There is a growing interest in WWII fiction--which totally satiates my appetite for this era and my love of all things 1940's. I've long been fascinated by WWII and have an entire room in my basement dedicated to my Grandfather's memorabilia from his four year stint in the war. I've even been asked why I don't write WWII novels. Here's why: I've never felt I can do that era justice.
But Sarah Sundin can.
She is one of my all time, top of the list, favorite authors (and people). And her recent release of In Perfect Time doesn't disappoint. The woman's book is a time machine back to a day so glorified by those of us who didn't experience it, filled with heroism, and yet painful, aching, terrifying memories to the ones who survived that period of time.
And Sarah Sundin captures it all.
Romance between an Army Air Force flight nurse who flirts like a veritable pin up girl and leaves broken hearts in her wake, and a C-47 pilot who isn't conscious of her existence or her charms.
Caught behind enemy lines. A desperate escape. The certainty of loss, injury, death and war. But through it all, the glimmer of faith, the whisper of hope, and the promise of love.
I love Sarah's heroes. Strong and capable, with authentic male emotions (or lack thereof ;) ). I'm also thoroughly convinced that Sarah is a genius when writing her heroines, because no two are strikingly similar. They all stand alone and aren't copies of the author herself, or of other heroines previously written by the author.
Yes yes yes yes yes yes. In Perfect Time is another no-brainer. Buy it. Read it. Share it.
