My Special Scavenger Hunt Guest: Sarah Sundin

Today as part of the scavenger hunt, I'm hosting Sarah Sundin. She’s another one of the authors participating in all the fun. (You'll visit her blog on the next stop in the scavenger hunt!)

Sarah Sundin is the award-winning author of ten novels, including The Sea Before Us. Her novels When Tides Turn and Through Waters Deep were named to Booklist’s “101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years.” A mother of three, Sarah lives in California, works on-call as a hospital pharmacist, and teaches Sunday school.


Here's a little bit about her newest novel The Sea Before Us: As D-day approaches, American naval officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton is teamed up with Dorothy Fairfax, a British officer. Once they piece together family and reconnaissance photos to map Normandy, will Wyatt’s bombardment plans destroy what Dorothy loves most?

To find out more about this book go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Christianbook.com

Join me in welcoming Sarah today!

Four World War II Sights to See in England

by Sarah Sundin



England is a popular and scenic tourist destination for good reason. If the World War II era interests you, don’t miss these sights!

1) Churchill War Rooms

Deep underground in the Westminster district, Prime Minister Winston Churchill met with his cabinet during the dark days of the Blitz. It’s fascinating to see how the military staff and personnel lived and worked, as you view the cabinet room, map room, and typists’ rooms—as well as a museum on Churchill’s life. Not to miss for anyone who enjoyed Darkest Hour!

2) Imperial War Museum

In London, this beautiful museum showcases equipment and stories of England at war from World War I to modern times. The World War II exhibit includes a German V-2 rocket, a cutaway peek inside a Lancaster bomber, and one of the “little boats” that evacuated the British troops from Dunkirk. Kid-friendly too!

3) Imperial War Museum at Duxford

A train ride up to Cambridge, a cab ride to Duxford, and you arrive at a gem! Duxford served as an RAF airfield during the Blitz and as a US fighter field later on, and this air museum has excellent interactive exhibits about the air war. Bonus: you may even see an RAF Spitfire and a US B-17 Flying Fortress take to the air! We did!

4) Southwick House

Off the beaten path—and you have to make reservations and get security clearance in advance—but worth it. This little-known manor just north of Portsmouth served as Allied Naval Headquarters for D-day, and Gen. Dwight Eisenhower set up his battle headquarters on the grounds. The map room is a sight to see! And in the library, Eisenhower made his momentous decision on June 5, 1944 to launch the invasion on June 6, even while a storm raged outside.

Sarah Sundin at Southwick House, Southwick, England.
So while enjoying your tea and crumpets, take in a little modern history as well!

  5. I love any historical fiction that's well written in any era, except I have a difficult time with biblical fiction. Perhaps its that the lessons we are to learn from these personages are sacred, and at times too much liberty is taken with creative license. Keep up the great writing Jody!
