A Girl Scout Troop Joins the Battle of the Atlantic
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Ginny Mathis was finished with nursing school and had no intention of staying rooted in the Outer Banks—then war broke out. With her father away, she feels duty-bound to stay and help her mother and younger sister. While working as a clerk for the Oregon Inlet ferry, naval officers ask Ginny and others to be watchful for German U-boats reportedly spotted in the area. So to help occupy her teenage sister, Ginny enlists the Girl Scout troop she leads to help watch for suspicious activity along the coast. 
Timothy Elliott is no stranger to death. As a British reporter working with the M-6, he’s numb to the losses of war after two years of fighting the Germans. Maybe that’s why he volunteered for this mission—to connect with an ex-German naval officer who stole the Furor’s battle plan for the Atlantic war. When the boat giving him passage to New York is bombed near the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Tim is thrown from the boat and wakes up in the care of a group of young girls.
Ginny follows her sneaky sister on a clandestine mission and discovers the shipwreck victim. Ginny knows she must take charge, but is this man the enemy, or does he hold secrets that could turn the tide of the Battle of the Atlantic in the allies’ favor?

    Girl Scouts to the Rescue!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Jan 02, 2023

    Intrigue, adventure, and romance during WWII, and it all happens near our American shores! Author Patti Smith Hall kept me turning the pages to see if an escaped German officer could be found before he did irreparable harm to our war effort. I love historical fiction and I learned so much about the dangerous activity that occurred near the Outer Banks of North Carolina between January and August 1942. Smith weaves true facts into her fictional story that revolves around Ginny Mathis, Timothy Elliot, and a Girl Scout troop eager to be detectives. Could a troop of Girl Scouts help capture this German spy? On My Honor has great characters, a budding romance, and an inspiring faith element that's been woven into its plot. It also introduced me to The Battle of the Atlantic, and the nearly 400 ships that were sunk off of Cape Hatteras during these perilous months! This book is a compelling addition to the Heroines of WWII series, and I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.
