Book Cover: Major Jack Novak has never failed to meet a challenge--until he meets army nurse Lieutenant Ruth Doherty. When Jack lands in the army hospital after a plane crash, he makes winning Ruth's heart a top priority mission. But he has his work cut out for him. Not only is Ruth focused on her work in order to support her orphaned siblings back home, she carries a shameful secret that keeps her from giving her heart to any man.

A Memory Between Us is the second book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.

Review: Major Jack Novak is featured in his book; he is the older brother to Walt, who was the main focus of Sarah’s first book in this series A Distant Melody. I was thankful to have received a review copy of this book. I enjoyed that Sarah had Walt and Annie, which were the main characters from A Distant Melody, make an appearance in this book.

A Memory Between Uscan be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading A Distant Melody to get to know the Novak family up-close and personal. Unlike Sarah’s first book, which was sweet and light hearted, A Memory Between Us shows the reader the darker side of life! Both Major Jack Novak and Lieutenant Ruth Doherty are letting fears from their past control them. These memories are attacking their future! Can they be helped?

Can Jack and Ruth face their fears and trust God in the process? Can these two let God heal their pain or would their pride and the need to be in control keep them running from the thing they fear the most and each other?

Ruth faces some pretty tough situations sexually and I’m glad the author didn’t get any more graphic than she did! Major Jack gets in some pretty intense battles on the war front that paint an honest picture of what they faced when being attacked. It was fascinating to read about women being Air Med’s in the war! I learned a lot about history from this book and you will to!

This is a heavier read than the first book but Sarah definitely captured the time in history. Sarah’s next book will be about the next brother, Ray. Ray is a Pastor!

I look forward to reading another story in this series!
