On Distant Shores

Sarah Sundin writes with vivid historical detail that contributes to every aspect of her novel.  The settings and characters are beautifully depicted, and the emotions of the time are tangible.  The Wings of the Nightingale series brings to life the nurses of WWII.  On Distant Shores follows the story of flight nurse Lt. Georgie Taylor and Sgt. John Hutchinson.  Sundin uses a unique and interesting tactic by slightly overlapping the time periods covered between this book and the previous in the series, With Every Letter.  You can read my review of that book here.
On Distant Shores is an excellent edition to this series.  I truly enjoy the focus on the nurses of WWII; it is unique and interesting.  Sundin's characters come to life as you follow the events in the story.  The emotions are real, and the changes in the characters are tangible.  There is a strong Christian worldview and a beautiful theme of relying on Him and following His will for you life.  I would highly recommend this book and this author!
I did receive my copy free in exchange for this honest review.
