The Sky Above Us by Sarah Sundin is the second book in her Sunrise at Normandy series. Adler Paxton fled from his home in Texas three years ago. Running from his mistakes and the guilt, he joins the Army as an airplane pilot. Stationed in England in the days leading up to the invasion of France at Normandy he meets Red Cross volunteer, Violet Lindstrom. Adler and Violet not only must learn to trust in each other but in a loving and forgiving God. I love World War 2 stories but this one went above and beyond. The history was well woven in, the action was believable and the romance was sweet. What else could you want? The underlying theme of repentance and forgiveness was a great reminder that all we have to do is truly be sorry and ask for forgiveness. The healing that comes afterward is so sweet and refreshing. I can’t wait for the next book!

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. ( )

The Sky Above Us, book 2 in Sarah Sundin’s Sunrise at Normandy series, is another winner from this talented author. Filled with great historical detail, gritty life issues relevant to today’s world, and easily relatable characters, this novel set in the months leading up to D Day kept me turning the pages as quickly as I could. I couldn’t wait to see just how the author was going to bring all the threads together — she did it perfectly! Recommended for fans of historical fiction and WWII fiction.

Sundin’s specialty is bringing the WWII-era to life, including the men and women who served at home and overseas. But I have to admit that I thought my eyes would glaze over when the author included descriptions of the planes and maneuvers the Army Air Corps pilots used in their attacks on Nazi Germany. 😉 I was pleasantly surprised at how much I got into that aspect of the story. I held my breath as they executed loops and evasions and then swooped in for the victory. But that’s not all the author incorporates in her story — there is a wonderful balance of the historical and the fictional giving this novel a very authentic feel. Real life heroes and those created by the author rub shoulders on the airbase in England. While I learned a lot about the role of the Air Corps, the inclusion of Red Cross staff charged with bringing a little bit of home to troops overseas was a wonderful bonus. The men and women of that era really were committed! The story of the Paxton brothers introduced in book 1 is continued with Adler Paxton. Sundin’s exploration of Adler’s faith transformation rings true and is never preachy. His story is certainly messy, but the forgiveness of man and God and the restoration of relationships brought beauty out of the sordid and the ugly. While I really liked his love interest, Violet, it was Adler that touched my heart. And sweet romance is a big part of the story, so fans of historical romance will not be disappointed.

While The Sky Above Us focuses on Adler and Violet, it is not a standalone novel; you really need to read the series in order to understand all of the dynamics at work. Both the brothers’ personal histories and the integrated work of the military for the D Day invasion build with each successive book. I cannot wait for the final installment!

Recommended.

As I was reading the middle Paxton brother’s story, I was taken with the research and attention to detail Sarah Sundin pours into her books. She puts readers in the cockpit of World War II airplanes and takes them to the sky with Adler while keeping them grounded with Violet.

Adler is a man haunted by anger, brashness, and regret. A man wrestling with the need for forgiveness while caring his gilt as penance for his past sins. Violet Lindstrom has big plans for her life and serving airmen in England at the Aeroclub is not what she hoped her Red Cross stint would entail.

I loved that Sundin put these two people together in The Sky Above Us. A man who sees himself a sinner, one who believes he has committed unforgiveable sins and a woman who sets her sight so far ahead to her missionary work she is blinded to the mission field at her feet.

Readers are educated on the air force’s role the days leading up to and during D-Day, and Sundin runs this story parallel to Wyatt’s story (The Sea Before Us) in a way that made me want more.

The Sky Above Us is a well-written and captivating historical novel. The pacing is mixed throughout the book. Sarah Sundin captured the time-period and historical elements very well. I can tell that the author did her research for this series of books. Lt. Adler Paxton loves to fly, and his dream is to become an ace pilot. Major Shapiro believes Adler needs to learn to be a team player and assigns him to be the wingman for Capt. Nick Westin. You can feel the struggle Adler is going through with this new assignment. Violet wants to become a missionary, but they only accept married couples. Her former fiancé, Dennis Reeves was influenced by money and decided to take a different path. Violet now finds herself in England working for the Red Cross and managing an aeroclub. Her job is to feed and entertain the off duty pilots. Unfortunately, thefts are thwarting her mission. Violet will lose her job if she does not find the culprit. There is plenty of activity in The Sky Above Us. Adler is flying mission, Violet setting up the aeroclub, both are dealing with their past, activities with local children, uncovering a thief, and much more. I like how Sarah Sundin incorporated the Christian elements into the story. One of my favorite phrases is “only God can take away the pain”. The author provides vivid details that brought the story alive. As a reader, I could visualize the scenes and characters thanks to Sarah Sundin’s writing. It was interesting to learn more about aeroclubs and how the pilots flew their missions. I did find the book slowed down in the middle and I could have done without some of the kissing scenes (they were a bit much). I did, though, like how Violet and Adler’s relationship progressed, and how she never let go of her Christian values. The Sky Above Us can be read alone if you have not picked up The Sea Before Us. There is a preview of the next Sunrise Over Normandy novel included which features Clay Paxton and Leah Jones. Discussion questions are also provided which are a good aid for book clubs. If you are looking for an intriguing historical novel, then look no further than The Sky Above Us. ( )

Cleanliness: Yuck (Content to consider: smoking, drinking, groping, sexual discussions, implied sex, kissing, war, and death.)

This historical romance will make you not want to set it down! The Sky Above Us is the story of pain, mistakes, estranged families, love, war, hate, and forgiveness. Set around D-Day, this book really pulls you into the 1940s and gives you an adventure.

The beginning started so mysteriously and made me want to read more, but the many details about the planes did bore me a little bit. I'm sure it would appeal to other people. The war section was pretty fast-paced and interesting.

The romance was full of "tough love," bad choices, and misunderstandings. Although it was rocky, the main characters' relationship was also cute and pure. True love was valued over flings. There was quite a lot of drama, but it was reasonable for the circumstances.

Religion played a much bigger role in this story than I first thought it would. For example, many of the chapters touched on missionary work. The main religious theme that overwhelmed the book was forgiveness. Both of the main characters were put through many trials. They discovered that although it may not seem like anyone will forgive you, it does not hurt to try. Fess up to your mistakes and try to make things right. Most importantly, don't forget to forgive yourself.
