Book Review: A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin (and a GIVEAWAY!)

A Memory Between Us is the second book in the Wings of Glory series by Sarah Sundin. And this one was just as good as the first. Once again, I enjoyed reading a story set during WWII. The characters were likeable and the drama exciting.

Memory Between Us, A: A Novel (Wings of Glory)In A Memory Between Us , Major Jack Novak, Army Air Corps pilot, meets Ruth Doherty, a nurse at the hospital where Jack has gone after a plane crash. Although Jack falls in love with Ruth, there are things from her past that she cannot let go of and she refuses his offers of companionship. As the war heats up, Jack and Ruth find themselves needing one another in ways they never dreamed. But the past continues to interfere. What will it take to bring the two together? 

As I said in my review of A Distant Melody, the only thing I didn't like about this book was the technical language used throughout in describing Jack's missions. But I just skimmed those parts and read on. I think if those parts were shortened somehow, it could have made a better book, but that's just my opinion. It's the only reason I didn't give the book a 5.

My favorite part was when Ruth was facing danger from one of the other characters who threatened her. What happened? You'll just have to read it to find out (pp. 390-391, if you already have a copy)!

I'm looking forward to the third book. This is a writer to watch for in Christian fiction.

I give A Memory Between Us 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

Sarah Sundin is an on-call hospital pharmacist and holds a BS in chemistry from UCLA and a doctorate in pharmacy from UC San Francisco. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children.

Judylynn - thanks for the fabulous review. Funny thing - my male readers want MORE of the technical language :) But I'm glad you enjoyed the story!
