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?

"With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin pens another exciting tale in her series featuring WWII flight nurses. Fans new and old will find in On Distant Shores the perfect combination of emotion, action, and romance.

My take on this book:
If I had to describe this book in one word I would use riveting! It's so exciting to be transported back to the days of WWII and see the role that women played during this time. The richness of detail and the oh so interesting characters make this series a favorite for me. The storyline seems so realistic, Georgiana Taylor has a boyfriend back home but I could easily understand how the situation could allow her to fall for someone else. Anyone who enjoys a story that takes place during war time are in for a treat with this series, but even if you're not a fan of war tales there still is so much to love from the characters, romance, action and even a little girl that will endear herself to the readers heart. A page turner for certain that made this reader feel like I  was transported right into the midst of  action. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
