Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love.
The perils of war are compounded by the tension between two people on a foreign base, and not just any two people: pilot Roger who is redeemed but struggling, and Kay, whose troubled childhood has left her with scars she hides behind numerous boyfriends. Neither seems to let anyone very close, until they each get under the other’s skin.
Roger is determined to stay away from Kay because of his disastrous record with women, while Kay is just plain confused by the fact that she can have any man she wants–except Roger. Then one moment of vulnerability, he gives her his Bible, and they start to fall in love.
Roger must confront his past demons, and Kay hers, but a dangerous mission behind enemy lines turns into a fight for survival. All the twists and turns of that part of the book had me on the edge of my seat. But that doesn’t signal the ending; there are misunderstandings to be waded through…
I left on a mission trip and accidentally left this book behind (it didn’t go into the suitcase because I wanted it with me where I could easily get at it again and ended up leaving it on my desk for the week I was gone)–I was glad to get back so I could read the ending.
And it’s a stellar ending. Sweet, nostalgic, but with hope for the future (okay, I won’t give away more than that!).
