SOAR LIKE EAGLES BY TERRY WANGARD
What is there not to like about this book? This book is so richly detailed and intriguing. I loved reading about the obstacles the characters conquer while serving our country in World War 2.
Chet and Carol were very careful about allowing anyone to get too close. Carol saw what happened to her friend who married way to quickly. She felt it was best not to have any ties to hold her down. She was not going to do anything rash and have regrets for the rest of her life. Then she met Chet.
She was intrigued but was closely guarding her heart. She thought if she was stationed in France she would be safe.
Chet and Carol each had a job to do but often would think of each other and pray that they were safe.
This was a wonderful romantic story but was very detailed. I felt like I was in the cockpit with Chet. It is amazing to think that the pilots continued to get in the plane over and over again. They had a duty to serve and they served it well.
I loved the last chapter. It was a pleasure to read. Highly recommend. This is a story that leaves you feeling patriotic and proud to be an American. I will be looking for more books by Ms. Wangard to read in the future.
Carol Doucet is the young woman in this story who desires to do her part in the war. She is a society reporter for her hometown paper, but wants to do something worthwhile. She and friends join the Red Cross in order to be of service, and for some girls, to meet young men. Carol longs to follow the troops into the battle areas, but has no idea of the hardships and sorrows, danger and heartbreak that it brings. She is serving in a canteen in the states when she meets a young airman, Chet. They feel an instant rapport and both are saddened that they may never meet again. However, Carol is assigned to one of the airbases in England that Chet flies out of. She doesn’t want to marry him because of the danger they both fact and she doesn’t want that fear. After the invasion of France, Carol follows the battles to help the morale of the soldiers by bringing a little cheer in the form of doughnuts and coffee to them. It reminds them of home.
I was totally engaged in the story of this novel. I thought the descriptive writing about the battle areas and the horrors of war were very convincing. The chances that Carol and Chet will meet again seem remote, however, nothing is impossible. I know readers will enjoy this novel, not only because of the historical significance, but also because of the characters, which you will love.
I was thrilled with the novel to start with, because I love history, like this time period, and this book appeared well-written. However, I found three major problems with it. It quickly became so slow that I often found in boring. Carol and Chet are rarely together, even though they’re both based in England, and the author told every mundane detail of their days, whether or not it served to move the story along, and these routine events were repeated often. As their feelings for each other develop, I could feel no emotion or passion at all between Carol and Chet. They rarely think about one another, miss the other one, or worry about the dangers the other might be facing. There was almost no real romance, and their relationship looked so lackluster it didn’t seem real or believable. Even the ending was dry. I would normally read a book like this in two days. It took me nearly two weeks for this one.
Please, God, give us peace without another World War! 🙏🙏🏽
