Review: When Tides Turn by Sarah Sundin

When Tides Turn is the third and the last book in Waves of Freedom series.

Waves-of-Freedom-Series

What was it about that woman that turned the tides of his will as surely as the moon?

Quintessa Beaumont is tired of being seen as nothing but a pretty face. Time to time even her closest friends treat her as a spoiled blonde. Once Dan Avery a handsome and serious naval officer and her best friend’s big brother appears in her life and wants to avoid a sassy blond who can ruin his career, Quintessa decides that enough is enough! The war is hitting hard on Europe, US Navy fighting German U-Boats in the Atlantic and the Navy invite women to join the new unit the WAVES, she sees it as an opportunity and a chance to prove herself and the others that she’s too can be useful.

With her new job as WAVES supervisor at the Boston Navy Yard and an investigation of reviling a German spy, Tess finally finds her inspiration and qualities within herself she never knew existed. Now, no one can say she’s only fit to be a pretty sales girl.

This is my 9th book by Sarah Sundin, and I loved it as much as the others!

Points that make Sarah Sundin’s books special to me:
1. I like how the characters from previous books show up it gives a kind of feeling of a big family. And we have a chance to pick into the lives of the beloved characters. I love it about her books, a little snick pick!
2. One of the characters is usually a pretty girl no one ever took seriously and then she just shines from a completely different perspective proving she is not like she appears and much deeper, braver person than most. I love that. A lot more personality hides behind the shields. It is about Tess.
I like Tess’s determination to prove everyone including herself that she’s more than how people see her, that she’s a strong independent smart woman and deserves to be treated like one. And she does prove everybody wrong! Go, girl! I feel like it’s so much difficult at that time when the majority of people didn’t see a woman as an equal to a man and girls had to work so much harder to succeed in a career. It like this moment in the beginning of the book when Tess was talking to her boss about office position and he turned her down saying office work is not for a pretty woman unless she is a secretary. I feel so grateful to those women who fought for equality so we have now much more opportunities.

I like how she grows throughout the story, her character development is amazing and I’m so proud of her! Another reason why I like Sarah Sundin’s books, you become very attached to the characters and feel connected to them in a way.
3. Another reason I like Sarah’s novels so much. It’s not only about getting the boy (although I love the romance parts as well) but her stories are so inspiring and make me want to work harder and become a better person.
