This is a fascinating book! I realized as I was reading that it was probably part of a series (it is the third book in the Wings of the Nightingale series), and I can guess what might have gone on in previous books, but I was never confused or felt like I missed anything.
Sarah Sundin takes you right inside the cockpit of a WWII transport plane with the pilot and the flight nurses. Her descriptions are so clear that I felt I could see the racks on which the cots were hung and the injured soldiers who were lying there.
In addition, she cuts right through to the hearts of her two main characters, Kay and Roger. These aren't perfect people by any means -- they have deep issues and concerns that are handled graciously by Sundin.
This is a story about love, loss, courage, and strength. It is a book that will allow the reader to grow in his/her faith as the amazing love of Christ shines through.
ABOUT THE BOOK (from the back cover):
Bold, sophisticated, and coy, 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. Can they overcome the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?
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.
