Anchor in the Storm (Revell, May 2016)

One plucky female pharmacist + one high-society naval officer = romance—and danger

For plucky Lillian Avery, America’s entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston. The challenges 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 for sedatives Lillian has filled? The two work together to answer that question, but can Arch ever earn Lillian’s trust and affection?

Sarah Sundin brings World War II to life, offering readers an intense experience they won’t soon forget.

Christ is the anchor in all of life’s storms

Sarah Sundin explores the dangers of prejudice and preconceptions in new WWII mystery

4/21/2016 || Seattle: Male and female stereotypes have always existed. World War II brought major changes to the status quo in America as necessity challenged traditional male/female roles and opportunities. Sarah Sundin delves into these dynamics in the second installment in her Waves of Freedom series, Anchor in the Storm (Revell/May 3, 2016/ ISBN: 978-0800723439/$14.99). As the needs of a nation brought millions of women into the workforce, some for the first time, ladies were suddenly finding new strengths and facing new tests, including Lillian Avery.

For plucky Lillian, America’s entry into World War II means a chance to prove herself as a pharmacist in Boston, and although her road isn’t easy, she has high hopes for success. Her boss isn’t thrilled about hiring a woman, and Lillian has a visible physical disability that causes some people to assume mistakenly she might be weak. Sundin drew from her own life for this aspect of Anchor in the Storm’s plotline. “My oldest son was born missing his left arm below the elbow,” she reveals. “He’s never let it stop him. He’s a mechanical engineer and a black belt in karate. I’m thankful he was born in modern times when we have more enlightened views of disabilities.”

Tensions on the job are just the beginning of Lillian’s difficulties. She also isn’t thrilled about the attention she’s receiving from society boy Ensign Archer Vandenberg. Arch himself is surprised to find himself drawn to Lillian. He’s typically skeptical of women; they’re usually more interested in his money than him. The war has changed his life as well, as he hunts German U-boats along the East Coast on his destroyer. His efforts seem in vain as enemy submarines sink dozens of merchant ships. Sundin says this was a time when the war was truly brought home for Americans; in the first six months of 1942, thousands of merchant marines and passengers were killed with many deaths viewed by beach-going families along the shore.

Shaken by his battles at sea, Arch notices his men also struggle with their nerves — and with acute drowsiness. Could there be a link between their maladies and the large prescriptions for sedatives Lillian has filled? Arch and Lillian work together to find the answer, while Arch works to win Lillian’s trust and affection.

Sundin truly brings World War II to life in Anchor in the Storm, offering readers an intense experience they won’t soon forget. As always, Sundin had a Bible verse in mind as she wrote: Hebrews 6:18–19 (KJV), which says, “We might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast.” Sundin hopes readers will learn along with Arch and Lillian to allow Christ to be their anchor no matter what shipwrecks they face in life.

Readers should also keep their eyes peeled for the third book in the Waves of Freedom series, When Tides Turn, which will release spring 2017.

Advance Praise

“The second installment of Sundin’s Waves of Freedom is as intriguing and heartfelt as the first. The drama of the war on the decks of a Navy ship is balanced by adventure taking place on land. A sensitive yet fascinating look at combat fatigue, its facets and how it was treated at the time gives the novel depth. The relationship between plucky Lillian and world-weary Arch is detailed and engaging.”

~ RT Book Reviews, 4 stars for Anchor in the Storm

“Readers will be struck by the thoughtfulness and care Sundin brings to every thread in this chilling story as they are swept up into exciting plot twists leading to a thrilling climax.”

~ Booklist, starred review of Through Waters Deep

    No doubt about it Sara Sundin really knows how to tell a story. Ms. Sundin has given us an interesting, highly suspenseful thriller with sabotage and mystery there. Ms. Sundin has provided us with a wild ride that will keep you flipping pages to see what will happen next. And did I mention that this is a romance? Anchor in the Storm is an exciting book. Ms. Sundin has done it again and I recommend this book highly.

  • GREAT WWII ROMANCE

    This was a fun read for me, because I have been to Boston before and it was interesting to read about it’s history. Especially about nurses during World War II. It was definitely different from today in regards to medicine and injuries. The romance was sweet and I would love to see more of this couple in the next book in the Waves Of Freedom Series.

    I really enjoyed reading this book…was able to read it in only two days (a real page turner). The characters were very likable, real people with real fears which made it easy to relate to them. The story had a bit of a mystery to it. The two main characters team-up and work together to figure out whose behind an illegal drug ring which sells drugs to sailors.

  • SWEET, SUSPENSEFUL, AND RICH IN RELATIONAL DRAMA

    I think a reader’s pleasure in a story can often derive from where they are in life and how they can or can’t relate to the characters. In this case, I felt drawn in by Lillian and Arch’s story, discovering alongside them what love entails and the importance of identifying your true anchor in life. Sundin fans won’t be disappointed, but this story can also stand well on its own for historical fiction readers wanting to give this great author a try for the first time.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    Sarah Sundin makes my list as one of my favorite historical fiction authors. I have really enjoyed reading about the wars through fictional characters. She does an excellent job at making the historical time period come alive while including fictional characters to tell the story. I learn something new in each of her books, which is one reason I like her. She does her research, but writes it in such a way that the book never feels too heavy with history. She blends her fiction work quiet nicely.

    This is the second book in the Waves of Freedom series by Sarah Sundin. The characters are a continuation from the first book although the main focus switches. A few of the plot details also follow over. I do not read a heavy amount of historical fiction but I have read ALL of this author’s books. I can tell how much research she has done. It does not weigh the book down though.

  • TOP NOTCH WWII ROMANCE FICTION!

    Sarah Sundin’s new Waves of Freedom series has quickly become my favourite series Sarah has ever written! The stories are incredible, the characters are relatable and you really want to root for them, and don’t get me started on these covers. The covers for this series have also become favourites. If you’re looking for a top notch WWII series then Sarah Sundin’s Waves of Freedom series is the one for you.

  • ROMANTIC, SUSPENSEFUL, INSPIRATIONAL

    Anchor in the Storm has that perfect blend of historical detail, rich characterization, suspense, romance, and spiritual depth – resulting in a highly entertaining story that was hard to put down. I’ve read five of Sarah’s novels, all of which are excellent, but I believe this one is my favorite so far. Lillian Avery and Archer Vandenberg are compelling characters, so appealing and relatable in their humanness that I would choose them as best friends in real life if possible…This world will always be full of physical and emotional storms, and the message that Jesus is our anchor, hope and refuge is needed just as much today as it was for Arch and Lillian. Highly recommended.

  • BOOK REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY — ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    Anchor in the Storm is a lovely historical novel set during World War II. It tells the story of Lillian Avery, a pharmacist in a time where women rarely held this job. She is strong and resilient, and has worked hard to achieve all her life after a childhood accident left her an amputee with a prosthetic leg.

    This is truly an on-the-edge-of-your-seat book. The nautical terms add authenticity, and prove how well researched it is. The drama increases powerfully, to a heightened climax. I will admit, there are times I wanted to “clobber” Arch, to try to “knock some sense” in to him!

    Even though Anchor in the Storm is book two in the Waves of Freedom Series, it can stand alone. I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed book one of the series, and look forward to the third book. Be sure to add this to your summer reading list.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    Lillian Avery, the main character is a pharmacist in Boston. Women pharmacists are rare at this time and Lillian’s work efforts, her growing relationship with her brother’s friend, Ensign Archer Vandenberg, and a plot that includes a mystery, contribute to a novel that was engrossing and kept me reading past my usual bedtime.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ REVIEW

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I do all of Sarah Sundin’s books. I loved the fact that she has a theme to the book – Jesus is our Anchor in a time of storm and how her dad gave her an anchor necklace to remind her that Jesus is our Anchor, our Hope in any storm, our Refuge. This spoke to me so much that I bought an anchor necklace for myself.

    This book tackles some difficult subjects – physical disabilities, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and women working in traditionally men’s roles. Lillian’s determination to break through the barriers is admirable. She does the best she can and doesn’t back down from adversity. Even though (Arch) hates the wealth and status he was brought up with, I was impressed with how he uses it to help others with PTSD and other wounded warriors.

    The author kept me guessing as to how the drug ring would be captured and how all the relationships that were hurt and wounded would mend in the end.

  • LOVED IT

    I must say it was really good. It’s one of those books that I figured would be good but was surprised at HOW good it was. It had some elements that aren’t usually in historical fiction–at least not in the books that I read. So it seemed more interesting.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    This was another great read in the wonderful series about World War 2. I think this one was my favorite in the series so far as I loved the characters and the aspect of mystery and intrigue that was wonderfully added. I thought the romance between Lillian and Ensign was just perfect and I loved watching it grow and develop. I loved finding out more about different aspects of World War 2 and I think the author captured the fear that was in America during those dark days, fearing Nazi invasion. I love how the author brought it all to life so beautifully and made me want to know even more! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    As I read Anchor in the Storm I could feel the tension rising through the pages. Drama comes on many fronts, both on land and at sea. Both Arch and Lillian are insecure, wanting recognition for who they are and not what they are. The majority of the other characters are sympathetic and likeable, which means the death of one of them has extra impact. (This is a war, death happens.) The plot flows smoothly, and there’s a twist in it towards the end that I hadn’t seen coming.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    You know what’s totally cool and unexpected about this book? The heroine wears a prosthetic leg, due to a childhood accident. (For those who don’t know, 2 of my daughters also wear prosthetic legs.) This book addresses how people treat her differently and how she’s wary of Arch, not thinking that a decent guy can actually like her. I’m really glad society is more accepting of differences these days.

    Lillian and Arch end up working together to catch bad guys, and falling in love, of course. But they both bring their own baggage to the relationship, and pretty soon, they’re at odds because of it.

    Anchor in the Storm is part romance, part mystery, all wrapped up in the author’s niche era, World War 2.

  • 1940S ROMANCE WITH A DASH OF MYSTERY

    Anchor in the Storm focuses a little less on the mystery than it’s predecessor. I found the mysterious kingpin to be pretty obvious and I didn’t think that the danger was really felt until nearer the end.

    Instead, I had plenty of time to focus on the characters and their budding romance. Spunky Lillian was the perfect match for hilarious Arch. Naval officer Arch knows what he wants in a woman and when he meets his best friend’s sister, he knows he is willing to wait for her to warm up to him. They both have to learn to trust and open up themselves to love and hurt, and when they finally do, it is so precious.

    I can’t leave my rating at a four, but I feel like it is missing to make it a full five, so I’m cheating a bit with a 4.5 star rating.

    Sarah’s writing and descriptions will drop you completely into the world of WWII in Boston. I felt like I was there and experiencing the stress of being a Navy officer in a ship as well as the frustration of being a woman in a position that wasn’t traditionally held by women. As one of my favorite eras this was the perfect read!

    I definitely recommend this book to fans of historical fiction, sweet romance, and mystery.

    Anchor in the Storm, by Sarah Sundin, is the second in the Waves of Freedom series. I honestly loved it more than the first book in the series. I think the development and the depth of Lillian and Arch were phenomenal. She addressed issues in this book that are not easy but did it in a way that was respectful. This book transports you to the WWII era, and there is plenty of intrigue and romance. This is becoming one of my favorite historical fiction series!

  • ANOTHER GREAT BOOK

    Sarah Sundin writes with authority about World War II, the world during this time, the military especially the Navy, medical terminology, and pharmacy practices. I learned more about WW II in this book. Sarah Sundin weaves the perfect balance of fact and fiction for her readers. From the start, this book grabbed ahold of me and kept me guessing until the end, I could not put it down. Being book two, Anchor in The Storm introduced us to new characters but also gave us a deeper look into old friends from the first book. I loved the characters in this book especially Lillian Avery.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    I LOVE this novel! It picks up with some of our favourite characters from Through Waters Deep (the Avery family) but this time the focus is on Lillian. loved her confidence, her hope and her drive. She never gives up throughout the novel even though society is against her moving into a typical role filled by males.This was one exciting novel full of hope, forgiveness, understanding and mystery. I loved every moment of reading this novel.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    One of the things I enjoy about Sundin’s work is how well-researched everything is. Related to that, there always seems to be some little thing that isn’t widely known, such as the deep divide in the United States about joining in World War II prior to Pearl Harbour, that she highlights in her books.

    In Anchor in the Storm, that issue is battle fatigue. Today, we know it at PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

    I love Sundin’s characters who are basically very “human” – and thus flawed – and yet able to forgive themselves and accept themselves for who they are. They learn to put their faith and their trust in God, and in doing so, realize that they don’t need to fight all their battles alone.

    Like already mentioned, I’m not the biggest fan of WWII novels, but I did find myself liking Anchor In The Storm. The author does a great job with descriptions as I felt like I had stepped back in time while I reading it. The characters are written-well, and the romance between Archer and Lillian was believable. Overall, I enjoyed reading Anchor In The Storm and I recommend it to others.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: no one writes World War II era fiction like Sarah Sundin! Her writing has a way of bringing the time period to life, and the vividly drawn characters feel like friends.

    Anchor in the Storm is a book that will captivate you from beginning to end while transporting you into the fascinating world of Boston during World War II. I loved every second I spent reading it, and I almost wish I could start it all over again!

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    Sundin’s writing shines in many ways in this novel. First, she captures the feel of America at war — rations, separations, women moving into jobs typically filled by men, the battle to keep our coasts free from attack. She especially excels at showing that life went on during that time; people sacrificed and made do, but they also continued to live. She also manages to blend criminal drama and romance with the right amount of suspense and tension.

  • REVIEW: ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN PLUS ALL HANDS ON DECK GIVEAWAY

    I loved this story so much! Lillian and Arch were great characters and I loved the way Arch pursued Lillian, whether it was outright flirting or having to back off and just be friends. These two characters were definitely complex! Lillian had a lot of baggage due to her disability and the way she had been treated in a previous romantic relationship. Arch was not used to being liked or loved for the man he was, rather than for his extreme wealth. He had some very big difficulties to try to overcome and although it was rough at times, it was so extremely interesting to watch his journey.

  • ANOTHER WINNER BY SARAH SUNDIN. HER ATTENTION TO HISTORICAL DETAIL MAKES THIS TRULY AN ENJOYABLE SERIES!

    This is the second novel in the Waves of Freedom Series and one I am enjoying from first to last page. Sarah Sundin is an expert at taking an idea from factual history and incorporating her story lines and characters around it. I love Lillian’s attitude of not feeling sorry for herself despite her disability. She is willing to take risks most wouldn’t including being one of the first female pharmacists. She utilizes the assets she still has to be the very best she can be, no matter what she faces. I love that the chemistry develops slowly over the course of the novel and Lillian doesn’t simply fall for Archer despite all the attention she receives from him. Add in a bit of mystery and you have the recipe for a successful and wonderful novel. For me this really hit a 5 out of 5 stars!

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    Anchor in the Storm, by Sarah Sundin, is the second in the Waves of Freedom series. This time we follow Lillian Avery as she moves to Boston in 1941 to take a job as a pharmacist. She has a grumpy boss who is sure she can’t perform her job because she has a prosthetic leg. Lillian vows to be the best she can and has also caught the eye of her brother’s friend and fellow Navy man, Arch. Throw in a mystery and some intrigue and this is the stuff that makes a book perfect. Sarah Sundin writes WWII perfectly and always captures my attention throughout. Can’t wait for the rest of the series.

    I love Sarah Sundin’s World War II novels, and this is one of her best.[…] Sundin accurately depicts the presence of German U-boats in the Atlantic near the eastern seaboard and our sailors’ heroic efforts to keep the war from U.S. soil. The personal struggles they endured as a result of the horrors of war are also presented. As always, Sundin’s characters are authentic, complex, and perfectly portrayed for the time period.[…] As for romance, it is much deeper than starry eyes in the moonlight! Compelling and satisfying, Anchor in the Storm is a must for your summer reading list.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    Anchor in the Storm is the second book in Sarah Sundin’s Waves of Freedom series. The series focuses at this point on the home front during the beginning of the United States’ involvement in World War II. This book in the series focuses on the time after December 7, 1941. We are introduced to another Avery sibling, Lillian, as she comes to Boston to work as a pharmacist. Arch is deployed on the Ettinger, a destroyer hunting for German U-boats in the waters of the east coast. Arch and Lillian come together to try to thwart the drug trafficking on the ships. I have found a wonderful author who writes about this time in history with knowledge and sensitivity.

    I’ve read more non-fiction than fictional WWII books, so this was a new type of book for me. I didn’t think that the war was glorified in it–being that Arch was in the middle of a ship with men struggling with their nerves and Lillian worked at a store that saw the social war affects first-hand. It was very interesting and brought the era to life.

    I really enjoyed this newest book from Sarah Sundin. An awesome follow up to the first book, it has just the right amount of romance with a thread of suspense to keep you intrigued. These characters are real and are each struggling with their own self-worth. Lillian is a strong woman with a determined spirit. She doesn’t let her disability slow her down. Archer is determined to leave his family’s wealth behind and become his own man. You’ll find it easy to get lost in this story!

    Sundin once again transports the reader back to WWII, exploring stories not often told about life during the war.

    As an avid reader of fiction novels, I have stumbled upon books that I plain out don’t like, some that are tolerable, the ones that make the cut and are enjoyable to read, and then those few that are gems. The ones that make the world around you disappear for the hours you are ensnared in its pages. Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin is one of those gems. While it is the second installment in the Waves of Freedom series, you can most definitely read it as a stand-alone story, though many of the same characters are involved from the first book.

    Just as with Sundin’s other stories, the setting switches back and forth between the homefront and the war scene. The Christian element was fairly prevalent, with biblical references and exploration of one’s faith being mentioned. Anchor in the Storm shows another side to socioeconomic issues, presenting prejudice from all angles. It’s worth the read!

  • BOOK REVIEW: ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’

    While romance was intricately weaved into Anchor in the Storm, it was the history and suspense elements that kept me turning the pages of novel. Before reading this story I never would have called myself a reader interested in suspense, but if Sundin continues combining suspense with her history, I will most definitely join the bandwagon on this genre. The author’s experience and insight into the pharmaceutical industry, combined with her passion for World War II history, created a riveting storyline that fascinated me. In addition to the drug-ring storyline, sub-plots involving PTSD and naval history satiated my World War II history craving.

    Anchor in the Storm was hard to put down! It certainly had a different twist, a truly surprise ending!

    The people in the book are so very dear. I am glad that the ones from Through Waters Deep were continued so we can find out how they were doing. Lillian & Arch have lots of issues in their lives, but one constant is the Lord, who they learn to lean on.

  • ‘ANCHOR IN THE STORM’ BY SARAH SUNDIN

    I haven’t read Anchor in the Storm yet. Will be picking my pre-ordered copy up this weekend. I can tell you this, I’ve been a Sarah Sundin fan since the first book I read by her. My father and husband even enjoy her books. My Dad (army) served in WWII (7th infantry under Gen. Patton), Korea & Viet Nam. My husband was in the navy during Viet Nam but he was never in Viet Nam. Sarah’s books on WWII he loves. Each book I’ve read would be a 5 star rating.

  • WONDERFUL ROMANTIC HISTROIC FICTION

    Anchor in the Storm is a wonderful work of Christian Romantic Historical Fiction that blends an engaging romance with an emotional time in the history of our country and complex subplots like family dynamics, handicaps, combat fatigue and drug abuse to show the reader that Christ is the Anchor in our storm. This novel is a 2016 summer “must read.”
