Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anchor in the Storm is the second book in the Waves of Freedom series by Sarah Sundin. I enjoyed discovering what happened to the characters from her first book. In this one, Lillian Avery makes her mark as a female pharmacist and has a physical handicap causing some to doubt her efficiency and ability to do her job. She’s a maverick in her family and sets high standards for herself. When she meets her brother’s friend and co-officer, Archer Vandenberg, she sees a man with an ego and his nose in the air. Archer is mending his heart and psyche with no room for anyone in his life. His naval career remains important even though he is struggling with fears from a previous bombing on his ship. The two have many obstacles to overcome as they make their way through the changes the war brings. In the midst of their dilemmas, people around them are being killed mysteriously. Suspense, faith, and romance bring this novel together in a delicious way. I highly respect the research the author has done to make this novel authentic to the World War II period. In fact, Sarah Sundin has several series set in this time in history so check them out. I was captivated from the moment I started reading and hope you will put this book on your “to be read” list!
I received a copy of Anchor in the Storm from NetGalley for my honest review.
