Book Review: Blue Skies Tomorrow

Blue Skies Tomorrow: A Novel (Wings of Glory)

     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 statesided 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.

I have loved this series and am sad to see it come to an end, this is a stand a lone story with a twist to the plot that made me feel anger down to the tips of my toes, but that was a good thing!  I enjoy the unexpected in a book, otherwise it can tend to lolly gag around, and this book was entertaining the entire way through.  Ray has to endure quite a bit to find his true self and to feel worthy and Helen has to endure a lot of pain before she can free herself of the demons in her past, together they make a strong and lovable couple.
If you have enjoyed the other books in this series I think you'll like this book as well.  If you haven't read any of them yet, what are you waiting for?!!!
