Publisher's Summary

Numbed by grief and harboring shameful secrets, Lt. Adler Paxton ships to England with the US 357th Fighter Group in 1943. Determined to become an ace pilot, Adler battles the German Luftwaffe in treacherous dogfights in the skies over France as the Allies struggle for control of the air before the D-day invasion.

Violet Lindstrom wanted to be a missionary, but for now she serves in the American Red Cross, where she arranges entertainment for the men of the 357th in the Aeroclub on base and sets up programs for local children. Drawn to the mysterious Adler, she enlists his help with her work and urges him to reconnect with his family after a long estrangement.

Despite himself, Adler finds his defenses crumbling when it comes to Violet. But D-day draws near. And secrets can't stay buried forever.

Best-selling author Sarah Sundin returns listeners to the shores of Normandy, this time in the air, as the second Paxton brother prepares to face the past - and the most fearsome battle of his life.

Fantastic

I just discovered Sarah Sundin’s writing with the very first in this series, “Sunrise at Normandy”, and I love it!
I hope there will be another book to complete the series about the last and youngest brother.
This is historical fiction in the genre of WWII and WWII Home Front that I absolutely cannot get enough of 😊
However, if you are offended by the Christian Faith being an integral part of the characters lives, then perhaps you may not enjoy this book, even though it isn’t the least bit judgmental.
I’m a Catholic Christian and I have read some “Christian” authors who put down the Catholic Faith as opposed to their own “Evangelical Protestant” beliefs. But, Ms. Sundin does not do this and even respects Catholics and other Christian Faiths.
I intend on listening to her other books on Audible and I REALLY HOPE AUDIBLE will consider making all her books available on audio!

OK read

The setting and description of personal lives surrounding D-Day are interesting and a great glimpse into that time in history. But it is way to preachy.
