ON DISTANT SHORES
The second outstanding Wings of the Nightingale tale is about two people on the front lines of war overseas doing what they can to keep safe their loved ones back home. The characters are well defined within a fast-paced storyline, and the historical details of WWII are vividly described without being over the top.
Flight nurse Georgiana Taylor loves what she’s doing every minute, even though her family and boyfriend want her to resign and come home and live the quiet life. She meets pharmacist John Hutchinson, who makes sure there are ample supplies for the medical team. People don’t often respect him, as he is not in the military and is where he is because of his father’s connections. Georgiana and John cross paths frequently and learn they have much in common. But both are promised to others. Can their private lives survive the war, or will circumstances beyond their control take everything away from both of them? (REVELL, Aug., 448 pp., $14.99)
