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.

The tense days leading up to the monumental D-Day landing blaze to life under Sarah Sundin's practiced pen with this powerful new series.

I don't usually read WWII fiction, but this one caught my attention and I'm so glad I followed the impulse to read it. The writing is lovely. The characters are deeply flawed, with real struggles and faith crises, which makes them so very relatable, and makes their character arcs organic and believable. The plot is interesting, complex, unique, and authentic - the author clearly did her research! I loved learning about the WRENs. And of course England - I love me some England. It was fun to see it through two POV characters from opposite sides of the "pond." This was my first book by this author. I will definitely be reading more! Looking forward to the next in the series.

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.

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~

I'm a huge fan of author Sarah Sundin! I adore her WWII stories and was excited to begin reading this latest book. I will admit, at first, I was a tiny bit disappointed. The story was really hard to get into for me, but only in the beginning. I felt like Wyatt's background story was somewhat immature and unrealistic. I find it hard to believe a young man would want to kill his own brother over an accident. Maybe the author didn't make it quite real enough for me. However, I understand why the author used this event as the premise for the rest of the story and did like to see how Wyatt corrected the mistakes he made as a young man and grew in his personal relationship with the Lord because of it. About 1/3 of the way through the story, I began really enjoying the book. I loved Dorothy and her story, seeing her find her faith and grow in it was rewarding. I also highly enjoyed the historical events and battles that took place toward the end. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys WWII fiction. it was a light read, sometimes lacking in depth, but good just the same. I'm looking forward to reading the second book in this series when it is available. *I received an advance copy of this ebook from in exchange for an honest review.

Sarah Sundin is a WWII expert! Her research into this era shines through in her writing and attention to details in the story she writes. The Sea Before Us is a fantastic beginning to her Sunrise at Normandy Series! Dorothy's character is strong and capable yet naive and vulnerable all at the same time. When it comes to her work she knows exactly what she doing. She does her job well and knows it. On the other hand, her relationships struggle. She's been through a lot and is insecure. She grows leaps and bounds throughout the story and it's beautiful to watch. Wyatt is incredibly charming. He has a strong faith, but struggles to forgive himself of his past. As his story unfolds it's easy to see why he's so wonderfully likeable. Wyatt trusts God and continues to lean into Him as he works through his struggles. Dorothy and Wyatt have a beautiful friendship as they help each other process the trials their each working through. That relationship deepens as they confide in one another and discover things they never expected. This story is extremely well written, well researched, and well thought out! I cannot wait to read Book #2!

This is a great historical look into the lives of people that helped others, that we might not even know about. That is the great thing about historical fiction. The author writes great war stories that bring specific time period into focus, D-Day and Air-raids are a few things in this book. The author also has a way with weaving in family dynamics and a Christian viewpoint. These families are not perfect, forgiveness and love is key, I enjoyed the main characters, and I too am curious about squirrels. I can not wait for the sequels. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy via Baker/ Revell, however all opinions are my own.

The Sea Before us by Sarah Sundin is the first of the new Sunrise at Normandy series. It is 1944, Operation Overlord is in the planning stages. The Allies are getting ready to storm the beaches at Normandy, France in June. One tragedy ripped the three Paxton brothers apart. Can one life-altering event in World History bring them back together? Sarah Sundin spins an awfully good yarn, stemming from her exceptional research into everything WWII. I have long been an admirer of Sarah’s writing. This era is a favorite reading topic of mine. This first installment recounts the actions of Wyatt Paxton, originally from Texas but now attatched as a laison to the Allied Naval Expeditionary Force in London. There he meets Dorothy Fairfax, a WREN, stationed at the same facility. Wyatt fled his Texas home in the wake of an impossible situation. He enlisted in the Navy and has purposely lost touch with his family. Dorothy lives in London with her father. His business manager is finding some discrepancies within his company. Dorothy’s father seems to be distancing himself from the problems. As their friendship grows, they encourage eachother to seek the Lord in their difficult circumstances. Though they are confronted with many obstacles, Wyatt and Dorothy manage to trust and rely on God for the outcome. Sarah is one of my very favorite authors. She translates history to the pages of her novels in a way that lets you live parts of the war as if you were right there in the action. She conveys the emotions of the characters in a convincing way. This is an interesting and well written story. I recommend it for WWII history buffs or anyone who likes a great novel. *I received this book from the author in a contest. I was not required to post a review.

I loved reading The Sea Before Us, as part of remembering my childhood during World War II. My earliest memories include hearing radio announcements of the Allies’ progress against the Axis after D-Day. I would think about my many relative serving in the USA Military forces. A favorite aunt had volunteered in the Women’s Army Corps, (WAC). I therefore was fascinated by reading about Dorothy Fairfax in the British Women’s Royal Navy Service, (Wrens). I appreciated the changing attitudes and family dynamics of Lt. Wyatt Paxton and Second Officer Dorothy Fairfax as both struggled with family history while working toward their goal of serving their own countries against a common enemy. As realistic characters, they didn’t always make the wisest decisions, and had to suffer the consequences, in spite of their good intentions. And coping with their difficulties made a great story. I heartily recommend Sarah Sundin’s The Sea Before Us, and I look forward to buying the next two novels in this series.

The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin won’t leave readers disappointed. It’s yet another World War II novel that will be impossible to put down. One of the things that I love about this fabulous author is that her knowledge and love for World War II history always shines above and beyond and flows beautifully with her story. If anything, it always adds depth and I always find myself learning something new. This time Sundin takes us to London where the American Navy is working with our British Allies to prepare and plan for D-Day in Normandy. I found it fascinating to learn how the Navy battleships played a major role during D-Day as well as all of the risks and obstacles they had to overcome. Since we are in London, we also get to learn about the WRNS (Women’s Royal Navy). I love learning how women in history take on roles in the military in order to help defend our countries. Speaking of which, I absolutely loved our characters. Wyatt Paxton is probably one of my favorite male leads. He is a gentleman, loves the Lord, but has a difficulty forgiving himself for something that was beyond his control. Dorothy Fairfax is a beautiful young woman who struggles with seeing herself as beautiful and loved. Something I think all of us women struggle with at some point in our lives. There were also themes of fully trusting the Lord and truly understanding the forgiveness and love of the Lord as Father and the redemption of the Cross. I truly loved every moment of this book and cannot wait for the next because I must know what happens next. Highly recommended for everyone and anyone.

THE SEA BEFORE US is the first book in Ms. Sundin's newest series and it is a winner. Both Wyatt and Dorothy won my hearts, my sympathy, and my complete attention. Wyatt is a good, honorable man, a true hero. Wounded to be sure, but beyond sweet. I absolutely adored him. Dorothy is struggling to win the love she most needs, settling for crumbs of attention, and willing to risk herself for a tiny drop of attention, bless her heart. I wanted to give her a good talking to, tell her what she was doing to herself. I wanted her to see the truth. Her father. Ah, there's another good man. A secondary character, but so much character. He was awesome. There are so many other things I could say, characters to comment on. From Wyatt's friends and Dorothy's friends, to a scottish terrier with personality. And of course, Ms. Sundin did a stellar job with the scenery description, making me feel like I was there. Oh, and a mention of the Coast Guard! I love those heroes making an appearance in a book about a Naval officer. There was an unexpected plot twist, some war action, blackmail, and of course, romance. All in all, this was a book to be savored, and one of Sundin's best and I've read every single one of her books to date. If you love WWII history, then you will want to read THE SEA BEFORE US. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. A truly good read. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

After reading The Sea Before Us, Sarah Sundin has become an author I’ll be on the lookout for. Prior to reading this story, I had only read a novella by Sundin. How imprudent of me to wait so long to enjoy her writing over the span of an entire novel! A mistake I plan to rectify quickly by downloading her backlist to my iPhone. What I relished most was the effortlessness of her storytelling. Sundin’s portrayal of the build up to Normandy was delivered with the gravity and respect it deserved. It allowed her readers to feel the pall hanging over England and the hopeful expectation the war would soon turn. So much rich history is woven into the story, yet the plot is never weighed down by it. Being a veteran myself, I felt a special connection with Dorothy in regards to her sense of duty. She saw herself and her role as vital to the war effort and she maintained the highest level of professionalism, even while swooning over Lieutenant Commander Eaton.To me, her character spoke of how women can display strength without sacrificing their femininity. While Dorothy is blinded by Mr. Wrong, Mr. Oh-So-Right enters the scene in the form of Wyatt Paxton. I had compassion for this character following the events depicted in the prologue. Despite his poor choices starting in 1941 until he met Dorothy in 1944, he never lost my affections. Among his most noteworthy qualities were his humility and his confidence in Christ’s atoning work. In fact, repentance and reconciliation are strong themes in this work. Whether you are on the lookout for a great historical romance or a novel with a solid Christian message, The Sea Before Us is an excellent choice. I will undoubtedly recommend it to book clubs over the course of the year. Purchase a copy for yourself and one for a friend! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.

"Why had she longed for Peter Pan and Neverland?" (351) How shall I start? How about, who knew a loaf of bread can be so romantic? Yep. A loaf of bread. The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin had surprised me in many ways. First off, I find it quite cute, especially given the seriousness of the subject and setting of this WWII novel. Sarah Sundin's known for her ease of bringing readers into the scenes of this tumultuous times, no doubt due to her impeccable research of the era. The Sea Before Us gave readers a story rich in historical details, not only in terms of the culture or the forms of dress or speech, but in the activities and what had traumatize many around the world. The historical events, and the actions leading towards was superb in its depiction and brought us to the forefront of what it was like in our characters' minds. Then there's the emotional development of our main characters that paved way towards a well-rounded historical novel, one that gave us a bit of everything. We had characters we can love, hate, learn from, and respect, and a redemptive story line mixed in with a bit of suspense and romance. "No matter what - when life feels as light as the morning or as dark as the depths of the sea, he's there. His hand leads us and holds us." (126) Yes, I love the fact that there's a bit of light and a bit of dark and a lot in between that allow readers to speculate, and explore alongside. Yes, it's a story - a work a fiction, but doesn't mean it can't take us on an adventure weaving through the past to help us learn to get to the future? And I think that's what The Sea Before Us reminds me of. In all, a great story, one of my favorites from Sarah Sundin. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.

Sundin’s lively love story set in WWII England delivers a fast paced, informational and emotional read. Readers of the era will enjoy this one for the richness of historical details. Beautifully crafted, the story takes us through the paces of an English Wren with a misplaced heart for an English Lt. scoundrel, and the boy who is patient and wins her heart, a US Navy officer.

1944 London, England. A place filled with soldiers, native and foreign, air raids, and preparations for an invasion into France. Naval Officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton, from Texas, works closely with Dorothy Fairfax, a WREN, in the Women’s Royal Naval Services. They work together to piece snapshots together to make the maps used as accurate as possible. Their friendship begins to turn into more, but the demands of the war, and of their own personal lives, threaten to ruin any possibilities of a love. Can they be stronger than the demands of the world? The prologue was definitely a puncher. It started off grabbing hold of me and by the end of that chapter I was hooked! Unfortunately…. the story lost its grip on me after the prologue. I continued reading for a while but finally stopped. I did not finish the book. As quickly as it grabbed my attention, it quickly lost my attention. I found the story difficult for me to get into, it became dull for me. I was bummed. The book unfortunately goes on my list of Did Not Finish. *I received this book free from Revell in exchange for my honest review. What I have expressed are entirely my own thoughts.

This newest series by Sarah Sundin is probably the heaviest one she's written so far, and I mean that in an entirely good way! The Sea Before Us has a prologue that explains the reason for the Paxton brothers' estrangement. While Sarah's not afraid to tackle serious subjects, it's such a serious way to start the story, but it's important. Because of this, we get to see Wyatt Paxton's growth over the years as he joins the U.S. Navy and tries to do his part to mend the rift in his family. When introduced in the story, Dorothy Fairfax has also come a long way in her young life. Having survived the London Blitz but not without tragedy, Dorothy and her father are trying to survive, each in their own ways. As Dorothy and Wyatt come to know one another and grow closer together, it's both sweet and frustrating to see how they learn to let go, forgive, heal, and accept God's plan for their lives. Set against the backdrop of England in the days leading up to D-Day, the story is set up beautifully in its themes of forgiveness and timing. There are some interesting plot twists that kept me on my toes, and I'm anxious to see how the Paxton family grows throughout the Sunrise at Normandy series! ***I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.

By sea. By air. By land. Operation Neptune. World War II is in full swing, and the US troops are finally joining the British. Peel back the cover to watch Operation Neptune unfold — except I suspect you’ll be drawn right into the middle of it like I was! Not only are nations at war, but Wyatt and Dorothy are fighting battles of their own. Forgiveness, grief, love, and trust are all issues they struggle to define and accept. I loved the very real, often raw emotions the characters wrestled with. The Sea Before Us is a wonderfully well-written story honoring the men and women who bravely fought in World War II. As that generation passes from among us, books like The Sea Before Us give us a taste and an understanding of perhaps what their experiences would have been like. Whether you are looking for a good World War II story, a well-written romance, or a book with a bit more food for thought, The Sea Before Us is an excellent choice! (I received a complimentary copy of this novel. The thoughts expressed here are entirely my own.)

This book has a beautiful cover and immediately drew me in to selecting it to read. The story is set during the World War II time period, between Wyatt Paxton and Dorothy Fairfax. Wyatt enlisted into the Navy after a string of troubles, hoping that the pay from enlistment who help achieve his goal of paying off his debt. In England, he meets Dorothy and her dad.  Dorothy's job within the Royal Naval Service sounds truly intriguing. One that I would love to read more about, doing research on my own. The story reads well and there is plenty of dialogue. After my grandma read the book, her comment was that she couldn't read the D-day section based on the realistic descriptions of the event. All in all it was a good book, although for me, it didn't have a smooth flow, symphony of words. My love for the characters weren't quite there, not really liking Dorothy for the most part. But for others, this book will capture their hearts and their interest of this time period in time. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, and was under no obligation to post a review.

This debut novel of the Sunrise at Normandy series by Sarah Sundin continues her excellent historical fiction writing. Focusing on World War II and the events that led up to the D-Day invasion, it features Dorothy who is a "Wren" or member of the Women's Royal Naval Service in England and Wyatt who is an officer in the US Navy. This novel is a wonderful mix of history, mystery, romance, and twists and turns. It captures the feeling of England at war and places the reader right there in the midst of the fray with all the sounds, smells, and sights. The plot is thrilling as the events build towards the combined D-Day Invasion. Sundin's obvious incredibly detailed research into the events and the battles is amazing. The characters were very well written. Dorothy was involved in helping map the area and terrain in which the invasion would take place. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about mapmaking for war and how the English sent in their photos to help Dorothy's group understand every little detail about the area of Normandy. Dorothy learned a lot about herself through her relationship with Wyatt and with Lawrence. With Wyatt she could truly be herself and with Lawrence she played a role to make him happy. As she grew in her faith, thanks to Wyatt's help, she realized that God made her just like she was supposed to be not like she thought she should be. Wyatt's faith was strong, but Dorothy helped him realized that when he accepted God's grace and forgiveness he was also supposed to forgive himself. Lawrence was very self-absorbed and was the model "bad boy." All of them seemed to realized the importance of believing in yourself. I hated to see this story end and am hoping that the rest of the series will feature Wyatt's two brothers and the roles they played in WWII as well as seeing the 3 brothers reunited. FAVORITE QUOTES: "..we try to atone for our own sins, but Christ made the ultimate atonement and we can do nothing." "When times are dark, it's hard to see the light, but it doesn't mean the light is less real." I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishers through NetGalley.

With each book by Sarah Sundin I feel I am more well educated on the time periods she writes about. This is the first book in her new series and what an amazing start! I love the details of the Wrens and their jobs as the Allies prepared for D-Day. I had never known all the work that went behind D-Day. It is fascinating to learn those details. And what makes the details interesting is the way they are woven into a story. The story of Dorothy and Wyatt is interesting not just because of the time they are in, but because of their relationship as friends grows into more and as they both need to trust and realize what is important. I love the added family dynamics from both Dorothy and Wyatt. I can't wait to read more about Wyatt's brothers. I received this book from the publishers. All opinions are my own.

Yet another stunning novel by Sarah Sundin! The Sea Before Us was everything I hoped for and more. Sarah managed to weave a sweet romance between the bitterness of war and the disillusionment of misplaced expectations. With a prologue that will reel you in and many unanswered questions about the Fairfax family, this story of forgiveness, both human and Devine, as well as characters riddled with flaws and brimming with honesty and potential, will hold you captive until the end. As we follow the stories of American naval officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton and "Wren" (Women's Royal Naval Service) officer Dorothy Fairfax, the picture of London before D-day becomes clear and vivid. Wyatt, a Texas boy at heart, finds himself working in London preparing for the "big day" alongside Dorothy who has eyes only for a handsome officer she's known since childhood. Tensions rise, both on the war field and off, but the thing I loved the most about this story was the realness of Sarah's characters. It's not easy to create believable issues (both past and present) without things becoming too heavy to bear or too fake to trust. Sarah uses her characters to point out fundamental truths of the heart as much as she shows the raw and honest struggle with forgiveness. I flew through this book not only due to the easy style of Sarah's writing (something I've always admired about her books) but because the plot was well paced and the character struggles easy to believe. The setting only enhanced the experience and left me feeling like I'd walked out of my own personal experience of WWII. Highly recommended to those who love Christian historical fiction, sweet romance, and fans of all things WWII. You will find this book chocked full of realistic detail and a sense of the time period that will transport you back in time to a lesser known aspect of D-day. I'm already looking forward to book 2! _______________ I received this book for free but was under no obligation to post a review. I do so under my own motivation and the opinions I have expressed in this review are honest and entirely my own.

There are lots of facets of WWII that spark my interest. Not so long ago, I would not have placed reading details of the actual military aspects of war too high on that list. In the past few years, though, that has changed -- and Sarah Sundin is one of the main reasons for that change. Like the others I have read, her The Sea Before Us is a book that I had trouble putting down, no matter where the story was going at the moment. Sarah does an excellent job of weaving together a story with real people, with real feelings, into the real battles of war. (I use the term "real" a little loosely, because many of her characters and even specifics of battle are fictional, but they are all very real on the page.) She is a master at research and uses the fruits of that research to share exact events from the war or piece them together into something that could have very well happened at that time. Wyatt and Dorothy both have stories that invite you in to learn more. Hurt, guilt, remorse, fear, love, and faith all play into the directions their lives take. They each help the other grow, even at the times they seem to be working in opposite directions and when the war threatens to tear everything apart. I highly recommend The Sea Before Us (and for that matter, any of Sarah Sundin's WWII stories) to fans of great inspirational fiction. And you just might learn a little military history along the way. Sarah has two more books planned in the Sunrise at Normandy series, stories that make me anxious to pick up where this one left off. Thanks to Revell Publishing for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

The Sea Before Us is such a wonderful book of love, twists, relationships and the trust in GOD. You have Dorothy who is interested in a not so nice guy. Meanwhile on the sidelines you have Wyatt who is supportive and patient with her. He puts his trust in the LORD through all this book and boy howdy does he need it. It is a beautifully fun book and you will enjoy each and every page. This author is wonderful and I hope I have the chance to read the next one.
