BOOK BLURB
In a time of peril, can they find the courage to confront their fears and embrace a love that lasts?

When her husband becomes a casualty of the war in the Pacific, Helen Carlisle throws herself into volunteering for the war effort to conceal her feelings. But keeping up appearances as the grieving widow of a hometown hero is taking its toll. Soon something is going to give.

Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit. His stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life–and a convenient excuse to ignore his deepest fear. When the beautiful Helen catches his eye and captures his heart, he is determined to win her hand.

But when Ray and Helen are called upon to step out in faith and put their reputations and their lives on the line, can they meet the challenges that face them? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

Filled with drama, daring, and all the romance of the WWII era, Blue Skies Tomorrow is the captivating final book in the popular Wings of Glory series.

My Review

Helen Carlisle is now a widow, after her husband was killed in the military. But she wasn’t the grieving widow everyone thought she was. In fact, she was glad her husband was gone, because of his abuse, which no one would ever believe. That is until Ray came upon the scene, and he figured it out, to which Helen denied that anything bad happened between she and Jim. No one could find out about the abuse, because Jim was so nice and sweet around everyone else, not one would believe Helen. She was just a cripple after all, and the way she stumbled around caused all of her accidents, so Jim told everyone.

This is my first book by Sarah Sundin, I haven’t read the other books in this series, but I still enjoyed this one! I like that the author deals with spousal abuse in this book, something that truly needs to be dealt with. And just like in the book, the abuser blames the one he’s abusing. Helen was blessed that Ray found out, but then he left her for a while, not helping. And it was a double blessing when she found a way to leave her in-laws house and the abuse from Jim’s father. I hope anyone reading this book that is dealing with an abusive situation will realize that there is help, and go find it!

I also liked Ray and Helen. Ray was so gracious and kind, wanting to help Helen, even if she didn’t want his help at first. He loved the Lord, which was evident in the way he lived. Helen was so sweet, and she wanted to raise her son the right way, not abusing the women in his life. Her self confidence was trampled on more than once by jerks that call themselves men. But I am glad there was a happy ending, and Helen was able to have a happy life, away from abuse and critical, hateful things said about her handicap condition.

This book was provided by Revell Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
