    4.5 Stars Fans of Sarah Sundin will enjoy this latest WWII historical romance novel! This book is the second in the Sunrise at Normandy series. We're given enough background information that this could be stand-alone, but I would strongly recommend reading the first book first as so...

    I don't think that there is a Sarah Sundin book that I haven't enjoyed. While there are some books I've liked more than others of hers, I've still enjoyed each of her books. This one was no exception. In the first book, we met the Paxton brothers and learned what caused the rift be...

    THE SKY ABOVE US is the second book in Ms. Sundin's Sunrise at Normandy series, but it stands alone. Fans will want to read the first book though (The Sea Below Us) to get Wyatt and Dorothy's story. And I am so looking forward to Clay's story coming later this year. This was al...

    Sarah Sundin is an author who knows her history. I know when I read one of her stories, I'm going to be transported back in time to a certain point in WW2. Her attention to detail is one I haven't really seen in this era. I've read other WW2 historical fictions, but Sarah Sundin stands...

    Loved this second book and now not so patiently waiting for the next in this series. This is a historical book about D-Day and those brave souls who willingly gave their all to secure our freedoms, and we should never forget. We put faces on a few of these individuals thanks to the ...

    No matter what I say in this review, I can't begin to do justice to the magic of Sarah Sundin's storytelling. And this time, I listened to the audio version which enhanced my enjoyment even more. It kinda felt like I had traveled back in time to the 1940s and was huddled next to my rad...

    The Sky Above Us has just as much heart as it does history. I'm always impressed with Sarah's impeccable research and skillful storytelling, and always inspired by the way her characters grow. In this book, Violet and Adler both had intense spiritual journeys that complemented each oth...

    My favorite time period in history to study or read novels based during has always been WWII and especially the time surrounding D-Day, so this was a perfect read for me. It has been really neat to get to know these brothers in this series. I love how Sundin decided to have each br...

    I enjoyed my time spent reading this story about Adler Paxton. The historical details are exceptional as to be expected. The characters are vibrant and multifaceted. The plot was well written and Sundin even tossed in a surprise that I didn't see coming! The only downside is that I hav...

    I have enjoyed all of Sarah Sundin's books, and I've felt for a while that her books get better and better with each new series, but this series is something special; the way that the brothers were separated and how they are coming back together on the battlefield is spectacular. And a...

    I waited a year for this book... and it was so good! I love how this book is all about the middle brother, Adler, and his perspective on the past. I like how this book had a similar timeline, yet built on the first book. I also really like how the themes of salvation, repentance, and f...

    What I Loved: I?ve been invested in the Paxton family since page one of book one. The Sky Above Us was just as remarkable as The Sea Before Us, and I?m eagerly waiting for book 3 of the series. The Sky Above Us was everything I?ve come to expect from Sundin: a sound message for ...

    At this point, I must not care about my health at all, for I stayed up until 3+ AM to finish this book. And I am only mildly ashamed. I did love this book! It probably gets 4.5/5 from me. Still a favorite, but not as favorite-ish as the author's other novels. Reasoning for this? ...

    First off? can I say how pretty this cover is?! It immediately drew me in when I saw it for the first time (and I inwardly swooned) and it made me want to devour the book immediately. So prettyyyy. I have to say, that?s not how I imagine the main character at all though. Anyway, I...
