Special Review! With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin

“With Every Letter” is a pleasure-filled journey set in a historically rich period: WWII. I adore the concept of this novel: two people, exchanging letters fall in love, but have never met, all set against the backdrop of a time rife with turmoil.

            The plot is unique and takes the reader on a series of twists that only make the book more of a discovery to read. With the first in a new series of three, I’m eager to learn what is coming up next.

            I thought the theme of friendship a bit overdone at times. It felt too strongly overt for many of the moments of character growth, however when looked upon as a whole, the journey of the characters is one marked with the learning of accepting and giving forgiveness more than anything else.

            The characters certainly make their share of mistakes, but I found I truly cared for these two people. They are surrounded by a time that demands everything from them. I found their determination inspiring. The romance, is of course, my favorite plot element…and I don’t think disappoints. I loved the moments of “dancing”, in more than just the implied idea. ;-)

            A great start to a new series…I’m looking forward to what’s next.

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


More about the novel...

Book 1 in the Wings of the Nightingale series

Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met–even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence–he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years.

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 by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing–and true love.
