What I’m Reading Wednesday

13 Aug

Sarah Sundin’s Wings of the Nightingale series wraps up beautifully with the finale, In Perfect Time (released Aug. 1). World War II-era fans will appreciate Sundin’s attention to detail from Lt. Roger Cooper piloting a C-47 in enemy territory to Lt. Kay Jobson’s role as an Army Air Force flight nurse.

Sundin’s latest series centers around a trio of flight nurses who become friends and find love while serving during the war. After touching briefly on Kay’s character in the previous two novels, In Perfect Time delves deep into a past in which she was constantly put down and disappointed by her father.

Kay runs away to a life of servitude as a nurse and freedom from her cruel family. But Kay believes she’s in control juggling multiple boyfriends, never letting a relationship develop further than dating.

Meanwhile, Roger has also escaped a past that disappointed him and left him to believe he was of little value.In-Perfect-TimeThe two broken people find the encouragement and love in each other, but life goals and misconceptions keep them apart and fighting against God’s will for their lives.

While the story focuses on Roger and Kay’s relationship, the novel is also rich in historical detail. Sundin writes of the 802nd Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron, as well as an incident based on the true account of 26 flight nurses and medics of the 807th MAETS who crash-landed in Nazi-occupied Albania in late 1943. Sundin aimed to highlight some of the unsung heroes of World War II.

Sundin has stopped by A Writer’s Purpose a few times the last couple of years to promote past novels. Check out this Q and A after the release of the first novel of the Wings of Nightingale series, With Every Letter.

Sundin is celebrating the release of In Perfect Time with a fun giveaway. Check it out!
