Sarah Sundin is back and you’ll not want to miss out on A Memory Between Us, Book Two in the Wings of Glory series. I was very happy when the chance to review her second book came around because Sarah is one of my favorite authors.
I adored the first book (A Distant Melody) and while it’s not necessary to read the books in order, I recommend you read them both! Sarah made my list of “favorite authors” with her first book, and I happily devoured the second book in this series.
A Memory Between Us refers back to the first book here and there, but enough details are given so as a reader you never feel lost or like you’ve missed out on something. The second book takes off with Major Jack Novak, (older brother of Walt Novak from A Distant Melody) a B-17 pilot who crashes his plane and ends up spending six weeks in the hospital where he meets beautiful and aloof army nurse, Lieutenant Ruth Doherty.
Twenty three years old and responsible for her three siblings, Ruth has assumed the huge weight of caring for her family after the death of her parents. Devoted to her job and family, she dutifully works to send money home to her Aunt Pauline who is watching her younger siblings. Because of her responsibilities, Ruth feels she has no time for friends and leisure, much less the pursuit of a romantic relationship.
As World War II rages on, Ruth and Jack’s friendship begins to deepen and awaken feelings of romance in both of them. Ruth has a horrible secret in her past and is convinced she will never be able to trust anyone. As she fights to keep up her emotional brick wall and hold Jack at a distance, Jack’s patience and charm makes it very difficult not to fall for him.
A Memory Between Us is the perfect combination of a beautiful love story and rich historical facts which makes it a wonderful read. I highly recommend this book!
Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
