Anchor in the Storm
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?
Review by Blanche Mancuso
I am a fan of this author's. Every book that I have read by the author I have just fallen in love with the story and the characters. This new book is no exception. I enjoyed the characters who were officers in the Navy after WWII, who gave their talents and lives for the US. This is a great story of courage and hope which brings WWII to life for the readers.
Lillian Avery, is a pharmacist in Boston who becomes involved with a rich naval officer. The story that unwinds is full of drama and the experiences of a young woman and the man that she loves and their growing faith in God and our country. We often forget our brave men and women who give all for our country. I so loved and enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to others.
