A Memory Between Us contest and book review preview!

Today I'm thrilled to be able to tell you a little about author Sarah Sundin's newest release, A Memory Between Us, book two in her World War II-era Wings of Glory series. To pique your curiousity, here's a bit about the novel:

Can they overcome the past to find a brighter future together?

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 ouf for him. Not only is Ruth focused on her work in order to support her orphaned siblings back home, she also is determined not to give her heart to any man.

As the danger and tension of World War II rise to a fever pitch, Jack and Ruth will need each other more than ever. Can Jack break down her defenses? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?

From the English countryside to the perilous skies over France, A Memory Between Us takes you on a journey through love, forgiveness, and sacrifice.

Review: I promise, one of these days I'll catch up. My full review of this novel is coming soon, but till then let me leave you with this promise - if you love the World War II time period like I do, and you crave rich, meaty, detailed historicals, Sarah Sundin delivers in spades. I adore the romance between Ruth and Jack (and not just because the heroine and I share the same name, LOL!). Sundin takes her characters through the fire and back again, and the refining journey is a page-turning adventure that tugs at the heartstrings. I love how Sundin incorporates the biblical story of Ruth into her novel - it's simply beautiful watch the love story mirror scripture as it develops. Sundin is a must-read author and I look forward to her future books!
