A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin Review and a Contest!

Can a nurse and a bomber pilot during WWII find love,
or will the war separate them forever?

A Memory Between Us is the second book in the Wings of Glory series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.

Major Jack Novak has never failed to meet a challenge--until he meets army nurse Lieutenant Ruth Doherty. When Jack lands in the army hospital after a plane crash, he makes winning Ruth's heart a top priority mission. But he has his work cut out for him. Not only is Ruth focused on her work in order to support her orphaned siblings back home, she carries a shameful secret that keeps her from giving her heart to any man. Can Jack break down her defenses? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?

My Thoughts:
This is a precious story set in one of my favorite time periods - WWII! This was just the thing to mentally get away and enjoy two people falling in love during very difficult circumstances. My heart really went out to Ruth, because she had absolutely no control over her circumstances, and she was trying to do the best she could. That she was beautiful wasn't her fault either, and she had to put up with all kinds of nonsense from both men and women over that fact! I admired her character, and appreciated all she did for her family.

This really was a sweet story with realistic difficulties for all the characters to overcome. I highly recommend this story!

I haven't read her first one yet, either. I guess I better get cracking or I won't be able to catch up!

Kim - thanks for the fantastic review! I'm glad you enjoyed Jack & Ruth's story.

Kav - this book stands alone so you don't have to read both :)
