Anchor in the Storm
by Sarah Sundin
In a time of sacrifice, what price can one put on true love?
Nothing slows Lillian Avery down--not her personal challenges and certainly not America's entry into World War II. She finally has a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The demands 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 Lillian has been filling?
As the danger rises on both land and sea, the two must work together to answer that question. But can Arch ever earn Lillian's trust and affection?
This was a fun read for me, because I have been to Boston before and it was interesting to read about it's history. Especially about nurses during World War II. It was definitely different from today in regards to medicine and injuries. The romance was sweet and I would love to see more of this couple in the next book in the Waves Of Freedom Series. I thought that how the author talked about disabilities back then, compared to how they are now, is worth mentioning. I was also glad to meet back up with characters from book one in the series. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
