On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin

About On Distant Shores: Caught between the war raging around them and the battles within, two souls long for peace---and a love that remains true.

Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie's cozy life gets more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson.

Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they've made?

With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin weaves an exciting tale of emotion, action, and romance that will leave you wanting more.

My Take:   This is the Second book in Sundin's Series Wings of the Nightingale.  Although this is a series the books stand alone so you do not need to read the first to enjoy this book but you will want to read the first book because they are really good.  This story is about two people a man and a woman who have enlisted in the services during World War II and how they handle things with their significant others back home.  I liked the attention to detail that Sarah Sundin took in writing this book and I think if you are a history fan you will like this book.  If you are not a history buff I think you will still like this book because it is so well written and tells a wonderful story.  

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
