Mellie enjoys her work as a flight nurse; however she feels like she does not fit in with the other girls just as she has not fit in with anyone throughout her life. Forced to try and fit in with the group, Mellie must write a letter to an officer and guessing no one will respond to her letter, Mellie is shocked when she receives a response and he understands Mellie. Tom has tried to hide from his name and his past and has never allowed himself to be his true self with others. This all changes when he pulls an anonymous letter out of the trash; now Tom can be himself as the woman receiving his letters has no idea of his name. Mellie and Tom share letters back and forth and when Mellie meets Tom face to face she knows it is he whom she has been writing to, but Tom has no idea. With these two work through their pasts and insecurities and allow their correspondence to move past anonymity?
I loved this book! I was drawn right into the story and all of the character's lives. Mellie feels so unsure of herself among others, yet she is such a strong individual and more likable than she realizes. Georgie, Rose and Kay are all great characters as well whom I enjoyed reading about and the friendships that develop between Mellie and these girls. I am hoping that Kay's story is shared in a later book in this series as she is a fascinating character who puts on a front to cover up her own insecurities or her past. The details and life during World War II are fascinating as well and Sundin does a great job at bringing this time period alive.
