Sequel to: The sky above us.
Summary, etc.: 1943. Private Clay Paxton trains hard with the U.S. Army Rangers at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, determined to do his best in the upcoming Allied invasion of France. With his future stolen by his brothers' betrayal, Clay has only one thing to live for-- fulfilling the recurring dream of his death. Leah Jones works as a librarian at Camp Forrest, longing to rise above her orphanage upbringing and belong to the community, even as she searches for her real family. After Clay saves Leah's life from a brutal attack, he saves her virtue with a marriage of convenience. When he ships out to train in England for D-Day, their letters bind them together over the distance. -- adapted from back cover

    Alone in the world, Leah Jones arrives at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, in June 1943 to work in the Army Training Camp library. She hopes to be able to research her origins and find out the fate of her twin baby sisters. The first person she meets is Private Clay Paxton, who is determined to make it as an Army Ranger. Working late, Leah is raped and would have been murdered if Clay hadn't arrived just in time; he then rescues her from shame with a marriage proposal. Sundin infuses this dramatic historical romance with a strong spiritual component. The parallel and diverging stories of Leah and Clay offer a fascinating look at life during war in the 1940s, while the protagonists, with their strong morals and intrinsic kindness, are appealing and their struggles convincing. This the third book in Sundin's Sunrise at Normandy series and it can stand on its own, but readers will want to discover the stories of Clay's estranged brothers in The Sea before Us (2018) and The Sky above Us (2019).
