Helen Carlisle is keeping up appearances of the grieving widow after her hometown hero of a husband is killed in the Pacific fold of World War II. But the stress of keeping up the appearance is starting to crack her perfect facade and she gives more and more time and energy as a volunteer in order to compensate. But the question is, how long will that last before she completely falls apart for reasons the town doesn't expect?
Lt. Raymond Novak has always dreamed of being a preacher but in the times of war, he is training B-17 pilots, which he loves. But he has a deep-set fear that is lurking beneath the surface and causing doubts to constantly swirl. When Helen catches his eye, he is determined to convince her to move on after the death of her husband.
Both Helen and Ray have their secrets. Helen's secret is a threat to herself and an image that is deeply ingrained in her hometown. Ray's secret fear is threatening to overtake him and ruin all that he has dreamed of. Can they show faith through adversity? And can they risk reputations and even their lives to conquer their challenges?
The book is full of character growth and a beautiful romance. I loved it. While this book is the final book of a series, it isn't necessary to read the first two books of the series to understand the plot. I haven't yet, but I fully intend to read the first two books. If you want a good book that you will fly through before summer completely leaves us, read Blue Skies Tomorrow.
While I received a complimentary version of this book, I was not compensated for this review and it is my own thoughts and opinions.
