Every word in Sundin’s writing is purposeful. Most books contain some sections complete with descriptive fluff but not Sundin. Every bit of prose is purposeful. Sundin takes historical facts and carefully interweaves them with delightful romantic fiction. Her characters are well rounded, and Sundin does a superb job of developing character arcs. Her characters face real problems and grow throughout the course of her novels.
On Distant Shores would appeal to all fiction readers but especially those who enjoy historical fiction. This is the second book in the Wings of the Nightingale Series. It is the story of flight nurse Georgie Taylor and pharmacist John Hutchinson, and the romantic tension between them; the story is set against the backdrop of World War II. In this story, Georgie has a few things to learn about herself; John has a few things to learn as well. This book includes characters from the first book in the series, With Every Letter (also a good story if you haven't read it).
