About the Book
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.
My [Partial] Review
I'm currently about a quarter of the way through Anchor in the Storm. It's been a treat so far to watch independent and ambitious Lillian interact with Arch, who is quite the gentleman...but also quite determined to win Lillian's heart. (The ice-skating scene is SO cute, guys!) The two of them have their own struggles in their work and their own faith battles to face. But their troubles are about to cross paths, and I'm excited to see how these two might be able to team up!
I also loved how the story started out with a glimpse at the Avery family Christmas. They're a sweet and fun bunch! :)
I hope to finish the book ASAP, and I'll update this post with my full review then. Stay tuned!
