Our Review

THE SKY ABOVE US by Sarah Sundin is a quite informative story about the men and women involved with both the fighting and support of our troops serving in WWII. The setting is American troops assembling in England for air support of our troops on D-Day and the invasion of Normandy. The story begins with the set up of key characters (Adler and Violet) traveling on a troop ship to England for their assignments. As the tale continues, the reader is given insight as to how the servicemen trained for their assignments in the war effort and what the role of women of the USO performed. Being a faith based story, there are many events which cause personnel questioning their relationships and with decisions they made. The author is quite descriptive writing about the Normandy invasion both by sea and the air support by the airmen. There’s even a little intrigue when supplies start disappearing from the USO lounge at the airfield. There is also a sub-story about Adler’s family situation that deals with guilt, misconceptions, following your heart and dealing with the truth. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Great job Sarah!
