Book Review: Anchor in the Storm

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

One plucky female pharmacist + one high-society naval officer = romance-and danger

For plucky Lillian Avery, America's entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The challenges 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 for sedatives Lillian has filled? The two work together to answer that question, but can Arch ever earn Lillian's trust and affection?

Sarah Sundin brings World War II to life, offering readers an intense experience they won't soon forget.

About the author:

Sarah Sundin is the author of Through Waters Deep, as well as Wings of the Nightingale and the Wings of Glory series. A graduate of UC San Francisco School of Pharmacy, she works on call as a hospital pharmacist. During WWII, her grandfather served as a pharmacist's mate (medic) in the Navy and her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force. Sarah lives in California.

My Opinion

It must really be the month of amazing books being released because I got to read another favorite author's new book this week and this one was by Sarah Sundin! I LOVE her series about WWII and the Wings of Nightingale is so interesting! I always wanted to be in the Navy and, since I never did, I live vicariously through her books and I have learned so much in her books!

Anchor in the Storm was filled with mystery, love, romance, and history and I couldn't put it down - I believe I read it all in one day - it was THAT GOOD! Sarah Sundin is so talented and now I have to wait around for her new book and the wait might just kill me....

If you haven't read any books from Sarah Sundin, you need to pick up all her books to read this summer! You won't want to put them down and Anchor in the Storm is no exception!
