Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval - even marry a man she doesn't love. Lt. Walter Novak - fearless in the cockpit but hopeless with women - takes his last furlough home in California before being shipped overseas. Walt and Allie meet at a wedding and their love of music draws them together, prompting them to begin a correspondence that will change their lives.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 February #2
    Plain, reserved, Los Angeles ball-bearing heiress Allie Miller abandons propriety to flirt with Lt. Walter Novak of the Army Air Force during the idyllic week following her best friend's small-town wedding. When Walt is posted overseas, they correspond, drawn together by a shared faith and their mutual, if unspoken, attraction. Walt, however, has a propensity to lie, and Allie is torn between her own call to actively serve God and her filial responsibility to obey her parents' wishes in the matter of her marriage to her father's ambitious but undemonstrative second-in-charge, who is neither a Christian nor (rumor has it) heterosexual. While their pride puts Sundin's protagonists at cross-purposes, Walt serves in the European aerial theater. Sundin's debut Christian historical romance featuring the youngest of the Novak brothers introduces an emotionally gripping, detail-rich but fast-paced trilogy set against the backdrop of WWII at home and abroad. Romance readers and military history buffs will find much of interest here. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
