Through Water Deep

by Sarah Sundin

through waters deep

War is coming. Can love carry them through the rough waters that lie ahead?

It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war. Handsome and outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. On shore, Jim encounters Mary Stirling, a childhood friend who is now an astute and beautiful Boston Navy Yard secretary.

When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is discovered, 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.

“Fascinating history, interesting location, touching romance–Sarah Sundin packs it all in this page-turning story. Readers are sure to enjoy living this stirring WWII-era adventure.”–Ann H. Gabhart, author of Love Comes Home and The Innocent

Through Waters Deep reeled me in from the start. Endearing characters combine with intrigue and mystery in a tale that begs to be read in record time.”–Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series

“Sarah Sundin is a gifted novelist. Bottom line–this book is perfect for lovers of WWII romances and mysteries that would give Nancy Drew a run for her money.”–Cara Putman, award-winning author of Shadowed by Grace and Where Treetops Glisten.


Sarah Sundin writes another historical fiction with detailed scenes full of interesting information in each scene in the book. Jim and Mary knew each other earlier in their life, but never really paid any attention to one another, but this time was different. They ended up working together to solve a crime, and spending time together created an attraction between the two, though it was slow and subdued. For me, it was difficult to get interested in this book, it took me probably half of the book before I really wanted to finish it. Not normal for a Sarah Sundin book, but this one just wasn’t as good as her others. But if you enjoy WWII stories, you will enjoy this one too!

On Distant Shores is one of those books that you don’t want to end. Georgie and Hutch both had a fiancé back home, but they decided they could be friends. And that friendship brings out the attraction between the two of them. I was definitely different reading a story where both main characters have someone they love back home. But Sarah Sundin pulls if off and writes a story that will stay with you for a long while!


I absolutely loved reading On Distant Shores. Anyone who loves World War II fiction would love this one as well! The historical information about the War era was amazing. Everything is so detailed, so vividly described that I have a clear insight about what the people in that era in history went through, and how they lived. And in a time of war, fighting and death, it was comforting to read about the romances that did happen during that time.  Sarah Sundin is truly the Queen of World War II historical romance fiction. If you enjoy historical fiction, and WWII stories, you will love this one too!

With Every Letter

By Sarah Sundin

About the Book:
Book 1 in the Wings of the Nightingale series

Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met–even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence–he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years. As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts? Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing–and true love.

Keep the letters coming! That’s how it was for Lt. Mellie Blake. Mellie started writing letters to an anonymous soldier after he supervisor set up letter writing between the nurses and soldiers help  build morale. She was so glad to finally have a friend, one she could actually tell everything to. After all, they would never meet, so what did it matter? And Lt. Tom MacGilliver had really never had anyone he could honestly talk to, and was thrilled to be writing to this military nurse, the one he named Annie.

My interest was captured with the letter writing. I thoroughly enjoyed the contact between these two people who quickly became friends. I grew to love both Mellie and Tom as the story unfolded and they were both soon stationed very close to each other. Tension started building because neither thought they would ever meet the other, and now they were so close. Would meeting destroy the close friendship they two now have? Or will we see a fast budding romance that will sweep us off our feet? I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy of Sarah Sundin’s new novel “With Every Letter” for a wonderful enjoyable read.

In a time of peril, can they find the courage to confront their fears and embrace a love that lasts?

When her husband becomes a casualty of the war in the Pacific, Helen Carlisle throws herself into volunteering for the war effort to conceal her feelings. But keeping up appearances as the grieving widow of a hometown hero is taking its toll. Soon something is going to give.

Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit. His stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life–and a convenient excuse to ignore his deepest fear. When the beautiful Helen catches his eye and captures his heart, he is determined to win her hand.

But when Ray and Helen are called upon to step out in faith and put their reputations and their lives on the line, can they meet the challenges that face them? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

Filled with drama, daring, and all the romance of the WWII era, Blue Skies Tomorrow is the captivating final book in the popular Wings of Glory series.

My Review

Helen Carlisle is now a widow, after her husband was killed in the military. But she wasn’t the grieving widow everyone thought she was. In fact, she was glad her husband was gone, because of his abuse, which no one would ever believe. That is until Ray came upon the scene, and he figured it out, to which Helen denied that anything bad happened between she and Jim. No one could find out about the abuse, because Jim was so nice and sweet around everyone else, not one would believe Helen. She was just a cripple after all, and the way she stumbled around caused all of her accidents, so Jim told everyone.

This is my first book by Sarah Sundin, I haven’t read the other books in this series, but I still enjoyed this one! I like that the author deals with spousal abuse in this book, something that truly needs to be dealt with. And just like in the book, the abuser blames the one he’s abusing. Helen was blessed that Ray found out, but then he left her for a while, not helping. And it was a double blessing when she found a way to leave her in-laws house and the abuse from Jim’s father. I hope anyone reading this book that is dealing with an abusive situation will realize that there is help, and go find it!

I also liked Ray and Helen. Ray was so gracious and kind, wanting to help Helen, even if she didn’t want his help at first. He loved the Lord, which was evident in the way he lived. Helen was so sweet, and she wanted to raise her son the right way, not abusing the women in his life. Her self confidence was trampled on more than once by jerks that call themselves men. But I am glad there was a happy ending, and Helen was able to have a happy life, away from abuse and critical, hateful things said about her handicap condition.
