Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love
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.
My thoughts and giveaway:
I have been wanting to read this series and I am glad I finally got around to with this book.
Once again we have a WWII book but this time we are seeing it from the perspective of pilots and nurses. Sarah did a great job of bringing this book to life. I could easily picture what was taking place. But she didn’t over describe, she did just enough to give you a picture what the area looked like and then moved on to push the plot forward.
The book alternates between character development and moving the plot. I thought Sarah did a wonderful job with this as well, peppering each throughout the book.
What I also liked was how Sarah took a potentially difficult character, like Kay, one we might not normally like and made her likeable. Even though she uses men we see her brokenness. This softened me towards her and had me rooting for her redemption.
Roger is a torn hero with a sad past himself. He has had his own struggles with women and is afraid of crossing the line now that has found Jesus. He also struggles with his self-worth, just like Kay. Roger is a drummer, which made me like him even more since my husband is a drummer, plus I like anything musical in a character.
What I probably loved most about this book was that is was saturated in God’s grace. The message in here is one we all need and often struggle to grasp. Sarah did a fabulous job of weaving the gospel in this book without overpowering the reader.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance and some WWII history. And even though this is the third book in the series it really is a stand alone novel, so don’t worry if you haven’t read the first two (I haven’t).
