Bonjour, Friends ~ Welcome back to the Video Café. This week, we get to share our coffee break with fellow historical & WWII author — the fabulous Sarah Sundin! (And stick around to the end of the coffee break for our usual #Giveaway…)
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. So let’s grab our cup of morning java and chat with Sarah…
BONJOUR — and welcome to the Café, Sarah! I’m sure I’m not the only reader out there who is ready for fall weather and a steamy mug of coffee to match… So, what are you drinking and where’s your café this lovely, almost-autumn morning?
We love that you’re joining us from beautiful California today! Since it’s warm and sunny, we’re inclined to prop up our feet and stay a while. Would you mind to share a quick devotion with us? What scripture is ministering to you right now and why?
And it’s the theme verse for Through Waters Deep! Thank you for sharing this connection with us. What a reminder of God’s grace and the assurance that He has a plan through every season. We’d love to hear more about this new series — can you give us a special sneak peek?
I have a copy of this book and I cannot WAIT to read it! (I also have a great love for the WWII generation, so the era plus the intrigue in your story is hooking me right in. 🙂
This is a question we haven’t asked much yet, but we’re curious to know a little fun fact about you. What’s your favorite movie? (Yes – so sorry. You can only choose one!)
Speaking of fun… What’s one of those side-stitch laughter moments you’ve had as an author?
Sarah – you handled that with such sweetness and grace! I would have been so embarrassed too, but it sounds like you just loved on that reader. Whew! How kind of you.
We’ve loved chatting with you today. Please come back and visit with your next novel? We want to get to know you a bit better — and to keep reading the amazing (and so deeply researched) books you write. Blessings, Love!

- Sarah talked about the storyline in her new novel, Through Waters Deep, and here’s a bit of mystery to it. Can you usually figure out the mystery in a book or novel, or are you often surprised at the “big reveal”?
