daischopChattanooga, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Reminds me of Grace Livingston Hill's writingDecember 21, 2018daischopChattanooga, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleI will have to admit, the cover of the book is what drew me into selecting this book to read. That in addition to the cover story, it promised to draw me in. And it did, for the first few chapters.
The woman on the cover seems strong and determined, but the girl in the book is a mismatch of what I hoped to read about. She has a fianc she doesn't want, who she is engaged to marry because that is what her family wishes. Yet, she has this pilot she has met who has captured her interest.
So within the pages we have the story of the two of them flying back and forth. I was hoping more of a focus on Allie, but instead we had it also on Walt. Both characters just seemed too "good". I wanted to like them, but instead I found myself flipping as fast I as I could through the chapters to see how it ended.
It ended okay, although I think I just yearned for more depth in the book and less of a preaching aspect. Which can be done. This read more like a Grace Livingston Hill book.

BodunrinPort HarcourtAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A good BookJune 20, 2018BodunrinPort HarcourtAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I liked that it was a clean read, with strong christian ethics. However it was a bit boring in some places because the relationship was a long distance one. Communication was mostly by letter writing, which gave room for misunderstanding. Yet i liked the way the author twisted the misunderstandings. Not every author can handle old-fashioned courtship with intrigue.
I didn't like that Walt was made out to look like a wimp in some places, but i loved his integrity.
I liked that Allie stood up to her parents eventually and refused to be forced into a forced and arranged marriage with a man she didn't love.

TinaSwitzerlandAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful book!February 7, 2014TinaSwitzerlandAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book totally exceeded my expectations! I could hardly put it down and the story touched my heart. Eventhough it's a fictional story, you get a little insight into life during WWII. I'm looking forward to read the second and third book of the series.
