MY REVIEW-Sarah Sundin is one of those rare authors who comes along and makes you delve into a time period you may not really want to read, and enjoy yourself the whole time:) I am not a real big fan of WWII time period books. They just aren't my favorites. But this author here can make me read them and love them!
Through Water's Deep is the start of a new series and can I admit, this is probably my favorite? Other than maybe the first book I ever read of hers, A Distant Melody, because that one got me addicted to her writing. But with the mystery aspect enveloped inside these pages, I just totally fell in love. Though at first I did want to slap Jim Avery for his attitude about women, he quickly became a favorite of mine. And don't get me started on sweet mousy secretary, Mary Stirling. I can so relate to her ways and the feelings she has about herself!
One of the main things I like about the authors books would be how she brings history alive. The characters in here are on the brink of WWII and going through struggles, doubts and worry over what will happen to their country and what they may have to do if they go to battle. I enjoyed seeing the insight into the struggles people from other countries, but living in America, went through. There is a German man who made me ache with what he went through. Living life the way he did and having to defend himself to the Americans while some of them just turned on him the instant they heard his name or his accent. Makes me realize how biased and uncaring people can be. And yet some, like Mary, were willing to look past the outside and see who they were inside.
So readers, even if you don't care for military books, or WWII, please take a chance and try this author. I did and have never been more happy!! Another excellent page turner from Sarah Sundin!
