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.
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.
In September 2012, we welcomed Sarah Sundin in her first Coming Soon from the Pen post. (http://creativemadnessmama.com/blog/2012/09/01/sarah-sundin/) Yet, today I’m over the top delighted to welcome her back again to ChristianHistoricalFiction.com and Creative Madness Mama in a sequel interview!
As part of a World War II morale-building program, flight nurse Lt. Mellie Blake begins an anonymous correspondence with Lt. Tom MacGilliver in North Africa. As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, they develop a deep friendship. But when they’re both transferred to Algeria, will their future be held hostage by the past—or will they reveal their identities?
What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres? I started writing historical fiction because of a story idea (A Distant Melody) that simply didn’t work in a contemporary setting. The World War II era appealed to me because this was a time when ordinary men had to do extraordinary things, and when women first explored non-traditional roles—while remaining ladies. I don’t write other genres right now, but that could change if the Lord yanks me in another direction. He does that sometimes. Are there any other Christian Historical Fiction authors that you think your readers would enjoy? So many! If they specifically are looking for World War II stories, I point them to books by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Dan Walsh. For other historical fiction, I love Liz Curtis Higgs, Laura Frantz, Lorna Seilstad, Karen Witemeyer, and Melanie Dobson. I know I’m. . .
