    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...

    Really loved this second installment of the series. It was great to get another brother's perspective, and I'm very much looking forward to Clay's book after the way this one ended! This author is supremely gifted at including accurate historical detail that puts the reader right in t...

    There aren't many books that I greet with as much anticipation and delight as a new one from Sarah Sundin. Her books never disappoint and The Sky Above Us is another stellar WWII romance from one of the masters. The whole concept of this series is so great. To get a look at the eve...

    This series focuses on three brothers before and during World War 2. The first brother, Wyatt, after some family discord, leaves home and enlists in the Navy. Book 1, The Sea Before Us, covers Wyatt's story as a naval officer. Book 2 now turns to Adler, the second brother. He enlists i...

    Book#2, Sunrise at Normandy This historical romance is sweet tale set at a time when ordinary men had to do extraordinary things, and when women first explored non- traditional roles. ?The Sky Above Us? is a heart melting adventure history-filled second to ?The Sea Before ...

    World War Two is one of my favorite historical periods and I love the cheesy films about the fighting forces made in that era and the decade immediately following. Meant to be more patriotic than accurate, they paint a glamorized, clean cut picture of the American soldier and the women...

    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 ...

    Never have I had a more immersive reading experience than within the pages of The Sky Above Us. Author, Sarah Sundin, once again brings WW2 history to life in this action packed story that doesn't slow down until the final page. The authenticity brought to the characters (especiall...

    I love all of Sarah Sundin's novels, but this is one of her best! I couldn't put it down. I even thought about taking a day off of work to keep reading, but I was a good teacher and waited until I got home. :-) Adler and Violet are relatable and very "real" characters who you truly bel...

    Dogfights, deception, and dreams Oh my! I loved this book. Not that I'm surprised. I've already read a couple of other books by this author and loved those as well. Adler was, on the outside, your stereotypical, cocky pilot seeking glory by becoming an ace in the war. He was brim...

    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...

    The Sky Above Us is a well-written and captivating historical novel. The pacing is mixed throughout the book. Sarah Sundin captured the time-period and historical elements very well. I can tell that the author did her research for this series of books. Lt. Adler Paxton loves to fly, an...

    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...

    When you pick up a book by Sarah Sundin, you know you?ll get a story with a quick pace, loaded with facts about WWII, and a sigh-worthy romance between a life-like hero and heroine. The Sky Above Us is another winner from Sarah Sundin. I liked the heroine, Violet. She was a sweet ...

    I loved reading the second war military jargon with the Nissen huts, strafing, Dzus fastener and various fighter planes - Airacobra, Thunderbolt, Lightning, Mustang and Messerschmitt. Cheers to overdrive where it is easier to select a word and search on wikipedia. The story is very...

    4.5 stars I really liked both of the books in this series. The characters are real. They do what we all do - struggle with forgiving themselves, blame themselves for things that may or may not be their fault, block themselves off from love that they feel they don't deserve, think th...

    Sarah Sundin is such a wonderful author and I always highly recommend her books for the historical romance buffs because there?s so much detail and heart in each one she writes. The 3 stars here is only because I personally didn?t care for this book?s characters, and I felt the s...

    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? ...

    Sarah Sundin has penned a second riveting World War II tale in the Sunrise at Normandy series. I consider her a historian as well as a novelist, and the technical details of the novel are very precise. Enjoying history, I have read a number of books regarding the war, along with hearin...

    The Sky Above Us is part of a series that I have not read. I recommend reading the series in order. The story was good but not memorable. I've read a lot of historical fiction with the same premise. It's okay for historical fiction fans. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for a...

    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...
