Publisher's Description

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.

Sarah Sundin takes readers to the tense months before the US entered WWII. Readers will encounter German U-boats and torpedoes, along with the explosive power of true love, in this hopeful and romantic story.

    The reluctant heroine, Mary Stirling, has read many Nancy Drew books. Mary finds herself immersed in mystery at the Boston Naval Yard prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. She also develops romantic feelings towards an old acquaintance, Jim Avery, who is an ensign in the U.S. Navy.

    This is a sweet romantic novel, set in the historical and beautiful city of Boston. The characters are charming, and there is much to celebrate within the pages.

    This is Book One in the Waves of Freedom series.

    Another wonderful historical novel by Ms. Sundin!!

    I have loved and dearly enjoyed each novel I pick up by Ms. Sundin. Through Waters Deep is no exception! Ms. Sundin skillfully transports us back in time to Boston in 1941. If there was one thing I appreciated the most about this novel it would be the superb attention to historic detail. Whenever I began reading I lost all track of time and what was going on around me, I was totally immersed into the time period. The details Ms. Sundin includes about the navy are a testament to the thorough research she accomplished. She made everything easy to understand.

    Additionally, I loved the saboteur plot! I felt like I was right alongside Mary, trying to work out the mystery myself. Those of you who know me, know how much I enjoy a good mystery and this one met my approval. Without this, the story would have lacked something. I thought it was well done and the conclusion satisfactory.

    I admired the way both Jim and Mary grew over time. From beginning to end, they had changed in a positive way for the better. This book has not been a disappointment! Rather, it's another shining gem among Ms. Sundin's other novels. I'm eager to start Anchor in the Storm! If you have a propensity for World War II novels, or if you simply love a good historical read, this book is for you. :-)

    I checked this book out at my local library. No review required!

    Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin is the first book in the Waves of Freedom series. Mary Stirling works as a secretary at the Boston Navy Yard in 1941. She has been working there for the last four years after moving away from her hometown of Vermilion, Ohio. Mary has just finished setting up for the launch of a new ship when she spots Jim Avery. Jim is from Vermilion (they grew up together). Mary liked Jim in high school, but Jim was infatuated with Marys best friend, Quintessa Beaumont (who was dating someone else). They start talking while they watch the launch ceremonies. After the champagne bottle is stroke against the ship, there is a commotion. Someone had changed out the champagne for gasoline (sabotage). This gets Mary excited. She loves mysteries and this gives her an opportunity to investigate a real crime. Mary and Jim start spending time together along with his friend, Arch and his girlfriend. They share a kiss just before Jim is shipped out on the destroyer Atwood. While Jim is away, Quintessa moves to town with the intentions of dating Jim (poor Mary). On the Atwood more sabotage is discovered. What is going on? Mary is determined to find out. To find out who is behind the sabotage and what happens to Jim and Mary, you will have to read Through Waters Deep.

    Through Waters Deep was a good story. I was drawn in immediately. The book is a little predictable (the romance especially), but the novel is well-written. I enjoyed the characters and could relate to them (especially Mary). I liked that the book contained a mystery. We get to follow Mary through her investigation into the sabotage. I give Through Waters Deep 4 out of 5 stars. The next book in the series will tell the story of Jims friend, Arch Vandenberg (Anchor in the Storm April).

    I received a complimentary copy of Through Waters Deep from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    In her usual fashion, Sundin has put together another (her third) romantic World War II series, of which this is the first. I particularly identify with this series set in the place of my birth, Boston. Sundin does an excellent job researching the settings for her books, and incorporating many landmarks into the story. This book is no exception.

    Through Waters Deep includes a mystery of sabotage (not historical) in the Naval shipyard, which adds an exciting twist. The contrast between the main character, Mary Stirling, and that of the shipyard environment was extreme, but other than that the story was believable, and the mystery hard to solve.

    I especially enjoyed the descriptions of Park Street Church and Dr. Ockenga's preaching. My mother attended Park Street Church after the war when she lived in Boston. I wonder if she sang in the choir with Mary?

    The parallel stories of the main characters, Mary and Jim, and the inner struggles of each stemming from childhood experiences, is brilliant. I am in awe of a writer who successfully weaves so many pieces together without dropping any thing. Beautifully done, and I can't wait to read the next two books in the series.

    Thank you once again, Sarah, for another great read!

    I highly recommend this squeaky clean and tactful romance to all readers. Sundin's books are not quick reads, lending themselves to plenty of technical understanding (in this case of a Navy destroyer) and historical description woven into the story. And most importantly the growth in her characters' hearts in their walk with God, and of God's care for them.

    I borrowed this from my local library.

    Through Waters Deep is the very impressive first book I have read by Sarah Sundin; it is also first in her latest series, Waves of Freedom, set during WWII with characters actively involved. There are many things I was unaware of, including the varied feelings about sending our military to Europe to fight, the large number of women and non-military employees working at the Naval Yard, and sabotage to our equipment by our people. It is a sweeping novel of romance, intense suspense, and mystery. Mary Stirling is a young woman from the Midwest who has worked in the office at the Yard for four years and enjoys it. She chooses to not be in a spotlight in any area of her life, as she does not want pride to ever run her life again.

    Mary and an old classmate ran into each other; Ensign Jim Brady and his friend Archer would soon be going out onboard ship. Mary and Jim accompanied Arch and his fianc when their schedules fit. Mary remembered how Jim had, and seemingly still has, unrequited love for Marys best friend Quintessa, so she had no illusions that there would be more than friendship between them. Jim, knowing he would be leaving soon, also wanted only Christian friendship. Yet they grew closer with each passing week, neither wanting to admit their feelings.

    Sabotage began to occur at the Naval Yard, including a bomb placed on one of the ships that fortunately was discovered before detonation. Other areas included work not passing inspection even when done according to plan. Mary, a huge fan of early Nancy Drew mysteries of her high school days, was in a unique position to gather information as she collected or distributed reports around the yard, especially listening to the various factions the workers fell into. She became a target when some of those men discovered her role, and Jims ship encountered danger from Nazis on the high seas, it became a pulse-pounding, exciting novel like none other.

    Mary and Jim are very well described; they are highly likable, honorable and share their faith in Christ. We learn a bit about Arch and Quintessa; both are also likable. Employees of the Naval Yard, FBI men, and others are known minimally through conversations and actions. I didnt like the FBI men as they at first as they werent sure her notes were any more than the imagination of a wannabe Nancy Drew or if the notes were accurate, and later did not want her to endanger herself. It was hard to know who might be possible saboteurs, especially with the extreme prejudice and those in factions who brought hard to other.

    The author weaves an exhilarating story that is intriguing and has excellent spiritual lessons. It was hard to put it down! The plot is believable and intricate; trying to figure out who the bad guys or gals were was nearly impossible. There were plot twists and turns, dangers and emotions that heighten throughout the novel. The ending came too quickly yet with loose ends tied up and background incidents better understood. I highly recommend Through Waters Deep to those interested in Christian WWII fiction with women central to the story. If one likes mystery, pulse-pounding suspense, and a possibility of romance, it is a worthy read. Sarah Sundin is one of my latest favorite authors; Im looking forward to reading more of her novels.

    With a grateful heart, I won a copy of this book from The Book Club Network. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
