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.

Sarah Sundin is the author of A Distant Melody and A Memory Between Us. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children.

I really enjoyed this series. Blue Skies Tomorrow is well written with characters I liked and ones that drove me nuts. Without giving away a spoiler, let me just say that it is important when reading this book to remember the cultural setting of the time period when women had few choices and little voice in what happened at home. While I am not a raging feminist, I am thankful for the many strides which have been made that give women like Helen more options. This is a great ending to a wonderful trilogy.

Available August 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Linda - thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm glad you enjoyed Ray & Helen's story. And I'm glad you kept the culture of the time in mind :)It wasn't THAT long ago, but it was a very different world.
