In Perfect Time

I jumped at the opportunity to read "In Perfect Time" by Sarah Sundin. I especially enjoy fiction set in historic times and since the anniversary of D-Day in June, I've been particularly interested in novels that take place in the 1940's.  "In Perfect Time" didn't disappoint me.

Set primarily in Europe during World War II the novel follows Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson and those she serves with. Kay is an especially engaging character. She has flaws, but her enormous strengths of character see her through the difficult times. There is romance and history and a strong faith component. The plot takes many twists, and I especially liked the main characters deepening in faith and friendship as the years moved forward.

This is the third volume in the "Wings of Glory" series, and I plan to read the other two as well. I would very much like a sequel to this book. I'd like to know what life was like for Kay and friends when they returned to America. Sarah Sundin, we want more of Kay, Mellie and Georgie!

 Kay is just about the same age as my mother was during the war. My mother worked for the Navy in Connecticut and I always enjoyed her stories a lot. Though their stories are very different "In Perfect Time," evoked memories of my mother and her friends. She kept up friendships that started during her years working for the Navy throughout her life.

Many thanks to the Litfuse Publicity Group  for this reading opportunity.

July was the travel and birthday fun month and August has been a time to catch up on goals. I started physical therapy and am moving along with my exercise program. I've also scheduled a few long delayed medical appointments and will make the next few appointments by the end of the month. I've still got the ongoing decluttering to do, but a bag of clothes is sorted and ready to be given away. I hope to add to it and bring it over on Thursday. Next group of goals: a new computer, more blogging and more reading.

As always, thanks for visiting and hope you're having a terrific Tuesday. Take good care.

Please note: I was given a copy of "In Perfect Time" to review, but the opinions are all mine.

You are doing great with the decluttering. You know the saying, "Inch by inch, life's a cinch. Yard by yard, life is hard." So just keep inching your way through the sorting. Look at it long-range and big results will show.
I love reading WWII and Civil War stories. I admire the heroes of those times. I would like to think I would be as brave as some. History continues to repeat itself with persecution though. It is difficult for me to comprehend such hate that terrorizes other human beings. - - - - - and sorry to end on a note like that because your post was so uplifting!

Sounds like a great series.
I'm going to write it down and see if our library caries any of these titles.

I love Lynda's comment above: "inch by inch". Such a good reminder for us all :)
