Through Waters Deep (Waves of Freedom, #1) by Sarah Sundin



It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war. Outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. Back on shore, Boston Navy Yard secretary Mary Stirling does her work quietly and efficiently, happy to be out of the limelight. Yet, despite her reserved nature, she never could back down from a challenge. When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is found, 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.

My Review

First the beautiful cover to this book made me want to pick it up, and once I turned the first page I was hooked. Now I have to wait another year for the second book in this series, and this one is still lingering with me, and will for a long time.
We are at the Boston Navy Yard, and a young stenographer Mary Stirling, is busy taking shorthand notes about conversations she over hears, will these help the FBI when sabotage begins to happen? She is also reunited with her high school friend, and now naval officer Ensign Jim Avery, he is also at the naval yard and begins to help Mary with her spying.
Jim is also on the USS Atwood, a fictional ship, but made me think that this is what would be what was happening to our sailors in 1941, and as we progress through the year. There is also a budding romance between these two, but all I could think of was December when everyone’s life was about to change. Jim had a high school crush on Quintessa, and she was Mary’s best friend, so when she arrives in Boston things change drastically between Mary and Jim.
I loved this story and the mystery that surround the happenings at the shipyard, two women wanting the same man, and then the arrests, and attempted murders. We also have ship sinking’s, and you won’t know who or whom to trust. You don’t want to miss this one!
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
