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.

Exciting series set during WW2, three estranged brothers serving in different military branches meet at D-Day. Sarah Sundin does her homework to ensure historical details are accurate and fascinating.

I haven't read a good, clean romance in years. Very Christian friendly if you are looking for that. At the same time, it was good to the point I was squealing at my husband due to the crazy plot twists. I loved it.
