All of You by Sarah Monzon

About the Book
Sometimes the past reaches forward to bring hope to the future.
England, 1944
With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears...or countless people may die.
Maryland, Present Day
Jacquelyn Rogers can rebuild anything...except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she's worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a cocky former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.
After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s military dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection.

My Thoughts
Goodness this book was even better than the first and that one was off the charts amazing so you can only imagine how good this one is! Michael. Oh where to begin? He was a hero in every sense of the word. He fought for our country but was humble about it and even though he was dealt a horrid blow because of a freak accident I admired how he was determined not to let the darkness win. Yes he had questions for God, and yes he got upset at his situation, but he fought to find the positives and search for God’s purpose through it all.
I also loved Jack. She was a smart, strong, independent woman, but wasn’t a jerk about that fact. Yes her brothers’ overprotectiveness grated on her but she was also able to see that it came from love.
Both Michael and Jack saw themselves as less than ideal but they saw all the good in each other. And I loved watching them help the other person see the good in themselves. They were so great together and even though someone was being pigheaded, the sparks were undeniable!
The historical WWII story was also amazing! I loved Alice’s spunk and the budding relationship between her and Henry!
The two stories flowed seamlessly and it was so cool to see how they connected in the end!
