With Every Lettter


Book 1 in the Wings of the Nightingale series
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.

My review:

I haven't read a book by Sarah Sundin that I haven't liked. This story started out a bit slow, but I hung in there and was hooked about five chapters into the story. I loved the mystery of the letters and how they were able to be open with each other without fear, but at the same time the very thing they feared -- falling in love -- was inevitable. This was a sweet love story. I can easily see it as a movie, and while reading I could hear the author's unique voice in my head. Sundin always goes into depth with her characters and shows you the background behind their behavior. We are all products -- to an extent -- of our childhoods, and we all have our struggles to overcome. Some of us deal with these issues better than others, but we all have them.

The romance in this story was hard to pull off at first, but once my heart became engaged with the characters, I was excited when each new letter arrived as well. I loved how the author showed them overcoming areas of weakness and how God used their trials to make them stronger. I also loved how they each had a strength and a weakness that contrasted with the other person's, and how they were able to encourage each other as a result. The ending was thrilling to say the least. I was as excited as Tom was to discover the identity of his mystery woman.

This was a great love story, but it also had a lot of spiritual depth. I loved it when "Annie" told Tom to just imitate Jesus when he struggled with leadership. When he studied how Jesus dealt with issues I learned something too. What great advice! I think I'll take it and use it in my job as well. :)

With Every Letter was published by Revell and released in Sept. 2012.
