The Sky Above Us (Sunrise at Normandy, #2) by Sarah Sundin






umbed 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.

Bestselling author Sarah Sundin returns readers 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.

My Review





Loved this second book and now not so patiently waiting for the next in this series.
This is a historical book about D-Day and those brave souls who willingly gave their all to secure our freedoms, and we should never forget.
We put faces on a few of these individuals thanks to the author and we are soon fighting this war in the cockpit of Adler Paxton’s aircraft and we are fighting this War and Spiritual.
Through all the War action the theme of forgiveness rings here, and the hardest of all, to forgive yourself.
An amazing do not miss read, one that will linger long after the final page is turned.

I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
