The Sky Above Us by Sarah Sundin

Wars weren’t won with caution, and aces weren’t made in straight and level flight.


These Paxton brothers are stealing their way into my heart! Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Texans and great respect for our servicemen and women so it only took a little nudge.

Adler’s reckless abandon and deep regrets are evidence of his good character and tender heart. The love he has for his parents, brothers, and even music make him an irresistibly lovable hero. Violet’s perceptions and motivations challenged me to examine my own heart. Behind-the-scenes perspectives of the American Red Cross involvement in the story was especially fascinating.

This series has a wonderful balance of love and war, faith and strife, and Americans and Brits. The stories of Sunrise at Normandy would be a perfect date night movie for my husband and me! I definitely recommend this series and I’m eagerly anticipating the final installment.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Sherrinda Ketchersid’s debut novel “Lord of Her Heart”. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 11 of the same book.
    “Tension filled the air as servants jostled each other in a frantic pace to prepare meals for those at the tournament.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  2. One minute Olivia DeWitt was happily steering her car up the hill towards home, the next minute she was headed for the ditch.

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today I shared the first line from Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner but it’s also the book I’m about to dig into so I don’t have an extra line at the moment to share. Have a great weekend!


  4. Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens — https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/09/first-line-friday-86/. It’s such a good book … I highly recommend it. Currently, I’m reading Shine the Light by April McGowan. I’m on chapter seven, so I’ll share the first line from there:

    “Shannon didn’t feel comfortable having Justin stay with her.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! ?❤?


  5. I’m in the same situation – about a dozen books behind in reviews, but getting plenty of reading time in. The quote I’m sharing on my blog today is from the novella collection An Amish Reunion. This is the first line from page 81 of my current read, Who I Am With You by Robin Lee Hatcher:

    “Ignorance, Ridley discovered, isn’t bliss.”

    Have a great weekend!


  6. “Julia Ericksson hastily donned her fur lined cloak and made her way to the viewing deck of the SS Victoria”
    From Brides of Alaska by Tracie Peterson.


  7. Good morning Beth!
    I have The Sea Above Us sitting by my reading chair waiting for me to get to.

    My first line is from Beyond the Shadows #1 The Shadows Series by Loree Lough

    Thick, dark hair swirled around her shoulders as she turned toward the sound of his closing car door.

    blessings, Tina
