On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin

About the Book

Caught between the war raging around them and the battles within, two souls long for peace—and a love that remains true.

Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson.

Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they’ve made?

With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin weaves an exciting tale of emotion, action, and romance that will leave you wanting more.

My Review:

5 Stars

On Distant Shores may be book 2 in Sarah Sundin's Wings of Nightingales series but can read as a stand alone.  Georgiana is introduced in book 1, With Every Letter, and this book is her story. She is a fun character that many would be able to relate to. 

I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last. I really enjoyed Georgiana's story and loved the interaction she had with Hutch. They are made for each other but many obstacles stand in there past, including they both have significant others back home. I enjoyed seeing them grow and react to the effects of the war and all that was going on. I really felt there story come to life. I enjoyed learning about pharmacy in the military, how lacking it was and how untrained people where in the department.

This is a great book that anyone that enjoys a romance set in WWII would enjoy. I know I did and can not wait to read the third book in the series next year.
