Blue Skies Tomorrow
by Sarah Sundin
The book is a labelled as a historical romance, but it is really a thrilling drama with an underlying romance theme that pulls it all together. It is so fantastically written with many obstacles and challenges thrown in the way of the main characters that it will draw you in deeper and deeper until you are entirely captivated.
What a refreshing and exciting read! It has a plot that builds and twists all the way to the end. It certainly kept my nose buried in this book with pages turning quickly to see what in the world could possibly happen next. This is one of best novels I have read in a long time!
The author was creative in the way she developed many layers to the main characters as the plot was built. With each plot twist we are taken to a deeper level of these complex main characters. Life lessons are learned through dealing with the many obstacles and lives are dramatically changed through decisions made and the manner conflicts are resolved. More importantly, through the experiences the characters are deepening their faith and trust in God. We can apply these spiritual lessons learned by the characters to our own lives as we also learn to trust God through all trials we are faced with.
This book is the third in a series called Wings of Glory but from what I could tell it can be read independently from the other two books. I am a sucker for books in a series and I will soon be reading the other two books in this series and will watch for new titles by this author.
Disclosure: Litfuse Publicity Group provided me with a complimentary copy of this book as part of their blog tours program.
About the book:
Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit, but at least his stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life. As he courts Helen Carlisle, a young war widow and mother who conceals her pain under a frenzy of volunteer work, the sparks of their romance set a fire that flings them both into peril. After Ray leaves to fly a combat mission at the peak of the air war over Europe, Helen takes a job in a dangerous munitions yard and confronts an even graver menace in her own home. Will they find the courage to face their challenges? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?
