On Distant Shores Book Review

 About the Book

 Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A comfortable boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets decidedly 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 fiancĂ©e. 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 pens another exciting tale in her series featuring WWII flight nurses. Fans new and old will find in On Distant Shores the perfect combination of emotion, action, and romance.(Goodreads)

 My Review

On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin is the second Wings of the Nightingale series. I love historical fiction and I find facts from the second World War interesting because it really was not that long ago. Sundin has done some incredible research and knows her stuff! I enjoyed the characters in this book but some of the doctor/nurse stuff made me squirm-I could never be a nurse. In any case the main story line is great, the tension during the war and between the characters is realistic. This book was longer than I thought but it does cover a few years time during the war. It really takes you back to the time period and throws you right into the war, which is difficult to do, this author impresses me.  This was not my favorite book but it was very well written and an enjoyable read.
