Book Description
Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love
Bold, sophisticated, and coy, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.
Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer. Can they overcome the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?
Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.

Book Review
 This book is the third book in the Wings of the Nightingale series, but is a stand alone novel that can be read without reading the first two. I personally didn't get a chance to read the first one, but I read the second one and this one and I had no problem hopping into the story. Each book is about a completely different character, with only vague references and connections to the other novels. But, if you have the chance, I would recommend that you read the other ones (just because this author is phenomenal).
Kay Jobson is the type of girl to date every guy that she comes in contact with. Roger Cooper refuses to date period. But when Kay tries to free herself from the lies of her parson/father, Roger feels obligated to lead her to Christ and help her understand God's written word. For months he fights his feelings toward her, but they keep persisting. Between their biblical conversations and the time that they spend together in combat, they become very close and get to a point where no subject is too brutal for discussion. As I watched these two learn that God's grace is sufficient, I was encouraged to believe the same for myself. Possibly my favorite part of this novel is one reoccurring theme; God's grace. That Christ came to save the least of these. That no one can out run God. That the opinions of your family and friends are irrelevant compared to the opinion of God. That no one is too far gone. That's what I loved about it most. There were, of course, other things that it had going for it. It was very interesting to get a peek into history. Like the last novel in this series, it was full of military life and even a few combat scenes. There was never a dull moment and I enjoyed it from page one to page 410. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in military fiction and redemption stories.
D I S C L A I M E R: I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, and that is just what I have given. I was not further compensated to review this product and all thoughts/sentiments expressed above are completely my own and unbiased.
