Tess Beaumont is tired of being thought of as just a pretty face. Eager to do her part for the war effort, she joins the Navy’s newly established WAVES program for women. Perhaps there she can convince people that there is more to her than meets the eye.
Lt. Dan Avery has been using his skills in the fight against German U-boats and hoping to make admiral. The last thing he wants to see on his radar is a girl like Tess. Convinced that romance will interfere with his goals, Dan is determined to stay the course, no matter how intriguing a distraction Tess is.
But love, like war, is unpredictable. When Dan is shipped out at the peak of the Battle of the Atlantic, he finds himself torn between his lifelong career goals and his desire to help the beguiling Tess root out a possible spy on shore. Could this fun-loving glamour girl really be the one?
Wow! Sarah Sundin never fails to disappoint! Why did I wait so long to read this book?
What really drew me to this book was the beautiful book cover of course! I LOVE this book cover and when I saw it I knew that I had to read it.
The story was very moving and I love how Sarah Sundin interweaves history and drama into her novels. I also love how most of her books are interconnected but you can still read this book as a stand-alone as well.
I just love reading Sarah Sundin’s books and I can’t wait to read her next novel. I highly recommend this novel!

Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There’s only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.
Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle’s heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted in a new town and in his new position.
A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister. Her good intentions lead to disaster when Cassie realizes she is falling in love with Evan. But then Evan begins to court Lenora, thinking she is the author of the letters.
As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar’s daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?
I really,really,really wanted to like this book. I was interested in this book because it was published by the same company that published Edenbrooke and Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson.
I’m always ready to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to reading books because I think that is the only way to find a good read.
The synopsis sounded very interesting so I decided to give this book a go. The beginning started out really well and it kept my interest at first and not to mention the book cover is beautiful. That’s one of my weaknesses is to read a book with a beautiful book cover.
As the book progressed I lost interest pretty quickly.
I was just disappointed because the plot sounded so mesmerizing but the book just didn’t do it for me. It fell flat. I’m not giving up on this author just yet but this book just wasn’t a
favorite of mine at all.
