The Sky Above Us

The Sky Above Us by Sarah Sundin is the second book in a new series by this fantastic author.  Somehow I missed the first book in this series, but this book worked fine as a stand-alone.


Lt. Adler Paxton is a troubled Army pilot in the process of being stationed for D-day.  Along the way, he meets Red Cross nurse/missionary wannabe Violet Lindstrom, and they learn what it means to put others first and serve well.  (That sounds so cheesy LOL but I promise it’s a fantastic book!)

I love Sundin’s books because they seem so well-researched and detailed, and I feel like I’m learning history, being entertained, and learning spiritual lessons all at once.  The characters were relatable, although I was internally screaming at them at a couple of points ;), and there were just some great lessons about forgiveness, redemption, and love taught throughout the story.  Since it’s set in WWII and there are some adult themes, I would recommend this to older teenagers on up.  I will definitely be looking up the first book in this series as well as looking forward to the next one!
