First Line Friday’s (5/26/17): Anchor In The Storm

It’s Friday, and as we gear-up to enjoy a long weekend, let us not forget the reason we get to enjoy the long weekend. A time of remembrance of those who have given their lives in service of the United States of America. In the spirit of Memorial Day, I thought I’d share with you a WWII book from Sarah Sundin. It just so happens that the kindle version of this book is on sale on amazon!

Today’s feature book is: Anchor In The Storm by Sarah Sundin
