On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin--GIVEAWAY

About On Distant Shores: 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:

This was an awesome book.  Sarah Sundin writes so well, that I felt I was right there with the characters, experiencing what they were going through.  This book had a sweet love story, and the historic aspect was also very good and very informative.  World War II is an era of history that I find fascinating, but I really don't know a whole lot about it.  I feel that even though this was a work of fiction, I learned a lot.  The dramatic events in this book left me on the edge of my seat.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the era of World War II or to anyone who loves a good, clean, action-packed, sweet romance.  Great job Sarah, I loved it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
