All of You: A Carrington Family Novel


 About the Book

Maryland, Present Day

Jacqueline Rogers can rebuild anything...except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she's worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.

After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection.

England, 1942

With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears. Or countless people may die.

Sometimes the past reaches forward to bring hope to the future.

My Thoughts
I love books with two story lines, past and present. Some authors can't pull this off but Sarah did a wonderful job combining two stories into one. I really enjoyed the present day characters more so than the past. This is unusual for me but I still enjoyed it! I loved the setting and the overall feel of the book. I admit I think I liked the previous story Finders Keepers a bit more than All of You. But obviously both are good! Sarah Monzon is an author to keep you eye on and I highly recommend any of her books!! 

Four stars!

Thanks to the author for offering me a free copy. All opinions are my own.
