A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin {book tour and review}


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.

My Thoughts…

Having recently read the first book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, I was over all thrilled with the opportunity to read the second “A Memory Between Us”.  This book goes great with the first but in my opinion I believe it stands well enough on it’s own. What that being said,  if gifted, you wouldn’t have to go back to read the first book  to figure out who is who or what’s going on.

I always have the hardest time writing reviews for books I really fall in love with and this one it definitely one of “THOSE” books.  The attention to detail and the rich history written in this book will totally transport you from this time to an era once gone on before us.

The characters are real and they have real problems and struggles just like we all do. I appreciate that Sarah Sundin breathed such life into them. Oh how deeply I felt for both Jack and Ruth and at times my breath was totally taken away as their story unfolded.

I love how God was brought into this story. The book isn’t preachy which I highly value in a christian novel. God’s loving mercy, grace, forgiveness, and healing power is constantly displayed throughout A Memory Between Us. And  I appreciate the addition of actual scripture throughout this story.

I didn’t want this book to end. I wanted to read more about Jack and Ruth as well as their friends Charlie and May. This book would make a wonderful movie and if it ever becomes one, I’ll be the first to see it! I am really looking forward to the next addition to the Wings of Glory series! Thank you Susan for such an enjoyable read.
