What is there not to like about this book? This book is so richly detailed and intriguing. I loved reading about the obstacles the characters conquer while serving our country in World War 2.
Chet and Carol were very careful about allowing anyone to get too close. Carol saw what happened to her friend who married way to quickly. She felt it was best not to have any ties to hold her down. She was not going to do anything rash and have regrets for the rest of her life. Then she met Chet.
She was intrigued but was closely guarding her heart. She thought if she was stationed in France she would be safe.
Chet and Carol each had a job to do but often would think of each other and pray that they were safe.
This was a wonderful romantic story but was very detailed. I felt like I was in the cockpit with Chet. It is amazing to think that the pilots continued to get in the plane over and over again. They had a duty to serve and they served it well.
I loved the last chapter. It was a pleasure to read. Highly recommend. This is a story that leaves you feeling patriotic and proud to be an American. I will be looking for more books by Ms. Wangard to read in the future.
