In Perfect Time

Book 3 in the Wings of the Nightingale Series

Publication Date: 2014

Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.

Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer to where they don’t want to go.

Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?

“Sundin excels at well-researched historical detail…with such accurate depictions of culture and setting that we are fully immersed in the times as well as in the story. The strength of relationships forged in war and the apprehension of God in times of trouble infuse this well-crafted novel with substance and light.”

4 stars. “This latest entry in the Wings of the Nightingales is packed with adventure. Set against the backdrop of World War II, Sundin’s In Perfect Time features excellent, well-handled descriptions of battle-torn Italy and southern France; they add just the right splash of research and color without taking over the story. Kay and Roger are sympathetic, strong-willed characters who believe in their cause– and readers will, too.”
