My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sarah Sundin has once again given us a wonderful WWII novel!
I enjoyed reading this 2nd book in the Wings Of Glory series that takes you back to the early 1940's. The storyline is thick and rich and the characters are raw with real-life emotion. You walk away with not only entertainment, but with new friends!
I greatly appreciate how A Memory Between Us is more than a relaxing read but also a spiritual challenge and encouragement with it's strong message of forgiveness and God's grace. Even if you don't identify with any of the character's exact positions and problems in life you will be encouraged by the message of hope.
While I really did like this book I do need to give a word of caution due to some of the content dealing with the rape of a young woman. I think Sarah handles the scenes well considering all, but in my opinion this is not for a teen to be reading. And depending on your own history and life you may want to take this into consideration before reading it yourself. This story shows God's faithfulness even in our darkest moments and how God can heal even the worst of our wounds.
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 carries a shameful secret that keeps her from giving her heart to any man. Can Jack break down her defenses? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?
