On Distant Shore Review

DSC 5958blog

On Distant Shores is a sweet love story set during World War 2.  John Hutchinson (Hutch) is a pharmacist in the U.S. Army, but he is frustrated with the lack of respect his profession gets and is working hard with his father to establish a Pharmacy Corps - then he'll finally get to be an officer.  

Georgie is a flight nurse, but she struggles with fear in the middle of the dangerous situations she must deal with and her family wants her to leave the Army.  The two connect in Italy, but when plans start to fall apart it affects their budding relationship.  Both have to learn to rely on the Lord to lead them.

I loved this book!  I had never read anything by Sarah Sundin before, but I like her writing style.  Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres, but I'm especially impressed when an author takes care to be really historically accurate while creatively tying in real-life people and situations with fictional characters.  Sundin did it flawlessly.  I also had no idea that pharmacists and their profession were disregarded so much in the Army before World War 2, so I feel like I learned something through this book.  

The storyline was sweet, the characters showed growth, and the ending was satisfying.  I give it five stars, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Sundin's novels.

Note: I received this book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
