mary's book basket ~ "blue skies tomorrow" by sarah sundin

Christian Inspirational author Sarah Sundin made me stay up all night in order to finish her latest novel "Blue Skies Tomorrow". Well to be honest she didn't make me stay up, I just could not put it down. I had to find out what would happen to our hero and heroine.

Set during the second World War, Sundin brings the home front to life with bond drives, bandage rolling parties and victory gardens. You are drawn into the daily life of war widow Helen Carlisle who is just trying to keep it all together while raising her toddler son. She meets Lt. Raymond Novak, who prefers the pulpit to the cockpit and things get interesting.

We follow their new relationship which is constantly under strain with interference from both outside sources and their internal individual struggles.  The most interesting thing that Sundin does though is allow the reader to make their own judgments as to the root of the couples issues. I am not going to give away the story but let me tell you it packs an emotional punch. I laughed, I cried, I got mad and I sighed. This story is a journey of healing, forgiveness and self reliance. It is a page turner and believe me you won't be able to put it down.

This is the third novel in the Wings of Glory series but believe me when I say it's stands on it's own. This book is available now at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Happy Reading,
