Book Review: Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

Through Waters Deep

I received this book from the author/publisher via Litfuse for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


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.

My Review:Β 

After reading In Perfect Timing I absolutely fell in love with Sarah’s writing as well as her characters and stories. I was not in the least disappointed with Through Waters Deep as it had an excellent amount of action and romance! I love the characters and the story was thrilling. And how about that cover?! Awesome! Honestly, I really didn’t notice anything particularly “bad” in this book, but there were a few detailed kissing scenes that may annoy/disturb some. Also, the story tends to lag a bit in the middle, but not bad. So overall, I rate Through Waters Deep 4 out 5 stars and will definitely be reading book 2 to the Waves of Freedom series!

Thanks for reading!

  1. This book was lovely! I really liked the “cozy mystery” feel, and like you, cannot wait for book two – and yes, that cover is gorgeous. There’s a video that shows fun behind-the-scenes glimpses of the photo shoot, which is pretty neat. πŸ™‚
