Okay, First I must admit I am an Army Girl. Short of allowing my boys to go to Annapolis, I am not interested in the Navy. Well, before this book anyway!
I loved this story. I loved the characters, all of them. I loved their integrity, their love for the Navy and their Country. I admit, it took a few chapters to get me hooked. But, after that I was totally enthralled in this story.
Don Brown has written many novels involving the Navy, but this is my first time to read him. I will be sure to look up his other books to get my hands of those too. I am a new fan of Mr. Don Brown. He knows just how to weave a story together that you do not want to put down. He creates characters that you love, and others who you will hate.
This particular story is about the President’s daughter, a graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy who is serving on board a ship in the China Sea. At the same time China decides that is wants to regain control of Taiwan (with a new leader in China). So there is a war brewing and the President’s daughter is right in the middle of it.
I really cannot say enough about the characters and the story that Don Brown so expertly wove together. He brings in a great deal of expertise, but not so much that you are overwhelmed. Simply put, I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to read more by him!!
