On Distant Shores

Author: Sarah Sundin
Publisher: Revell
August 2013
ISBN: 978-0800720827
Genre: Historical romance

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?

ON DISTANT SHORES is the second book in Ms. Sundin’s Wings of the Nightingale series. Readers will want to read the first book With Every Letter first, to get the beginnings of this romance.

I have long been a fan of Ms. Sundin’s World War II romances, and this book was no different. I fell in love with Georgie and Hutch and their war-time relationship. I couldn’t help but feel for them as they faced real-life dilemmas and tried to solve them. I inhaled this book in a matter of hours – and can’t wait for the next book in the series, coming in March 2014. $14.99. 432 pages.
