Book Review: Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin

About the Book: Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit, but at least his stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life. As he courts Helen Carlisle, a young war widow and mother who conceals her pain under a frenzy of volunteer work, the sparks of their romance set a fire that flings them both into peril. After Ray leaves to fly a combat mission at the peak of the air war over Europe, Helen takes a job in a dangerous munitions yard and confronts an even graver menace in her own home. Will they find the courage to face their challenges? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

My Thoughts: Blue Skies Tomorrow is Book 3 in the Wings of Glory series. I also reviewed A Distant Melody, the first book of the series. I'm only sorry I didn't get in on the blog tour for the 2nd one!

I definitely enjoyed this book as much as the first. Though part of a series, Blue Skies Tomorrow works as a standalone book as well.

Sundin does not shy away from tackling serious issues in her works of fiction! This book tackles abuse, the effects of fighting in the war, reasons for wanting to fight and not wanting to, expectations, appearances and more.

The characters are well-developed and interesting, the storyline keeps moving and the history is captivating - all in all, two thumbs up!
