Received my copy as a birthday giveaway from the author. Thanks Sarah!

Am enjoying reading…wonderfully written historical romance which takes place in Italy during WW2. Excellent. Clean as a whistle, wonderful spiritual viewpoint(s), dual point of view (nicely done). Really no criticism. I enjoyed it, and will add Sarah to my list of Christian fiction authors. ( )

I thought "With Every Letter", the first book in this series, was great but I think I enjoyed this one even more. I loved the Italian setting, despite it being a war zone, and there was more action and humour in this book.

I was pleased that Georgie was given her own novel. I just loved her in this book and her sweet, southern charm and bubbly personality made her, not only a very likeable protagonist, but also a popular flight nurse and a force to be reckoned with. I liked how she overcame her fears and weaknesses, allowing her to face life-threatening situations calmly and with decisiveness.

Hutch's attitude, on the other hand, grated on my nerves at times even though I could understand his frustrations. I was fascinated that he was a pharmacist and had to create medical compounds under very trying conditions. I hadn't realised that there was even a Pharmacy Corp in the army during World War II and it was interesting, although disheartening, to see how non-commissioned men were treated and disrespected by officers who thought these men were beneath them.

"On Distant Shores" was touching, heartbreaking and poignant. The author had obviously done her research and the geographical and historical details were well-crafted making this an enthralling and engaging read. Looking forward to reading the last book now. ( )

Sarah Sundin's Wings of The Nightingale is my favorite series of novels of the World War II era. Steeped in history , she nevertheless manages very well to bring color to a time of history that is usually shown in grays and browns. This novel is the second in her series, but is quite able to be a stand alone book. You do meet the same characters as you did in her With every Letter, although this one follows Lt. Georgiana Taylor (better known as Georgie) and Sgt. John Hutchinson (known as Hutch through most of the story), Rose, Mellie and the others are still there.
The battles fought are not only against nations, but in the heart of the people. Sarah has many subplots and issues that are dealt with in a very timely manner, which makes reading this book enjoyable. I hope that this is not the conclusion of this series, as I am looking forward to finding out what happens to the characters. I give 5 stars to this novel, and recommend you read it, even though war might not be your preferred reading.

I received this book free from Chris at LitfusePublicityGroup and Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own. ( )

I would recommend checking out the first book and then reading this one second. There are some books that you don't have to read it order even though I tend to like to read them in order but I feel this series should be read in order because the first book does lay the foundation for things that happen in this book. Anyway lets get on to the review for this book. In this book you are following along with Georgie as she learns to overcome her fears along with learning to make decisions for herself and not letting her family and friends run her life for her. I really loved this book and I can't wait to read what happens next. I loved watching both Georgie and Hutch grow. There were also parts that broke my heart for both of them but in the end it ended just how I thought I should end. If you love romance books and also books where the main characters grow then this is the book for you! ( )

Another great captivating read by Sarah Sundin, she does not disappoint! We are able to look at some of the things that happened in the first book, but from another view point.
With this book we are in Italy, and I felt the bombs hitting the shore. Sarah had me right in the middle of the war in this story. This is Lt. Georgiana Taylor's story, and also Sgt. John Hutchinson. Fraternizing with an officer is not allowed. Never mind that John has more education than most of the other officers, they think the Pharmacy Corp is below them. Huh? Anyway Hutch and his Dad Stateside wage a battle to make Pharmacists Officers. Hard to have a romance when you are not allowed to be together...not even hold hands.
Both Georgie and Hutch are engaged to other people when they meet, and both are aware each is off limits. We also have another engaging character in this book...a child Lucia, a seven year old, orphan, who was injured by an Army truck.
Come along on another great adventure, one with God's hand on each of them. Be ready for a lot of war time action, with a bit of romance thrown in. Catch up with Georgie's friends from the first book, and if you haven't read it, be sure to treat yourself!
I for one cannot wait until the next book it out! Thanks for sharing your gifts Sarah!

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
