Need to Read #36: On Distant Shores
Title: On Distant Shores
Author: Sarah Sundin
Book blurb: Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A comfortable boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets decidedly 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?
Quick endorsement: World War II is a fascinating time period, and reading about Georgie’s adventures as a nurse is so interesting! I love the historical accuracy that fills Sarah’s books, only adding to their draw. Historical fiction lovers! This one is for you.
