ANCHOR IN THE STORM
by Sarah Sundin


Sarah Sundin is the author of seven historical novels,
Sarah Sundin
including Through Waters Deep (Revell, August 2015). Her novella "I'll Be Home for Christmas" in Where Treetops Glisten was a finalist for the 2015 Carol Award, and her novel On Distant Shores was a double finalist for the 2014 Golden Scroll Awards. A mother of three, Sarah lives in California, works on-call as a hospital pharmacist, and teaches Sunday school. Learn more at her website



From the book’s 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?


From Jo:

Book 2 of the Waves of Freedom series didn’t disappoint. This story of Lillian and Arch was a delight to read. Sarah Sundin develops all her characters, not only the hero and heroine, so well that they remain memorable after the last page is turned. Historical detail in this book is excellent.
