Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin


Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit, but at least his stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life. As he courts Helen Carlisle, a young war widow and mother who conceals her pain under a frenzy of volunteer work, the sparks of their romance set a fire that flings them both into peril. After Ray leaves to fly a combat mission at the peak of the air war over Europe, Helen takes a job in a dangerous munitions yard and confronts an even graver menace in her own home. Will they find the courage to face their challenges? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

My take:~

Sarah Sundin completes her Wings of Glory trilogy with the stellar Blue Skies Tomorrow, the story of the eldest Novak brother, Ray and young war widow, Helen Carlisle. A talented researcher, Sarah's attention to historical detail is second to none which makes her books educational as well as entertaining! Tackling issues often avoided in Christian Fiction, Sarah addresses spousal abuse, dysfunctional families, racial discrimination and more while weaving a tender love story alongside a fearful man's heroic adventure. The World War II era comes alive as do the characters, with all their flaws and insecurities, and the strength that comes from deep held faith and convictions. Blue Skies Tomorrow will engage, evoke heartfelt emotions and deeply satisfy.

Available August 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Rel - thank you so much for the fabulous - and very quotable :) - review. I'm so glad you enjoyed Ray & Helen's story. And as for "talented researcher"....more like obsessive compulsive, but I'll take it :)

I love, love, love Sarah Sundin's work. I devoured all three of the books in her Wings of Glory series. I'd not been a fan of WWII romances before, but I read hers and found a must-read author. She's a masterful storyteller. Her lovably imperfect characters wing their way into my heart and stay there. It's rare that I can remember characters' names, but Walt and Allie, Jack and Ruth, and Ray and Helen are so well-written that they became some of my favorite fictional friends.

I'm sooo excited because I only live a couple of hours away from Sarah and get to attend her book release party for Blue Skies Tomorrow today. =D
