About this Book
When asked what he does for a living . . .
Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: “I’m in the Navy.” But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him.
Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She’s a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.
Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn’t see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best–ocean science research. She’s on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop’s perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she’s figured out is only the beginning. If she’s right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

Since Dee Henderson’s return her books have been very heady and lengthy. This book is no exception, however, unlike the previous one that focused a great deal on coin collections this one looks at topics that a broader audience would enjoy.
I loved Gina Gray as the brilliant expert on sonar technology. She has a sweet almost innocent personality but she also had a sassy side as she interacted with Mark Bishop. Throughout most of the story I really liked his character, although there was a section about halfway through the book I felt like he was a little aggressive in his relationship with Gina. Even with that overall he was a great character.
I enjoyed the storyline with the different technologies discussed in regards to the submarines and war tactics. I would love to know how much of the science described in the story is feasible. The romance was well done and had an interesting aspect to it that I don’t think I’ve seen before.
Each of the characters grew in their faith and a deeper understanding of what it means to trust God.
This is my favorite Henderson book since her return and would recommend it to those who have enjoyed previous Henderson’s books or if you enjoy books that focus around the Navy and Naval ships.
