OrangeReviewStarIn 1941 Boston, Ensign Jim Avery and Mary Stirling meet by chance, renewing their friendship from high school. Mary's roommate, Quintessa, was Jim's high school crush, a relationship that Quintessa hopes to reignite, much to Mary's dismay. Meanwhile, mysterious "accidents" at the Boston Naval Yard where Mary works place German employees under heavy suspicion. Mary starts her own investigation to find out who is behind the treachery, unaware she might be endangering herself.
VERDICT Providing readers with an immersive experience, Sundin (In Perfect Time) vividly re-creates the atmosphere of a country on the brink of entering World War II. The tender romance at the story's center keeps readers rooting for Jim and Mary to realize their true feelings for each other. In the wake of the popularity of Anita Diamant's The Boston Girl, this book holds local interest for those who have lived in or loved the city. Fans of Rachel Hauck and Melody Carlson will be delighted.
