In 1944, American naval officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton arrives in London to prepare for the Allied invasion of France. He works closely with Dorothy Fairfax, a "Wren" in the Women's Royal Naval Service. Dorothy pieces together reconnaissance photographs with thousands of holiday snapshots of France--including those of her own family's summer home--in order to create accurate maps of Normandy. Maps that Wyatt will turn into naval bombardment plans.

As the two spend concentrated time together in the pressure cooker of war, their deepening friendship threatens to turn to love. Dorothy must resist its pull. Her bereaved father depends on her, and her heart already belongs to another man. Wyatt too has much to lose. The closer he gets to Dorothy, the more he fears his efforts to win the war will destroy everything she has ever loved.

The tense days leading up to the monumental D-Day landing blaze to life under Sarah Sundin's practiced pen with this powerful new series.

Note: I am going to review this book differently then my other one's. This review is not going to be as long and detailed like my other one's. 

Okay one thing.....YOU CANNOT END A BOOK LIKE THAT!! Okay yes, it did end on a happy note, but now we have to wait for another book to come out before we find out what happens next!! Why Sarah? Why?!? 

This book will leave you in a mess of emotions! This is my first even Sarah Sundin book and I am very happy to say that it will not be my last! Everything from the characters to the plot was amazing!! The romance was simple and sweet. Although, Dorothy did frustrate me on something and it took her forever it figure out!! Wyatt was an amazing character and I cannot wait to read more about him in the next two books. I really cannot wait to find out what happens between him and his brothers. 

I also really loved this book because I have a slightly weird obsession with WW1 and WW2. So, a Christian, romance, WW2 novel...... sign me up!! One of the great things about Sarah Sundin is that she only writes WW2 novels, so she knows the history inside and out. That is another thing that was great about this book was the accurate history. Yes, there are historical fiction books out there that are accurate but they came and go. Some are harder to find then others, so whenever I read a book that has accurate historical details I get really excited. 

All in all, I am just really happy that I recieved the chance to read this amazing book and I cannot wait for the next one to come out!! Books like this help me with my patience! 

*I received this book from Revell Publishers in exchange for my true honest opinion.*
