Anchor in the Storm – Sarah Sundin
Anchor in the Storm is book number 2 in the Waves of Freedom series written by Sarah Sundin. Archer Vandenberg has completed his studies at the Naval Academy. He has survived a horrible U-Boat attack when he enjoys some time off at his best friend’s home. On leave he meets Jim’s sister, the lovely – if somewhat prickly – Lillian. Lillian has trust issues with men so she doesn’t fall under the good-looking rich boy spell that Arch is used to bestowing over women everywhere! Lillian is used to men overlooking her because of her prostatic leg. Arch finds this extremely unusual – and appealing.
Boston becomes Lillian’s home where she works as a pharmacist. Arch is based out of Boston. They both discover unusual things happening around them, and they team up to solve the mystery. Lillian starts to overcome her distrust of men, while facing a dangerous situation.
I liked the combination of history, mystery and romance. I have person reasons why I liked this book -- my dad was in the Merchant Marines during WWII. He told many stories that always included, “We didn’t know if we were going to make it back home, we were prepared because we knew our job was important.” The Merchant Marines lost more ships than the Military because the enemy wanted to destroy the supply chain. My dad then enlisted in the Navy where he spent the next 20 years of his life.
Read this book! Buy it! You will love it!
