A Great Series Conclusion Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin ~ Review

What I love about Sarah Sundin’s stories is her ability to weave a historical setting as rife with conflict as World War II with a love story that moves my heart and soul with its vibrancy.

There is a delicate balance between too much history and ignoring the love story. Or an overwhelming love story angle with the war as only a distant background. There is a near perfect balance in “Blue Skies Tomorrow”.

The character development in this story is amazing. Sundin took her characters to places I don’t often see in fiction and I loved it. She delved deep into the makeup of both Helen and Ray, found what made them tick and used it against them. Masterful. It’s the only word I can use to describe it.

As the story moved overseas, I thought a bit of the momentum was lost in a few too many historical details, but not much and I didn’t lose interest. Turns were made and devastation brought on the characters.

I know I’m reading a good book when I become very emotional and this book had me up in arms in the defense of Helen against her in-laws. Sundin took me from the height of anger to the beauty of a new love.

It’s a great conclusion to the end of the series and I look forward to more from this very promising author!

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

  1. Sarah Sundin is one of my favorite authors, a definite must-read. I savored all three of the books in her Wings of Glory series. I'm not a real fan of WWII romances, but I'll read anything Sarah writes. Yes, she's that good.

    I'm thrilled that I live close enough to attend her launch party for Blue Skies Tomorrow and am looking forward to seeing her again.

  2. Great review, Casey! I'm a little behind on my reading, but I'm finishing this one up this week. Of course, I'm loving it!

    Have a great day! : )

  3. KELI, I agree with you. I do think my favorite of all three though was the second, but you are right, they are fantastic! And oh I'm jealous, that launch party would have been fun. :D

    MICHELLE, it is a great book! So glad you could jump on the reviewing 'wagon' for this one. :)
