From the Back of the Book:
Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.
Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?
Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.
Sarah Sundin is actually a new author for me to read, and on top of that, I haven't even read the first two books in this series. So, in spite of the author being new and beginning with the third book in the series, I loved reading through this novel and the story of Kay Jobson. Sundin's re-telling of WWII history inter-woven with her fictional characters was superb. I love how these historical stories bring out aspects of history that I didn't know. I didn't realize that while there was conflict going on in Europe during WWII, there were also issues in India. The characters were believable and interesting, and the author did a great job describing all that the characters were feeling during their time overseas. This book was great and I'm looking forward to picking up the first two books in the series also. You can see pictures and video from this era on Sarah Sundin's Pinterest page by clicking here.
