The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin Book Review

The Sea Before Us (Sunrise at Normandy Book #1) by [Sundin, Sarah]

The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin is a sweeping historical romance set in England during the historic D-Day invasion in 1944.  Lt. Wyatt Paxton arrives in London hoping to earn enough money in the military to repair his broken family relationships.  He begins to prepare for the D-Day invasion and meets a saucy red head English WREN (Woman's Royal Naval Service), Second Officer Dorothy Fairfax.  She and Wyatt find themselves working together and forming a very rocky friendship.  Dorothy has no interest in Wyatt, but her father is delighted with the charming American.  Amidst their regular naval duties, Dorothy finds out that her father's company is losing money and she feels her only option is to ask Wyatt for help.  The two start to investigate and are shocked by their discoveries.  And their friendship hangs in a delicate mess as they head towards one of the biggest showdowns in history.  

Sarah Sundin releases another exciting and adventurous novel filled with romance, intrigue and the complicated stories of war.  I loved how she weaved the stories of Wyatt and Dorothy together to create a constant unbalance of emotions and circumstances.  Her research into this battle was extensive and thorough and it helped me understand significant war attacks.  Sarah is a master at intermingling fact and fiction to fit a beautiful story of authenticity and imagination.  Fall in love with Wyatt and Dorothy as you look at their romance through the lens of war.  It's another book that I was not able to put down.
