3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy story. Liked the ending!, August 29, 2011
This review is from: Blue Skies Tomorrow: A Novel (Wings of Glory) (Paperback)
The best part is the ending. I didn't enjoy the third book in the Wings of Glory series as much as I did the first two. Maybe it's because I don't enjoy reading such heavy material during my times of leisure. I felt the social ills that consumed the story created a sense of tension and unease most of the time I was reading.

The story begins with widowed Helen Carlisle dealing ineffectively with her young son`s temper tantrums. But it doesn't end there. Other than Lt. Novak, most of the people in Helen's life are a disappointment to her and some are actually harmful. Eventually, she learns to stand up for herself, but it takes a long time.

I also felt some of the situations were too unbelievable; especially, the section after Lt. Raymond Novak`s return from his final mission.

Blue Skies Tomorrow is a heavy story. I felt like I needed a respite from my reading--times of normalcy where nothing dramatic and harmful was happening.

I know I'm in the minority in my rating for Blue Skies Tomorrow, but I have to be honest in how the story affected me. I encourage you to read it and form your own opinion.

If you have teenage or younger daughters, I encourage you to read Blue Skies Tomorrow before giving it to them to read. This will give you the opportunity to discuss some of the issues and bad behaviors of the characters before she reads it. I made the mistake of telling my daughter she could read it before I did; based on my enjoyment of the first two books in the series. This one dealt with issues she has never been exposed to. That's not necessarily bad, but I would have preferred knowing ahead of time so I could make a more informed decision.
