In Perfect Time
Sarah Sundin
Revell

Flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, but C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper is immune to her charms. Throughout Italy and southern France, as she evacuates the wounded and he delivers paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them where they don't want to go.

What I love about Sarah Sundin's books is that she really gets me emotionally invested in her characters; that doesn't normally happen for me in a lot of modern/Christian fiction, and so I always end up really surprised by how sucked into her books that I get! She always creates such unique, real characters that I feel like I really know.

I really enjoyed In Perfect Time. The characters were flawed, but so likable at the same time- I didn't think I was going to like the flirtatious Kay, but I was wrong. I grew to understand her and care about her and root for her, too. Of course, sometimes the characters made choices that drove me crazy, but everything always worked itself out. And the faith message was wonderful, too. I can't count the times it had me nodding my head in agreement.

I wouldn't recommend this book to younger readers, though. Both Kay and Roger have "pasts", and Kay, as aforementioned, is a flirt with a string of boyfriends (there's also a scene where a woman is nearly taken advantage of by a man). Still, though it does deal with some not-so-pretty stuff, there's more than enough hope and redemption to make up for it.

Rating: 9

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Hayden - thank you so much for the wonderful review! I'm glad you enjoyed Kay & Roger's story. And yes, I'd recommend it for adults and older teens as well.
