Book Info
About On Distant Shores: Caught between the war raging around them and the battles within, two souls long for peace---and a love that remains true.

Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie's cozy life gets more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson.

Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they've made?

With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin weaves an exciting tale of emotion, action, and romance that will leave you wanting more.

My Review -
I have enjoyed all of Sarah Sundin's books and I have to say that "On Distant Shores," book 2 in her Wings of the Nightingale series, is her best book yet!  I loved getting to read about the flight nurses once again and especially getting to know Georgie better.  Georgie and Hutch are both such great main characters and Sarah does an excellent job of developing their friendship and feelings for each other throughout the story.  This book is full of historical details and events, but also really delves into the characters' lives and really allows the reader to get to know them.  As Georgie returns back to the States, she discovers some secrets and truths come to light which change the secure lives that Georgie and Hutch both thought they had. A year is a long time to wait to read book 3 in this series, Kay's story, but it will be well worth it!
“Available August 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
