Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

Sarah Sundin is an absolute gem. She is in the top of the best of the best. She's one of those writers who pens a story deep with lessons of life to be learned. As each page is turned you not only begin to love the characters, but you find yourself within the story. She is a gifted writer who brings stories of hope through the characters who are believable. 

This is the  first novel in her new series, Waves of Freedom. I enjoyed everything about this novel. We travel back to 1941 where war is right around the corner and we find two main characters, Jim and Mary, who have a romance building. I love the sweetness and the pace of this novel. 

This novel is a bit different from others penned by Sarah that I have had the pleasure of reading. I enjoyed it immensely. This is filled with adventure and mystery. These characters are enchanting and it's such an easy read. Much of this story is lighthearted as we see Mary seeing a story in everything. She's always assuming and pondering what could be and walking with a 'who done it' attitude. She questions the motives of everyone around her. She's a note keeper. Keeping track of everything that surrounds her. I loved her energy and heart.

There is so much to these two characters. Sarah brings out their past and allows us the opportunity to watch them grow in faith and build a love bond that begins with friendship. Together they journey a road of romance. One that brings out the best in each other. 

Once again Sarah brings us a story that is not only a pleasure to read, but enriches us greatly by taking us back in history and inviting us to look back. This would make for a great fall read. Just curl up with this gem, grab come coffee, and you will be off meeting characters your happy to share your time.
