Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 11, 2016 – Sundin's second Waves of Freedom novel (after Wings of the Nightingale), a delicious mix of mystery, romance, and girl power set at the beginning of WWII, will surely please fans. Lillian Avery faces particular challenges as an amputee with pharmacist ambitions. Her plucky drive and supportive family have helped her through a lot, but when she begins a romantic liaison with a wealthy naval officer, Lillian's life becomes more complicated than she could have imagined. Lillian's voice is strong and her battle is uplifting, but the nature of the crime she encounters and a few turns in her up-and-down relationship might strain credulity. Nevertheless, the drama of a U.S. on the brink of war experienced by a this independent young woman and the man she loves who wrestles with what readers will recognize as PTSD will keep readers interested despite moments of predictability. Lillian's adventures, her dashing man, their growing faith in God, and an exciting historical context will satisfy readers looking for an uplifting story in the midst of falling hope.

Customer Reviews

Another wonderful historical romance/mystery!

This book can be considered part of a “true” series in the fact that the lives of the main characters from book one continue running a natural course in this book as secondary characters. The mystery itself is a stand-alone story with no connection at all to the previous book.

I loved seeing where Jim and Mary are now, a short time after the end of their story. Along with that I got to learn a lot more about Arch and his background. Add on top of that the joy of meeting Lillian Avery. She is a delightful character who has been horribly wounded both physically and emotionally in the past.

Both Arch and Lillian have a difficult journey learning to trust others. Watching their struggles as they learn to rely on God as their anchor is tremendous.

They are both drawn into a mystery just by the fact that they are observant of their surroundings and other people. As they work on solving it from two different directions they and others find themselves in danger. The twists in the story kept me guessing as to all the connections between people on land and on the ship that Arch is assigned to.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
