On My Nightstand - Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin

Lt. Raymond Novak is the eldest of the Novak brothers. He'd much rather occupy a pulpit than fight in a war. When the Army Air Force decides that hero pilots should be training recruits, Ray gets re-assigned to a paper-pushing job. Is he a coward? Could he handle the rigors of combat?

Helen Carlisle, a widow with a young son, carries a dreadful secret. She's allowed others to call the shots in her life since her marriage to hero, Jim Carlisle. Can she escape the twisted logic that holds her captive and prevents her from accepting the love of a Godly man?

This is the final book in the Wings of Glory series. Although it's a stand-alone novel, you'll get more out of it if you read the previous books.

Sarah Sundin has once again captured the essence of her characters' struggles. She knows how to ramp up the tension and get my pulse racing. I loved the story, the setting details, and the people. At times, I related so much to them that it was difficult to separate my feelings from theirs.

If you haven't read any of Sarah's books, you're missing some wonderful writing and heart-stopping action. While the romance element is strong, there's enough war action to satisfy the males in our audience. This would also be a great gift for the older generation, who lived through this time period.

Great job, Sarah!

I met Sarah at the ACFW Conference this year, and she was such a sweetheart (with a mighty great name, I might add). ;) I look forward to diving into one of her books...I've heard only great things.
