In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin


In Perfect Time
In Perfect Time | Wings of the Nightingale series
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?


My Review of the book

I truly enjoyed With Every Letter and On Distant Shores, Sarah Sundin's earlier books about a group of transport nurses operating in the Italian theater.  Packed with the action of army hospitals, airfields, and those temporary tents that became everyone's homes, these books also offer believable stories of faith growing amidt danger.  Now Sundin has completed the series with Lt. Kay Jobson's story in the new book In Perfect Time. For years Kay had hidden behind a "play girl" game of flirtation.  Juggling multiple boyfriends at once, Kay actually kept everyone at bay, ending all relationships before they really started.  She never wanted anyone to get too close.  While she had bonded with nurses Mellie and Georgie, despite their strong Christian faith, she wanted nothing to do with the outspoken Christian pilot Lt. Roger Cooper.  She had enough of the "holier than thou" attitude from her judgmental family while growing up.  A simple Bible verse was enough to make all her father's condemnations echo over and over again in her memory.

Little does Kay know that Roger hears similar past voices, his recent acceptance of his Savior only beginning to block out all the damage done by the years of put downs. The need to do their dangerous jobs competently compels both to shield their hurts and vulnerabilities, resulting in a very bumpy start to their friendship.  Neither can see any possibilities of it developing anything beyond a civil acceptance of the other.  In Perfect Time can easily be read as a stand alone book, but readers will get a better understanding of the transport nurses and their role in WWII if all three books are read. Only by reading all three books are you able to connect the story of friendship that is an underlying theme throughout the series.  Of the three books, I think In Perfect Time does the best job of blending a story of faith with a story of romance in an authentic wartime setting.  Sarah Sundin has done her research and it shines through in the smallest of details.  I received a copy of this book for review purposes from LITFUSE.
