Bree Cordel Whitman is a Whitman by marriage, but sometimes she forgets she wasn't born into Grant and Audrey's family. Her late husband, Timothy Whitman, gave his life for his country on a windblown hill in Afghanistan. Bree has let the love of Tim's family keep her ties to him strong--in the same way she keeps Tim's memory alive for them. But it's been almost five years, and she can't hang onto the past forever.

Interview with Sarah Sundin

Sarah Sundin is the author of eight historical novels, including Anchor in the Storm. Her novel Through Waters Deep is a finalist for the 2016 Carol Award, won the INSPY Award, and was named to Booklist’s “101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years.”

With the hand of a master sculptor, Sarah Sundin chisels flawed characters, molds situations that magnify those flaws, and spurs them to grow by sanding away the imperfections.

“‘Perfect’ characters are a disservice to readers,” Sarah said. “They make the reader feel dejected ... They raise unrealistic expectations for romance that real-life men and women can’t possibly fulfil. Watching a flawed character overcome her fears and flaws and pride and misconceptions—watching her become truly heroic—that gives us hope that we can do likewise.”
