GIFT FROM THE SEA
GIFT FROM THE SEA (4) by Anna Schmidt: Schmidt's sequel to Seaside Cinderella, set on Nantucket in 1918, has Maggie Hunter mourning the loss of the man she loved. It seems the war is taking everything. German Stefan Witte was adrift at sea when he was rescued, and now he's in danger, along with those who helped him. Maggie and Stefan cannot quell their feelings for each other, even though they're on opposite sides of the war. When Stefan explains he has information that could change the outcome of the war, Maggie vows to help him. Schmidt knows what readers expect in a love story and delivers on all levels. It's refreshing to see characters with their flaws showing, which makes them appear very real.
