Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group

Helen Carlisle is a war widow, her husband is considered a home town hero, for his part in the war.
She can't tell anyone her real feelings, so she does volunteer work for the war effort  helping her in laws in the shop they own.When Helen's home burns, her father in law insists she move in with them, that is when she discovers that her late husband's problems were deep rooted in him during childhood.  She doesn't want her son to become another in a line of abusers, too, so  she starts trying to get away, but her in laws threaten to take her child.

She has known Lt. Raymond Novak since childhood, he is the son of her minister, and soon they find they share an attraction, but Helen is afraid of another relationship, and he's been burned before, in romance.  When his position of training B-17 pilots is given to a returning pilot, he is transferred to a different position, and soon, he signs up to fly B-17s in the war effort, where his plane is shot down.

This is a very good book, the last of the series of the Novak boys.  It is hard to think that there won't be another to document their lives after the war.  Sarah Sundin is one of my favorite authors, and again, she has hit a home run, making you feel that you actually know these people.

I received a copy of this book to read and review from Litfuse, no other compensation was given.  All opinions expressed here are my own, I'm not required to give a favorable review.

How do you find time to read? You are amazing and your reviews are wonderful!
I have a friend who used to write them for the paper to get people to go to our library more. Not always an easy thing to do, but you do it well.
Hugs- Tete
PS- Glad you had a great day yesterday!
