War-Time Romance Continues -- On Distant Shores
On Distant Shores picks up right where With Every Letter left off and immediately draws you back into the lives of an interesting group of nurses and men serving overseas during World War II.
The Wings of the Nightingale series displays Sarah Sundin's masterful touch in placing an intriguing romance right in the middle of a history lesson -- without it feeling like a history lesson. Her attention to detail from personal knowledge and extensive research shines through and brings the story to life. Her characters face real-life challenges in their actions and their feelings that help the reader catch a personal glimpse of what it might have been like to serve on foreign shores.
Although Georgie and Hutch are highlighted as the main characters in this installment, there are many others who round out the story and add interest and depth in important ways.
If you're interested in great Christian fiction set against the backdrop of WWII, I would definitely recommend On Distant Shores.

About On Distant Shores: Caught between the war raging around them and the battles within, two souls long for peace---and a love that remains true.
Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie's cozy life gets more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson.
Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they've made?
With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin weaves an exciting tale of emotion, action, and romance that will leave you wanting more.
