Sundin skillfully uses an alternating first- person point of view between Mellie and Tom, and pulls readers into their lives. The themes of anonymity and growing love linking the two makes this story a romantic read.

Mellie Blake is a shy lieutenant serving as a nurse in the U.S Medical Squadron. She unenthusiastically agrees to take part in an anonymous letter-writing program to Tom MacGilliver, an officer in the Aviation Battalion overseas. As they write to one another, under cover of anonymity, a true friendship develops into stronger feelings of love. They face a choice: reveal their identities to one another or continue to let pain from their past dictate their future. (REVELL, Sep., 464 pp., $14.99)
