With Every Letter


By Sarah Sundin

Book 1 in the Wings of the Nightingale series
Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met-even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence-he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years.
As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing-and true love.


You’re going to need some tissues with this book.

Two people learning to live through anonymity. Their friendship grows, but not their courage.

She’s afraid he won’t like her looks. He’s afraid she won’t be able to get past his family history.

Their affection is growing from friendship into love. Unfortunately their courage isn’t increasing.

It appears that this relationship is doomed to remain anonymous. After nearly a year Tom finally gives Mellie an ultimatum. Either meet and reveal her identity or the relationship would end. Is Mellie really brave enough to expose her looks?

Thank you, Ms Sundin. I’ve read all your books and am looking forward to your next. I love the historical WWII details.
