The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin



“…Betrayal. Theft. Fraud. Lies.” (P260) love. War. Family. England. What a story!


This was my first book by Sarah Sundin and it definitely won’t be my last. She is an excellent storyteller. The pages flow together into a seamless work. I looked down and I had read 50 pages. She is a superb researcher. So many details go into the work and it is amazing. I’ve read a lot of World War II stories and it sometimes feel like stories all blend together. They’re so similar. But this story is different. I had never read a story about Normandy and the Navy side of it. It was intriguing and stimulating in a way I didn’t expect. The ways her characters deal with their issues in a realistic way was exceptional. There were plot twists and turns that were totally unexpected. It is definitely not a predictable book! The love story pulls it all together and really makes it one of the best books on WWII I’ve read in a long time. Can’t wait for book 2!
I received a copy of this book from Revell publishing in exchange for my honest review. I was in no way required to write a positive review.
