Sarah Sundin has been working on a series that I’ve fallen in love with — Wings of Glory. I’m very sad that this series has come to an end. As you may recall, I loved the first two. She outdid herself with the last one, Blue Skies Tomorrow.
Blue Skies Tomorrow is the third book in the Wings of Glory trilogy. This series covers the lives of three brothers who are all fighter pilots in World War II. The great thing about this series is that while all the books are related, they can all be read as stand-alone novels. Each book covers the same period of time, but from the perspective of each of the brothers point of view.
The most recent book is about Ray. Ray is the only one of the three brothers who actually WANTS to be a minister like their father. Kind-hearted & peace-loving his father gives him grief about his personality. He runs into Helen, a girl he knew in his childhood.
Helen is the widow of a childhood acquaintance of theirs. She has a small boy and is living with her in-laws, who provide well for her financially. Dating Ray doesn’t go over well with the family. There are some screwed up things going on and things just pile up in the way of Helen & Ray.
I’m sure it’s not a spoiler to say that the do get together in the end. It’s the way end, though, like the last 3 pages! I liked this book a lot. The story moved along well. The main characters were not all open books at the beginning and she handled Helen’s family situation with finesse. It wasn’t graphic but made you empathize with Helen’s situation. I also liked the natural blending of God in the characters lives.
I recommend Blue Skies Tomorrow to anyone who likes historical romances, especially those set in world war II. Excellent book!
