This is a great romance with a little spying included. These two friends from high school meet up again a few months before the war starts. Mary works at the Boston Navy Yard and Jim is a sailor who will be shipping out soon to be an escort for British Convoys. This is a few months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. There is sabotage going on and Mary decides to spy a little because most people tend to overlook her. What will happen to her and Jim?I really had a hard time putting this book down. I received this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion.
