I’m thrilled to reveal the book cover for On Distant Shores, the second book in the Wings of the Nightingale series! As always, the team at Revell did phenomenal work! On Distant Shores will be released August 2013 (not June as I originally announced), and is already available for pre-order at ChristianBook.com, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
The Wings of the Nightingale series follows three World War II flight nurses as they find friendship, love, and peril in the skies and on the shores of the Mediterranean.
Here’s the back cover copy for On Distant Shores:
“Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A comfortable boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets decidedly more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson. Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancée. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they’ve made?
“With her signature attention to detail and her talent for bringing characters together, Sarah Sundin pens another exciting tale in her series featuring WWII flight nurses. Fans new and old will find in On Distant Shores the perfect combination of emotion, action, and romance.”
Vesuvius and Pompeii are important settings in the story, and the photo on the cover was taken by my husband on our vacation to Italy in July 2011!
So what do you think of the cover?
