Blue Skies Tomorrow – Release Day Giveaway!

Blue Skies Tomorrow officially releases today! To celebrate, I’m holding a drawing for a copy of my novel and for a gorgeous apron sewn by my friend Marci Seither – the apron is made from vintage fabric with a vintage pattern and has the book cover printed on the pocket! Here’s a picture of the apron Marci made for A Distant Melody – shown with my writing buddy, Julie Elder.

Blue Skies Tomorrow is the third book in the Wings of Glory series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II. Each book stands alone.

Lt. Raymond Novak prefers the pulpit to the cockpit, but at least his stateside job training B-17 pilots allows him the luxury of a personal life. As he courts Helen Carlisle, a young war widow and mother who conceals her pain under a frenzy of volunteer work, the sparks of their romance set a fire that flings them both into peril. After Ray leaves to fly a combat mission at the peak of the air war over Europe, Helen takes a job in a dangerous munitions yard and confronts an even graver menace in her own home. Will they find the courage to face their challenges? And can their young love survive until blue skies return?

Reviews!

The reviews are starting to come in…I’m so thankful they’re good!

RT Book Reviews gave it 4 1/2 Stars (the highest rating) and said, “With strong historical detail and superb characters, this may be the best yet. A great read for those who love romance, WWII-era settings or just satisfying stories.”

Booklist said, “In her third WWII-set Christian romance, Sundin skillfully addresses several difficult issues-domestic abuse, the overtly racist policies of the U.S. military, and the temptations of worldly ambition and vengeance-and invests her protagonists with the resilience of hope born out of faith.”

To enter the drawing, please leave a comment and say whether you’d like to be entered for the book, the apron, or both. PLEASE include your email in the comment in this format – sarah [at] sarahsundin [dot] com. No purchase necessary, void where prohibited by law, side effects may include sudden death, etc.

I’ll conduct the drawing and post the winner on Friday, August 5.
