Publisher's Summary

For Jacob and Daniel, two young gay men aboard a US Navy ship in WWII, the risks are high. Not only the risks of injury and death from Japanese planes and submarines, but the risk of discovery. Only a special kind of love is worth taking that chance. But from the moment Daniel meets Jacob's eyes across a battle-scarred deck, he knows he has to try. Being together requires figuring out what it means to be gay in an era when they could be discharged, imprisoned, or worse for admitting the desires of their hearts. Their relationship is measured in stolen moments and rare days of precious leave, with no guarantee there will be a tomorrow. And, if they survive the war, they will need even more luck to keep their love alive through the years to come.
This novel was written as part of the Goodreads M/M Romance Group's 2012 Don't Read in the Closet writing event: Love is Always Write. It won the 2012 LGBT Rainbow Award for Best Gay Historical Romance in 2012 and has been rated by more than 1,300 users on Goodreads with an average rating of 4.41 stars.

Any additional comments?

I almost made a enormous mistake. Because when I was offered a chance to read this story I almost said no because it’s a little outside my usual preferred romance genre era. And that would have been an mistake of gigantic proportion because this book slayed me in all the best ways.

Covering sixty-nine years of friendship, loyalty, and love this story uplifted me, broke my heart a little, then mended it, then filled it up. I love these characters so much.

I don’t know if it was Kaje Harper’s beautiful writing or Kaleo Griffith’s truly phenomenal narration or a combination of the two, but I loved this from start to finish. I was engrossed, enraptured and riveted throughout the entire story.

I haven’t listened to Kaleo Griffith before this audio, but I can assure you I will be grabbing something else of his after this. He takes these characters across their sixty-nine year relationship and ages their voices brilliantly. Do you know how hard that is to do? Believe me, I’ve heard a lot of narrators screw it up, but Griffith does it seamlessly. His performance was pure brilliance.

I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Into Deep Waters is excellent

It was a 5-star read when I first read it, and it's a 5-star on audiobook too. The narrator does a wonderful job all around.

An amazing narrator for a brilliant story....

Millions of truly outstanding stars. The story was brilliant, the characters, the pacing, the LOVE....just EVERYTHING was amazing, and at one point I had tears rolling down my face AND was chuckling at the same time [get towards the end of the story, you'll know which part I mean]. I know I would've have been thrilled to bits with this story if I was a gay guy...Kaje absolutely wrote it from the heart. How CAN it be right that a couple can be in a relationship for 26 years (at that time 1940's to 1960's), and one half of that relationship, Jacob, has to keep everything under wraps from his family and his workmates and go through life as though his other half Daniel, his HEART...his FAMILY doesn't exist?? Stonewall was mentioned at length...and THAT was the catalyst for Jacob to finally find the courage to stick his middle finger up at his father and live his life as he chose. Thank God he had a sister Lily who loved him to bits and dragged both of them into her family, where they became uncles to her children.

As for Kaleo Griffith's narration, well... as he doesn't seem to have done a lot of M/M, I was completely gobsmacked by how fantastic he was!! As Daniel and Jacob got older, Kaleo's voice became more gruff and got deeper...his characterisation was wonderful, and I can't recommend this audio book highly enough. It's on a par with The Tin Box for me...highs and lows in emotion, loads of tears, an incredible story and superb storytelling from the narrator. Congrats all round, and thank you Kaje for your interpretation of the prompt.
