Sarah Sundin's newest title, Blue Skies Tomorrow, releases today.
I fell in love with Sundin's writing with her debut book, A Distant Melody (see Book Pick, 4/8/2010). Her second book, A Memory Between Us, was equally good or better than the first (see Book Pick 9/17/2010). But this third book, Blue Skies Tomorrow, is far and away the BEST of the bunch.
Here is the back-cover copy, courtesy of Sundin's website: 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?
The three novels follow the stories of the Novak brothers, all B-17 bomber pilots stationed in England during World War II. Each book stands alone...but trust me, after reading one, you'll be compelled to pick up the other two. The books are thoroughly researched, and each page spills over with romance and peril.
In celebration of today's release, Sarah Sundin is conducting a drawing to win a copy of the book and also for a beautiful vintage apron with a photo of the book's cover on the pocket. You can enter the drawing by leaving a comment on her blog, Under His Wings. Tell her I sent you. :) The drawing will be conducted on Friday, August 5, 2011.
Good luck, and here's wishing you blue skies tomorrow!
