    I requested this knowing full well it's Amish/religion themed, but the woman pilot during Pearl Harbor was irresistible to me and I wanted to give it a go. I'm glad I did. There was much to like about this novel, though there were some bits that grew tiresome. Loved: --The heroin...

    I always enjoy historical fiction about Pearl Harbor and this book was interesting to read. I liked it at first and then the main characters began to get way too "sticky sweet" and sappy for my preferences. It was no longer believable at that point, and ruined the romance part of this ...

    I love reading Amish books - this one was different in that the main characters left the Amish community to go to Hawaii and train men and women to fly. Those that had been baptized members were shunned for leaving. Jude and Lyndaya knew when they left they would never be able to retur...
