Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, 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 to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?
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 is book three in the Wings of the Nightingale series set during WWII. The characters are the same so I recommend reading the books in order. It is a great series and I loved all the books. They are Christian historical romance books. The author does a great job with descriptions and making you feel like you are there. This book centers more on Kay Jobson and Roger Cooper. Kay is a good time gal who leads all the unmarried on without going all the way. She has a past that she does not like telling people about. Her father was a tent preacher who treated her bad and told her lies. Roger has a big farm family but because of the wild way he lived his life until the military they do not think he will amount to much. Roger and Kay know each other through mutual friends and the fact he is a pilot and she is a flight nurse. They have sparks but both are cautious. Roger has decided to stay away from women especially Kay since he's attracted to her. Kay does not understand because all she knows is flirting. Most of the book happens overseas in Italy and France during WWII. The war as a setting works good while highlighting unsung heroes. The conclusion is satisfying and ties up the series as well as this book. I really liked the whole series and recommend them.
