Lt. Mellie Blake is a nurse serving in the 802nd Medical Squadron, Air
Evacuation, Transport. As part of a morale building program, she reluctantly
enters into an anonymous correspondence with Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer in
the 908th Engineer Aviation Battalion in North Africa. As their letters
crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not
knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two
are poised to meet face to face for the first time. Will they overcome their
fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage to their
past? And can they learn to trust God and embrace the gift of love he offers
I really enjoyed this book. It picks you up and takes you away to 1942. Mellie is a relatable character, especially for those who have ever come across as socially awkward. Tom is such a sweetheart. You can see his desire to have people like him, even to his detriment. This is Ms. Sundin’s fourth book and I really like how each of her characters are so unique. They each have a struggle that only God can help them with and I love that they turn to God when they see that something is going wrong. There are so many things that I like about this book, but I don’t want to mention them as it may spoil the novel for you. Just trust me that when you read this book, it’ll take you to World War II and introduce you to some people that you can’t help but fall in love with!. Highly Recommended!
