With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin

About the Book
Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she's never met--even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence--he's been trying to escape his infamous name for years.
As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other's true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing--and true love.

My Thoughts
After absolutely adoring the author's previous series I was super excited to join this new adventure but at the same time a little worried that it would measure up. As soon as I started this book I knew that my worries were for not as I fell in love with this whole new cast of characters. My heart broke for all of the things that the hero and heroine had had to go through as they grew up, things that unfortunately followed them into adulthood. And I absolutely loved watching as they overcame their fears and the things that had been hurting them for years to become the people that God intended them to be. Both Mellie and Tom were really unique characters that I totally loved! The secondary characters were also very interesting and I especially liked Tom's dog!
It was really cool to get another look at the complicated job of flight nursing that I first got a glimpse of in A Memory Between Us. It's amazing all the things that these woman were able to do and how determined and brave they were in the face of danger and opposition.
This book wasn't quite the emotional roller-coaster that the Wings of Glory Series was but there were a decent amount of emotional ups and downs that were once again amazingly written. All in all I loved this book and I was really happy to have book two On Distant Shores on my shelf ready to read!

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