A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin (Review)
Paperback: 439 pages
Publisher: Revell (September 1, 2010)
From the Back Cover:
Can they overcome the past to find a brighter future together?
Major Jack Novak has never failed to meet a challenge--until he meets army nurse Lieutenant Ruth Doherty. When Jack lands in the army hospital after a plane crash, he makes winning Ruth's heart a top-priority mission. But he has his work cut out for him. Not only is Ruth focused on her work in order to support her orphaned siblings back home, she also is determined not to give her heart to any man.
As the danger and tension of World War II rise to a fever pitch, Jack and Ruth will need each other more than ever. Can Jack break down her defenses? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?
From the English countryside to the perilous skies over France, A Memory Between Us takes you on a journey through love, forgiveness, and sacrifice.
I loved this book. It is the second book in the Wings of Glory series following the three Novak brothers. It can stand alone. The setting is WWII mostly in England. Jack and Ruth are Americans. The characters and plot are well developed, interesting, and unique. I also liked the secondary characters and their plot line. The author did a good job with the historical aspect of the book, I felt like I was really there. Jack is a pilot and Ruth is a nurse. When he is injured he meets her at the hospital and falls for her but that is just the beginning. The book takes twists and turns to a satisfying ending. I really enjoyed it. Highly Recommended. :)
