    The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin

    The Sea Before Us #1 Sunrise at Normandy by Sarah Sundin With historical accuracy and in-depth descriptions placing the reader right in the middle of the action, the frantic days (January-June 1944) leading up to D-Day and those involved in developing the perfect plan to implement on that day unfold in this powerful story. We are taken to three countries: England, France and Scotland over this time period. Much of the historical information shared of those days leading up to D-Day I was not aware of. In the midst of all the planning and urgency love is in the air; but is it advisable to begin a romance in the middle of war? Dorthy Fairfax, a Wren (Women’s Royal Navy Service), and American Lt. Wyatt Paxton face that very question. They both have past heartaches, circumstances and problems in their lives; will they learn to rely more on the Lord in these times as well as in good times? Long held secrets are revealed and surprising twists and turns in the characters’ lives and the war. I appreciate the spiritual elements woven within the story-line. I enjoy reading the historical notes the author includes at the end of the book. A powerful, heartwarming story. ~I also received a copy of this book from the author/publisher (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~

    An absolutely incredible historical romance!

    The main characters are fantastic! They are so well developed that I felt like I was their friend and just sitting down with them for a cup of tea. The heartaches that both Wyatt and Dorothy were carrying around were deep and very easy to understand. I have one favorite quote that grabbed my attention and held me fast on one page for a good 5 minutes. “At least God had forgiven him. Thank you, Lord. Your forgiveness is all I need, but you know it isn’t all I want.” There have been many times and situations in my life that I have felt that way. I was just never able to put it into words so clearly. The way that Wyatt and Dorothy slowly built a solid friendship was wonderful. They supported and encouraged each other so much. I loved seeing what was involved in the planning of D-Day! It was also a lot of fun to get a look at how the U.S. Navy and the British Navy worked together and some of the differences in their terms and procedures. I had heard about the Blitz in London. This book really helped me to understand more fully how terrifying that had to have been. I received a free copy of this book from the author.

    A MOving WW2 Story

    The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin is the first book in her Sunrise at Normandy series. Wyatt Paxton is stationed in England awaiting D-Day. He meets Dorothy Fairfax, who is a “Wren” in the Women’s Royal Naval Service. She studies snapshots of the coast of Normandy in order to create accurate maps for the allied landings. Wyatt transforms those maps into naval bombardment plans for D-Day. As they spend more time together will they learn to forgive or will they let their past rule their future? I loved the way that Wyatt clung to God during his trials instead of pushing Him away. It’s a lesson we all should learn. At times Dorothy was a little too thick-headed for my liking, but overall, she was a great heroine. Stories of World War two have always held a special interest for me. I have actually stood Omaha Beach and it was a very moving experience. So, it was easy to picture all the scenes as they unfolded. Dorothy’s love and devotion to her father was very touching. The humor that was woven through-out the story came at just the right times. Ms. Sundin is a very talented author. Her research was woven into a very moving story.
