Through Water Deep by Sarah Sundin
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.

Here is my review of this Beautiful Pre-WWII Romance:
First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Sarah Sundin and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Through Waters Deep" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
"Through Waters Deep” is another wonderful book and the start of a great new series by Sarah Sundin. I’ve read all of Sarah’s novels and can say with confidence that this woman writes amazing romance as well as wartime historical tales. Her books have made me see my Grandparents as young people. In fact, I’ve given my Grandma all of her books and she loves to reminisce with them.
This story is a pre-WWII romantic mystery that reunites childhood friends Mary Stirling and Ensign Jim Avery when the ship that Jim has been assigned to has been found to have been sabotaged. Mary and Jim work together to solve the mystery and kindle romantic flames.
Sarah Sundin writes such beautiful, sigh-inducing love stories that remind me of classic motion pictures, big band music and romantic notions of a bygone era I’ve only known through history class. “Through Waters Deep” brought a smile to my face, several chuckles to my heart and thankfulness for my relationship with God, Who is at the forefront of this story, and the wonderful man He brought into my life.
