Logline

"What the Ocean Divides" is an historical World War II time travel-action-romance from a unique perspective that gives all sides in the war a voice rather than using a broad-brush to color the action and the characters. The Germans are desperate to know the exact date of the Allied invasion, so they can defeat the American and British forces. It's up to Ian Hunter, and a few other heroes to stop them from finding out. Amidst tank battles, bombers ruling the skies, and U-Boat and E-Boat attacks, it seems Ian does not have enough conflict - might as well toss in a Texas ranch girl out to steal his heart. WWII as it's never been written before.
