The plot alone makes this book stand out, I could go on and on for hours about how well done this book was plotted out. The historic settings were rich, and authentic. The history was woven into the story with great care. I think Ms. Sundin got the balance perfectly. The writing and dialog were excellent, I lost myself in the story. There were...more

I truly loved Ray and Helen's story. I loved going back to that special place in time. Both of these amazingly chiseled characters are by far my favorite of the Wings Of Glory family. Their story is, to mean, the most powerful and meaningful of them all.
Helen, a widow, rai...more
Ray Novak's and Helen Carlise's story is hard to put down. Helen really has had a hard life, and wants a better life for her young son Jay-Jay. Ray Novak wants to be a preacher like his Dad, but he doesn't want to be pegged for a coward.
Can these two different people put their lives together? We travel back to England and then...more
This wartime novel holds all of the qualifications for a good, clean romantic novel. The characters captivate you through the pages and leaves you (cheesy as it may sound) cheering them on through their challenges.

A bit more googling made me realize WWII has always been just beneath the surface of my memories because of the Bataan Death March. My tour of Corregidor was absolutely way more soul-searing than any memorial I've visited elsewhere.
And now I have another thing with which...more
This is an enjoyable but rough book to read. It's not because it isn't a good story but because of some of the content. Sundin touches on two controversial subjects: the Port Chicago disaster of 1944 and domestic violence. The series is set in Antioch, California, which is close to the former town of Port Chic...more
I have this habit of reading a page here, there, and then piecing the whole story together. I couldn’t do that with Blue Skies Tomorrow. There was a reason behind every action by every character and reading the book page by page was vital to...more
