Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin

About the Book
In a time of peril, can they find the courage to confront their fears and embrace a love that lasts?
When her husband becomes a casualty of the war in the Pacific, Helen Carlisle throws herself into volunteering for the war effort to conceal her feelings. But keeping up appearances as the grieving widow of a hometown hero is taking its toll. Soon something is going to give.
Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit. His stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life--and a convenient excuse to ignore his deepest fear. When the beautiful Helen catches his eye and captures his heart, he is determined to win her hand.
But when Ray and Helen are called upon to step out in faith and put their reputations and their lives on the line, can they meet the challenges that face them? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

Filled with drama, daring, and all the romance of the WWII era, Blue Skies Tomorrow is the captivating final book in the popular Wings of Glory series.

My Thoughts
Another amazing novel by Sarah Sundin! I was sad to see this awesome series end but it went out with a bang! I was once again put on an emotional roller-coaster as I read this story. Especially the section where you knew stuff that most of the characters didn't and they were making the wrong decisions that could have terrible consequences. I was honestly yelling at them and had to put the book done for a bit! This author has the astounding talent of being able to make you scream in frustration at the same time as yelling how much you love the book. Since Ray wasn't in much of the previous two books I was really excited to get to know him and he completely surpassed my expectations! He was such an awesome guy who had the perfect blend of softness and strength that a pastor needs. I felt so bad for him in his struggle between wanting to meet the requirements of what society considered being a “man” and not wanting to be responsible for taking a life. And Helen, I cannot believe all that she had to go through from her late husband and her father-in-law! It was amazing how she came out all the stronger despite their attempts to put her down.  I loved seeing the characters from the previous two books and getting to see how their stories where going! In closing, I absolutely adored this entire series so much that it's hard to put into words. They were those books that give you a happy giddy feeling each time you think about them.

I once again made a playlist of the songs mentioned in this book which you can find HERE
