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?

I get all sort of happy whenever I get a chance to read one of Sarah Sundin’s awesome books. I feel like a child shouting “gimmie gimmie” when I see her books. I’m never disappointed and I certainly wasn’t this time. Sarah Sundin does such a great job of researching and it shows in her books. I felt as if I was in Boston as I read this, and her knowledge regarding World War II is awesome and enlightening at the same time. This novel revolved around Lillian Avery, a female pharmacist who is starting her first job. And Ensign Archer Vandenberg, a brave Navy seaman who is looking for someone to love him, not his family’s money. We’ve met both of these characters in Sundin’s first book (You should go read that one too). I loved getting to read about these two characters. This book also had a mystery throughout the entire novel that kept me glued to my reading spot. I recommend that you go get a copy of this book because you’ll enjoy the read, the history, the romance and the lessons.
