THE SKY ABOVE US is the second
book in award-winning Sarah Sundin's Sunrise at Normandy series featuring Adler, the second of
the three Texas Paxton brothers. Inspired by many family stories of
involvement and life in WWII, Sundin premiers the oldest brother
Wyatt's story in THE SEA BEFORE
US while Army Ranger Clay's will be next in line. Each story is
complete unto itself, however, Sundin has done a masterful job of
interlinking their stories as part of the storyline in THE SKY ABOVE US.
Being a bit of a history buff, I fully appreciated Sundin's talents as a
writer and researcher to bring the 1940s period and all her characters
fully alive. Small details that are so telling, such as Violet learning the
British call cookies biscuits are naturally integrated as part of her
learning experience on the American Air Force base in Leiston in
Suffolk, England. Violet and Adler are both very likable characters with
their own human flaws. One of the most enjoyable parts of the reading
pleasure in this delightful easy to read, hard to put down novel is how
both Violet and Alder with chiding from the other begin to question
their own long-standing and firm beliefs about themselves and then
realize some new surprising conclusions.

are sure to enjoy flying up in the clouds with THE SKY ABOVE US! Coffee drinkers take heart! There
is much to enjoy in this sweet romance as Americans come and fly to
the aid of the Allies in the fight to end WWII! Then, if one brother's
story isn't enough, there is still more to enjoy in this wonderful Sundin
