With the 70th anniversary of so many important WWII events currently going on there has been a surge of interest, and with it has come a host of novels set in that era. Sarah Sundin's are some of the best! The story pulled me in from the very beginning and wouldn't let me go until the last page.
Sarah Sundin knows her craft well. She managed to make me care about a heroine who is polar opposite of me. I agonized with Kay every time Roger pushed her away. And sometimes I just wanted to give them both a good shake when they needed it! The characters pull the reader into their world, making you think about them even when you have to lay the book aside for awhile, and gosh was that hard to do!
In Perfect Time is a story full of emotion, new faith, forgiveness, and love. There is also plenty of danger and adventure, from the plane being downed over enemy territory to planes racing down a narrow canyon.
One of the things that really stood out to me in this book is that the face that people often show isn't the real person. Smiles and flirting can cover great pain and a multitude of past hurts.
In Perfect Time is an edge-of-your-seat ride through one of the most fascinating times in history that will leave wanting to read more and sorry when you turn that last page. Fans of historical fiction and WWII are in for a BIG treat with this book!
