Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

"Through Waters Deep" by Sarah Sundin is a romance mystery that takes place pre World War II.  From high school friends Mary Stirling who is a Navy secretary and Jim Avery a naval officer who fall in love as they try to figure out who is sabotaging the new destroyer the USS Atwood.  Normally I can't stand romance novels but this one was not as heavy romance as I thought it was going to be.  The author did very good job putting details of history that most people don't realize about the history specifically about how Germans were treated on the East Coast.  The history and some of the side stories is what I really enjoyed about this book and truthfully even some of the romance portion wasn't too bad. I really enjoyed the character of Mary, she was a really developed character.  All the character's in this book we very well developed.  This author is a very talented story teller and I would like to read more of her books.  I highly recommend this book its a really good historical fiction novel.

I was given this book from Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group for my honest review and was not required to give a positive review.
