*Starred Review* High on morphine and with a backside full of shrapnel, brash and handsome Major Jack Novak impulsively proposes to his nurse at first sight. But disciplined Lieutenant Ruth Doherty, who also nursed Jack’s younger brother Walt after his amputation, doesn’t date, ever. She has seven orphaned siblings to support, and no time or money for socializing. Jack, whose besetting sin is his pride and whose downfall is his reliance on self rather than God, determines that he will win her over, regardless of the war, his friend Charlie’s good advice, and Ruth’s continued resistance. Sundin’s second wartime inspirational romance set among the pilots of the U.S. Army Air Force stationed in England during WWII is an exceptional read, building on A Distant Melody (2010), but able to stand alone. A riveting tale based on the real-life adventures of her great-uncle, Sundin’s novel features characters living large under emotional and physical stress, while the setting provides invaluable details and insights into the wartime mindset. --Lynne Welch
