Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.

    *Starred Review* Having lost her mother and brothers to the war, Dorothy Fairfax now serves as an officer with the Women's Royal Navy Service and shares a department with the handsome though reserved American naval officer Wyatt Paxton. Wyatt, who fled his Texas home and family after a tragic accident, feels like the prodigal son in search of forgiveness from God and himself. Dorothy tries to convince herself she isn't running from past fears of rejection and misery. As an embezzlement accusation and a dark family secret implode, both Wyatt and Dorothy must find their way in uncharted waters. Sundin, author of the splendid Waves of Freedom series, which includes When Tides Turn (2017), begins a new naval WWII saga, Sunrise at Normandy, set in England before the Allies' Normandy landings. The first installment in the series is written with the unwavering excellence for which readers know and love Sundin, and its intensely personal portrait of those living through loss is stunning and tragic. With a commanding grasp of naval history, Sundin spotlights women in the war effort and immerses readers in the ups and downs of naval missions and military exercises as she leads up to a riveting climax in the waters off Omaha Beach.
