The second book in the Wings of Glory Series, A Memory Between Us, written by Sarah Sundin follows Major Jack Novak and army nurse Lieutenant Ruth Doherty as they try to supply income for their families and find out what course their lives are going to take in Europe during World War II. Ruth always attempted to keep herself distanced from her patients, but Major Novak is very convincing in persuading Ruth to spend time with him as he recovers from an injury he received while flying a mission. Throughout their time spent together, the reader begins to find out more about the lives of both Ruth and Jack.
The book focuses on the relationship between Ruth and Jack, and the learning process and growth they must go through in order to find out if they are really meant to be together. Ruth must face her past and the difficult mistakes she made while trying to provide for her family. Jack must face his family to determine if his plan to be a minister is really right for him or if it is just being forced upon him by his family. Throughout these difficult struggles, all of the characters must rely upon God and find out what he wishes them to do with their lives.
I really enjoyed this book, as historical fiction is one of my favorite genres to read. I can’t wait to read the other books in the series because I am interested in learning more about the men in the Novak family and their relationships with one another and time they spent fighting in the U.S. Army.
