Earlier this summer we had one Saturday that was a bit of a summer "snow day" for my family. The weather outside was unbearably hot so we all stayed inside. I picked up Blue Skies Tomorrow and settled down into one of our lazyboys for a long read.

After reading The Sweetest Thing by Elizabeth Musser recently and greatly enjoying it, I thought I would give another historical Christian fiction book a whirl. The Sweetest Thing had elements of romance in the story, but it is not what I would call a "Christian Romance". Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin is a Christian romance. It is the third book in her Wings of Glory series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone novel.

Storyline: Helen's husband, Jim, died two years earlier in WWII. She lives in a home owned by her father in law and receives a monthly stipend from him that comes from her husband's life insurance (that he named his parents custodians of). Early on in the story, you get clues that Helen acts the part of the grieving widow but does not have the feelings of one. You learn why as the story goes along. The reasons why are at the core of this story. Ray Novak is an old childhood friend of Helen. He returns from flight instructor school. His desire is to be a pastor, but knows he must serve in the armed forces during the war. His two brothers are also serving. The story primarily focuses on their romance and the journey of their coming together, apart, and then...

Writing: This story is written fine. I was discussing with my husband this weekend how the choice of words tells you a lot about the focus of the author in the story. Here's are two examples of Ms. Sundin's writing:
"Ray reached into a blue glass bowl and popped a strawberry into his mouth.

Ahh, the end of the third installment in this series. Oh how I enjoyed it! Well, sometimes my heart was squeezed and twisted as I read of the hero and heroine's misery - and oh my goodness, I truly did NOT see how the author would get them out of the messes they found themselves in! But she did. Brilliant plot and super writing. I had to keep telling myself - they WILL get together in the end, it's a romance! LOL, but I sure couldn't see how. So many good parts, teary parts, parts that left me on the edge of my seat hoping my Kindle's battery would last, and parts that made me sit back in the chair and sigh with pleasure. Once again, loved the attention to detail about planes, missions, army bases all over the world, the service itself, and history of the war. I now have a new favorite genre - WWII romance. For anyone who loves a good romance - and savors descriptive action, these books are for you. And I have a new favorite author - Sarah Sundin!

I truly enjoyed this series about the 3 Novak brothers. Three totally different men who flew planes during World War II and whose experiences were as varied as the women they fell in love with. I was fascinated by the role people at home played and the realistic portrayals of the loss and joy of those who came home forever changed and those who would never return. The author made you feel as if you were there when that plane went down, that death notice was sent and that young father saw his child for the first time that was born while he was recovering from wounds in a far away hospital. The story switches from the war to the home front and deals with social issues as well as trauma, morals and heroism that results in times of war. There is so much covered I can't begin to summarize it. I could not stop until I finished all three books and I will read them again and again. Wonderful, flawed and intriguing characters and very well done.

I have read two of the three books in this series in two days. Sarah Sundin does have a way of mixing action into the story that keeps the reader's interest. This book covers darker topics as some other reviewers commented on. If you are looking for light reading, this may not be your best choice. The story is well written and the characters are well developed. I do feel sorry that Helen didn't readily turn to her family for help, but I realize that sometimes we don't realize that our parents may not want us to run to them for every little thing, but are willing to help us in dire situations, and her situation was dire.

Lt. Raymond Novak knows he is called to be a minister, a fact that has led to women dumping him in the past. Hiding his fear of war from himself, he is happy his war contribution keeps him stateside, where he can pursue an unexpected romance with a beautiful widow, who is caught in her own private hell. The author turns up the heat, taking each of her characters to the edge of their coping abilities, creating great tension for the reader. I loved this, Book #3, in the Wings of Glory Series for the wonderful characters and realistic portrayal of the times. Wonderfully written - keeps me wanting more!

Back with the Novak brothers, their friends and family, loved the book! It started out a little slow and "predictable", but, whoa, didn't stay that way! I could not put it down!
This book has love, war, history lessons, social issues, suspense, redemption, and is a christian book! I liked this series so much I'm going to start on another by this author, Sarah Sundin.
Great escape!
