Anchor in the Storm tells the story of Jim's sister, Lillian Avery and Jim's best friend, Arch Vanderberg. Lillian has so much to overcome with her disability of a missing leg from the knee down. Not only do people stare and recoil from her, but it is also hard to find a job! I enjoyed seeing her character flourish throughout the story by overcoming such hard obstacles, but she also had much to overcome with her heart. Lillian was good at closing people off so that she could protect her heart, but in reality she was only hurting herself. Arch has something to overcome as well in this story. He has experienced a lot of prejudice from others because of the wealth of his family. Both of these characters have a hard time accepting the fact that people could really love them just because of who they are and not because of physical appearance or money. This story was a good read. I enjoyed seeing the characters grow and watching them both try to solve the problems happening both aboard the USS Ettinger and at Lillian's pharmacy job. I would say some of the book was a little predictable, but a great story non-the-less. Look for book 3 in the Waves of Freedom series coming in Spring 2017 which will the tell story of Lt. Dan Avery and Quintessa Beaumont.
