With Every Letter – The Book Cover Is Here!

With Every Letter by Sarah SundinI’m so excited to reveal the official book cover for With Every Letter, the first book in the Wings of the Nightingale series, coming in September 2012! Once again the cover team at Revell managed to capture the feel of the story! The book is now featured on my publisher’s website at Revell Books, and is available for pre-order on, 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 With Every Letter:

Lt. Mellie Blake is a nurse serving in the 802nd Medical Squadron, Air Evacuation, Transport. As part of a morale building program, she reluctantly enters into an anonymous correspondence with Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer in the 908th Engineer Aviation Battalion in North Africa. As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face to face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage to their past? And can they learn to trust God and embrace the gift of love he offers them? Combining excellent research and attention to detail with a flair for romance, Sarah Sundin brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing, and true love.

So what do you think of the cover? Bridges play an important role in the story, and the cover features an actual bridge at Termini Imerese on Sicily, where Tom and Mellie are based.
