Book Review: A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin
Major Jack Novak has always succeeded in every area of his life, until a mission lands him under the care of Ruth Doherty and it seems he will not succeed in getting to know her better.
Slowly, Jack is able to befriend the Lieutenant, but as World War II comes to a dangerous climax, everything he has built threatens to fall apart around them.
I am not usually one for stories about war - they are usually just too sad for me to handle, but I thought that this book did a great job of presenting the story with the backdrop of a war without it being too graphic and heart-wrenching for me to read. I thought her details were great - in fact, I looked up pictures of the planes she described and that really made her descriptions come to life! I enjoyed the plot too - some turns I didn't expect. A great story of following God's will, forgiveness, and friendship! (I totally did not even mean to aliterate that but it's pretty cool ;-)
A big thanks to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to reveiw!
