On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin

Set during World War II, this romance will keep you reading from start to finish!


Georgie is a country girl from a farm on Virginia, but she followed her best friend into nursing school, and into the military to be a flight nurse. She knows her job, but she has trouble during a crisis, and it causes problems more than once. If only she could do it right! She knows she can, but when she no longer has her friend, will she have the guts to keep going?

Hutch is a pharmacist with the medical group on the battlefield. He knows his job and is very good at it. The army looks down on pharmacists, and thinks any medical personnel can do a simple prescription. But over and over again, they are proven wrong. Pharmacists are needed. But can Hutch and his father help America, and the Army see it before too many are hurt?

As the battle rages, lives are lost. Friends are forever gone. Georgie and Hutch meet each other, and form a great friendship. But both are engaged to loved ones back home. They both have a deep faith, and commitment to God and their loves, so they try to ignore the sparks flying between them. But as time goes on, that will change…

I loved this book and loved the time period. It gave me even more of an appreciation for the military, and for each person who does their job to keep our country safe. And the romance here is timeless! Definitely a winner!

I received the book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
