In Perfect Time - Wings of the Nightingale 3 - by Sarah Sundin
About the book:
Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love
Bold, sophisticated, and coy, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.
Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer. Can they overcome the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?
Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.
This was a very enjoyable, well-written story. I've been looking forward to it ever since the first book in the series, when we were introduced to Kay and Roger and I could sense they had interesting pasts and would have a wonderful story. They both had families that rejected them and made them feel unworthy and I liked how they had to fight against those negative words they'd been told all of their lives. Even though Roger was a Christian, he still struggled to believe God's Word over years of abuse. This book really showed how important it is to trust the Bible and what God says about us rather than listening to the lies. It was wonderful to watch Kay's transformation and Roger's part in it, but I also felt for her as she was rejected and tempted to do things her own way. I did get a little tired of Roger's constantly putting himself down. The war aspects were a fine addition that added to the story, but didn't take over, and definitely added some excitement! I wished for a little more romance, too. I would recommend reading all of the books in this series because the characters in each figure prominently in all of the books. Overall, this was a wonderful story you won't want to miss!
I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
