Publisher's Summary

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.

Even it the mist of WWII, love did bloom!

While serving as a British WREN (British women’s Navy active duty), she was serving in the Allied Supreme command intelligence unit, part of a select team planning the Allied invasion into France. When she meets Wyatt, he’s a U.S. Navy officer in the same offices. They become great friends. But she has her heart set on a more senior officer known from her youth. Romance and twists and turns keep the reader turning pages all through Normandy Invasions. Great plot! Pay attention or you will miss the many surprises! Great narration! Highly recommend!
