Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit, but at least his stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life. As he courts Helen Carlisle, a young war widow and mother who conceals her pain under a frenzy of volunteer work, the sparks of their romance set a fire that flings them both into peril. After Ray leaves to fly a combat mission at the peak of the air war over Europe, Helen takes a job in a dangerous munitions yard and confronts an even graver menace in her own home. Will they find the courage to face their challenges? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

Scraps of Life Book Club Review
About a year ago I posted a review on A Memory Between Us by author Sarah Sundin with her Wings of Glory Series. I loved the book so click the above link to read my review. I was eager to get the next book in the series, Blue Skies Tomorrow, which I did and LOVED it! As I believe I mentioned in the first review, I didn't read the first book in the series but was able to follow along with the story. This is written as a series but each book is strong enough to stand on its own. I LOVE it when an author does this. I'm also a sucker for a series so that is why I've enjoyed this one.
I am a huge fan of historical fiction. I'm also a huge fan of books of the heart and again, this book has both. Broken hearts and healing never gets old as a story line. It seems to be a particular them I enjoy reading. The book is suspenseful. Once I started reading about Helen I could not stop. I also love reading about human life struggles and making choices. Sometimes the choice that is the most difficult becomes the best choice. I'm not about blogging spoilers so you will have to get the book and read for yourself.
