"A Memory Between Us" by Sarah Sundin *Book Review

Memory Between Us, A: A Novel (Wings of Glory)Lieutenant Ruth Doherty fiercely guards her heart against all prospective suitors, especially the proud and handsome Major Jack Novak. As a WWII nurse, Ruth faces marriage proposals and interested suitors on a daily basis. No one has been able to break through her defenses. Will Jack succeed?

I thoroughly enjoyed the story. You can tell that Sundin did her research. In fact, her great-uncle was an Air Force pilot who flew B-17s during the attack on Pearl Harbor and who also achieved many of the same feats the story's hero Jack Novak also attempts. The novel is rich in historical details, especially in regard to the details on flight and nursing. The characters were engaging and interesting. I easily read the entire book in a couple of days. There were times that it was hard to put down because I wanted to know what would happen next.

This book would be of particular interest to those who enjoy historical fiction set during World War II. The author brings the battles to life and enlightens the reader to the challenges faced by the hundreds of servicemen and women during the war. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the story interesting. A delightful read, I look forward to reading more of Sundin's work in the future. This is the second book in the Wings of Glory series.


I received a complimentary copy of the book to facilitate my review. I was not obligated to give a positive endorsement. The opinions expressed are my own honest thoughts of the book.
