggage due to her disability and the way she had been treated in a previous romantic relationship. Arch was not used to being liked or loved for the man he was, rather than for his extreme wealth. He had some very big difficulties to try to overcome and although it was rough at times, it was so extremely interesting to watch his journey.

 

Anchor in the Storm had a great mystery running through it. Lillian and Arch both played big parts in discovering the villains and working to bring things right. The romantic tension was wonderful and I truly felt like I was back in the midst of WWII as I read. I am really looking forward to book three in the series!

Anchor in the Storm

Anchor in the Storm (Revell, May 2016)

One plucky female pharmacist + one high-society naval officer = romance-and danger

For plucky Lillian Avery, America’s entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The challenges 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 for sedatives Lillian has filled? The two work together to answer that question, but can Arch ever earn Lillian’s trust and affection?

Sarah Sundin brings World War II to life, offering readers an intense experience they won’t soon forget.
