Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.
Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?
Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.
In Perfect Time is the third book in this stand alone series, The Wings of The Nightingale, by Sarah Sundin. In this book, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson loves to have a good time and date. She finds a man in every airfield across Europe where she flies. Kay has not met any man that could resist her charms except for Pilot Roger Cooper, he tries to avoid her all together. Kay and Roger find themselves brought together by Roger sharing his faith, which Kay walked away from years ago as her father was a minister. As Kay listens to Roger and finds out that what her father had told her all those years ago was not the whole truth, Kay finds herself transforming because of God's Grace. As Kay changes, Roger sees Kay in a whole different light but neither one of them believes they are worthy because of things in their past.
In Perfect Time is the first book in this series I have read and I am glad I did. As a fan of Christian Historical Fiction I was drawn to this book. Sarah Sundin writes with authority on Army Air Force Nurses, and Pilots during WWII, about Europe and America during this time, and the lives of the residents and soldiers of this time.Although this is a fiction book, much of it is historically accurate. I learned so much about medical professionals and pilots during this time and it is fascinating. As I read I felt like I was there watching the events unfold. I really enjoyed the characters in this book, especially Nurse Lt. Kay Jobson because of her journey to finding her faith again and opening her heart to first Jesus and then Roger. Her journey is something real that a lot of people go through. I had a hard time putting this book down, once I started reading I was drawn in until the end. It is the third book in this series but each of the books is catagorized as stand alone books, and they truly are. As I read I didn't feel like I was missing anything or behind on details. I do want to read the other two books to get the stories of some of the other characters in this book. I really did enjoy this book and I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction, especially WWII books. I cannot wait to read more book by Sarah Sundin. I give this book 4 STARS.
Don't miss Sarah Sundin's hot-off-the-press novel, In Perfect Time. Publishers Weekly gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up: “Sundin excels at well-researched historical detail . . . with such accurate depictions of culture and setting that we are fully immersed in the times as well as in the story. The strength of relationships forged in war and the apprehension of God in times of trouble infuse this well-crafted novel with substance and light.”
