Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, 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 to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?
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.
After waiting so long for Kay and Roger's story I am quite happy to say it completely met my expectations! Sarah Sundin has once again penned a beautiful novel that swept me away to another time and place!
We met Kay and Roger a bit in the previous two books but I was so excited to really get to know them because they were those characters who you just knew had so many hidden layers and I couldn't wait to dive in!
I was so angry at Kay's family, especially her father, for the lies they fed her about herself, her worth, and God. It was no wonder she turned out the way she did and it was so beautiful to watch God shatter those lies and show her how much she was loved. I loved how much Kay grew throughout the book and I totally loved her.
And Roger was awesome too! I loved how he listened to God's direction to give certain things away that made all the difference in lives!
Their love story was really cool even if it did take them a bit to realize that they should be together!
Everything about this book was absolutely beautiful though I do think it was the first of Sarah's books that didn't make me cry, which was probably a good thing since I mostly read it at work and that would have been awkward.

Don't miss Sarah Sundin's hot-off-the-press novel, In Perfect Time. Publishers Weekly gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up: “Sundin excels at well-researched historical detail . . . with such accurate depictions of culture and setting that we are fully immersed in the times as well as in the story. The strength of relationships forged in war and the apprehension of God in times of trouble infuse this well-crafted novel with substance and light.”
