Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met–even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence–he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years.
As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing–and true love.
I loved everything about this book. When I first started reading it I didn’t think I was going to like it but I ended up falling in love with the book. I spent most of the book wondering hoping that it would all work out in the end and it did. I saw a lot of myself in the main character so I could relate and I think that it made the book for me. The author doesn’t get bogged down in the details and puts just enough details to keep you interested but not so may that you get lost. This is such a sweet love story. I know that everyone would love to read it.
