The Sky Above Us

This is a great Christian historical romance novel about WWII.
Book 2 in the series “Sunrise at Normandy, it is also the continuation of the Paxton brothers’ stories.

In this book, we get to know Adler…you might say he is a haunted man. Haunted by the past. When that terrible night happened, the one when his actions led to the death of his fiancee, he is ordered to leave home. He hasn’t been in contact with his parents or his brothers and is convinced that they never want to see him again.

Violet signs up to be a Red Cross volunteer and finds herself serving men in the US air force. Believing God has called her to be a missionary, this is not what she wanted to be doing, and tries to make the best of her circumstances.

They are immediately drawn to each other, but there are too many obstacles in the way…or so they believe.
As they learn to trust God, (I really enjoyed seeing the spiritual journeys of both of these characters, they are well written) and look to Him to see what is the next step He wants them to take, they discover that nothing is impossible with Him.

This book really brought to life that era, and especially the setting.
Experiencing what it might have been like, right there on those front lines, or shooting down those Nazi fighter planes…it brought history to life for me, in a new way.
