If you've read a Sarah Sundin book before you probably know what to expect, but yet she still surprises and brings out amazing truths and fascinating tid-bits of wartime and serving the Lord through difficult choices.
I knew I would be hooked with the storyline as I'm serving the Lord in another country, so it was interesting to see how Violet grasped what the Lord's plan for her throughout the book. I loved that she a ...more
My favorite time period in history to study or read novels based during has always been WWII and especially the time surrounding D-Day, so this was a perfect read for me.
It has been really neat to get to know these brothers in this series.

Loved this second book and now not so patiently waiting for the next in this series.
This is a historical book about D-Day and those brave souls who willingly gave their all to secure our freedoms, and we should never forget.
We put faces on a few of these individuals thanks to the author and we are soon fighting this war in the cockpit of Adler Paxton’s aircraft and we are fighting this War and Spiritual.
Through all the War action the theme of forgiveness rings here, and the hardest of all, to ...more
