Library Journal
World War II flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson is a heartbreaker with a boyfriend in every airfield. But her pilot Lt. Roger Cooper is resistant to her charms. However, as they evacuate the wounded and deliver supplies, the pair gradually find love but not without moments of turbulence in both their relationship and their faith in God. Realistically portrayed protagonists star in a well-crafted romance, and detailed depictions of battles in Italy and France present a colorful backdrop for the author's third historical series entry (following On Distant Shores).

Shivani2 More than 1 year ago
What caught my eye about this book was the description on the back. I love reading books that take place during a war period because they're so much more different and real than other books. This book had that, and combined it with a romance element, and it was a fantastic read. Kay was a likable character. She had flaws and problems within herself and in her home life, and it's something that most people can relate to and empathize with. She wasn't the most perfect girl, but she eventually grew up throughout the book and became a stupendous leader. It really makes you appreciate flight attendants and pilots a lot more. The romance that was happening in this novel was far more than cute. It was on a sentimental level, which made it even more meaningful. The book never seemed cliche or over dramatic. My only small problem I had while reading was that I thought the book was a little to long. I loved all the scenes and things that happened, but I feel like it could've been cut short a little, so then the reader's mind would be captured the entire time. Overall, a solid romance book! I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

This book was such an amazing read. I loved it from start to finish. It not only challenged the characters' relationship but also my own relationship with God. Sundin creates a heartwrenching story that reminds the reader of God's plan for each person. I highly suggest reading this series.

My absolute favorite of the Wings of the Nightingale series! The romantic tension, the war time dangers, and engaging characters kept me turning the pages until I arrived at the fulfilling ending. The depths of Kay's character was hinted at in book 1 and book 2, so I was thrilled to find that she was the heroine of book 3 of the series. I'd have to say she's my favorite Nightingale with her strength, sass, and smarts - her struggles with her Christ-given identity and the lies she believed before her redemption are very believable; I found myself was cheering her on from the beginning. Sometimes I wanted to knock Roger upside the head, but that goes for any man really. This a great ending to a fabulous series!
AnneMarieG1 More than 1 year ago
I absolutely loved this book! The writing is pitch-perfect, the characters are well-developed and the story line is intriguing, interesting, and really held my attention. This is the first book I've read by this author and I had to wonder why I haven't found her sooner! Although this book is part of a series, it stands up on its own.; so if you haven't read the other books in the series (like me) you won't need the other books as background, so feel free to dive right in. I definitely recommend this book, and I can't wait to read the other books in the series.

Kay Jobson seems to have the perfect life; beautiful, stunning, multiple temporary relationships; however inside, with a past full of nothing but lies, she is broken and falling apart. Meet Lt. Roger Cooper – he seems to be the perfect Christian guy; however that couldn’t be more wrong, as he has been beat down from everything he’s ever dreamed of. Both have hurtful pasts, but together, through the Gospel, the begin to heal. And unlike many Christian fiction novels, Kay and Roger’s lives don’t get easier – they get harder. In the Winter of 1944/1945, the two go on a mission in France and Italy that tests their relationship with God – and with each other. I am more of a WWII-buff than a romance buff; but Sarah Sundin manages to find a really nice balance between WWII/romance/Christian without either of them being too overwhelming. I don’t want to give too much of the on-your-feet plot setting away; but there is quite a bit of WWII involved – specifically in the middle, as Roger and Kay – separated but on the same mission – are running from the Nazis with Italian partisans. I felt like I was with Roger – in hiding, barely breathing; or with Kay, running to safety in the opposite direction to successfully carry out their mission. I felt the characters were very human; not too courageous, but not cowardly This is the third in a trilogy about WWII flight nurses, with Kay’s best friends being the featured protagonists of the other novels. The stories lap together neatly; without being too cluttered, or too awkward. And, this book works fine as a stand-alone – I never felt lost or trying to figure out who-is-who. Discussion questions are in the back, and provoke interesting thought. Sarah Sundin’s World War II novels have taken the Christian fiction world by storm. You can find out more about Sarah and each of her books on her website. You can also follow her on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest - where you can find more about her inspiration for this novel, and her other WWII novels. Overall, a very wonderfully balanced book with something for everyone. I would definitely recommend it, and I can’t wait to read the other two novels in the trilogy! Thank you Sarah, for bringing classic WWII history back to life with a modern and Christian twist! Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my review.

Having read With Every Letter and On Distant Shores, I eagerly anticipated Sarah Sundin’s third book in the Wings of the Nightingale series, In Perfect Time. As usual, Sundin’s exquisite attention to World War II detail alone rivets a history lover, and her plot made the book impossible to put down. But her characters in this story were exceptional. Lt. Kay Jobson, the nurse of every military man’s dreams, battles her attraction to C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper, who refuses to give up his life goals for a pretty face and gorgeous figure. Surrounded by combat, the two conduct their own private war against the best thing that ever happened to either. Given a choice, I would not have read In Perfect Time during an eternal flight delay, stuck in an angry wasp nest of an airport with nonstop announcements echoing off its soulless walls. But even if you find yourself reading the book in your favorite nook, you won’t notice the difference. Because you will be caught up in the story, as I was.

In Perfect Time was probably my favorite of the series. In this installment, Kay and Roger are the main characters. I have to admit that I have not been crazy about Kay in the first two books. But I have enjoyed her in this book. I love catching up with the past main characters, as well. I highly recommend this book, series, and author. Five stars
Jocelyn_Green More than 1 year ago
Best in this series! When you read a Sarah Sundin book, you can count on the history being accurate, the characters well-developed, and the story compelling. I've never been disappointed by a single book she's written, but I think In Perfect Time has a slight edge over the others in this series. All three are definitely worth the read, but this one is my favorite. Sarah Sundin is the queen of World War 2 fiction. ~Jocelyn Green, author of Yankee in Atlanta

Every time I open one of Sarah Sundin’s World War II romances, I know I’m in for a treat. In Perfect Time is the third in a series, but Sundin is an expert at making each story stand alone. It astonished me how she overlapped the stories slightly, so you can actually recognize scenes from previous books and realize you’re now viewing them through another person’s eyes and experiences. Sarah Sundin is a master of research, weaving historical facts and technical detail into the stories in a way that lifts the characters and plots rather than bogging them down. I don’t want to give away too much of the storyline of In Perfect Time, but I appreciated how she worked the hair-raising adventure of a group of real life flight nurses into this book. And there is a sweet, sweet moment at the end that actually made me choke up. I’m NOT the kind of person who typically cries at books and movies, so this was quite a feat. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Characters with backgrounds that bred insecurity, airplane adventures that make you hold your breath, combined with the vicissitudes of World War 11 create a story to keep a reader turning pages late into the night. Get a hold of a copy of In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin to enjoy romance that flounders between tenderness and misunderstanding in a critical time in our nation’s history brought alive on the pages.

In Perfect Time is the third and final book in the Wings of the Nightingale series. What an incredible read it is! This series follows a group of female flight nurses in World War II. I love how each book builds on the last. (You don't have to read them in order, but I would definitely recommend that you do!) By the time I got to the end of this book, I felt like the characters were friends, and I was so sad to turn the last page. There are three things that really have hooked me on Sarah Sundin's books. First, she gives readers characters that are interesting, realistic, and emotional. Even though her stories are set during WWII, I feel like I can relate to the people. Second, she makes history come to life. For whatever reason, there aren't a ton of books set during WWII. It's a fascinating period in history, and I love reading about it. Sundin brings interesting and sometimes obscure facts and features them in her books. I've totally enjoyed reading about female flight nurses during this series! Plus, I felt like I was in the midst of the action throughout this book in particular. Finally (and most importantly to me), faith is always a central theme throughout her books. She definitely doesn't do "cheesy" but God is a primary focus of the characters. I appreciate how she handles this and weaves it throughout fairly effortlessly. I'm in a phase right now where I'm not as interested in historical fiction as I've been in the past. BUT I knew I had to read In Perfect Time. I mean, it's the final book in the series after all! Sundin wrapped up the series beautifully and gave Kay and Roger a beautiful story. I highly recommend this series and look forward to reading whatever she gives us next! [5 stars] I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my fair and honest review.

"You can imagine how shocked he was to have a daughter like me. Irredeemable." ~Kay Lt. Kay Jobson might have believed she was irredeemable but her character was the perfect depiction of a Nightingale. In-flight nurses were invaluable during the war. Not only for their excellent care but for their effectiveness in keeping the morale of the wounded built up. I so fell in love with Kay's character. She was lovable, flirty, in high demand by the soldiers but very chaste. She knew the limits she should let a man go and she stuck to it. She loved fun and she was such a fun character but she had her insecurities, too. She kept a rag doll named Sissy her mom had made for her when she was a child. She was also a strong and determined woman with a father that was a fire and brimstone preacher. In the beginning, she really clashed with the hero, Roger Cooper. Roger was a C-47 pilot and a drummer with aspirations of playing in a big band. He loved God and carried a Bible that was given to him by a very good friend but he also had a past. Kay called him a fuddy duddy but it wasn't long before she saw Roger in a new light. I love war torn stories and my very favorites are centered around WWII. This is my first book by Sarah Sundin and I can honestly say it's one of my all-time favorite WWII romances. I haven't read the previous books in this series and I didn't gave to I order to follow this story but I am looking forward to going back and reading them. Sarah created such believable and lovable characters and her knowledge of the war, flying and nursing is testimony to the research that went into writing this book. The story is so engaging I felt like I was a part of it and I certainly hated to see it end. It's wrapped in a thin cloak of inspirational overtones that doesn't make the reader feel as if religion is being forced on them but sprinkled lightly. As Kay mentioned in the story, there are three types of religious people. Those that have a can of white paint and try to slather it on you, those that don't get huffy if you turn it down, and those that think you hold a can of black paint and want to slather it all over them. This book is the perfect balance of romance, drama and Christianity. I can honestly guarantee you can't read just one book in this series. You'll want to read them all. Sarah Sundin has created the perfect WWII romance series. I can't wait to read more of her books and she is now on my list of favorite authors. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves historical romance and especially those set in the WWII era. This is a must read!

In Perfect Time is the third book in the Wings of the Nightingale Series, and I have enjoyed them all. The books are written in as if we are the eyes of three different women and seeing the same events, each one the same but not. Of course there are a lot of different things that happen, as we all have our own lives. Oh how I loved this and all of the books, we relive WWII through the eyes of these people. We learn so many facts about the invasions, and what happened during this time, that we have either forgotten or didn’t know. These should be a must read for all Americans, the sacrifices made by these individuals that made our country free, if not for them we all might be speaking German? This book deals with a couple that may never end up together; they have so many insecurities, each from their upbringing. Hard to believe how parents can treat one child so different that they threat their others, great examples here. One has accepted the Grace of God, and forgiveness, or has he. The other is struggling with God, and her upbringing, of being raised in hypocritical religious family. The book wraps up everything, so sweetly, but always with a bid to drama, and uneasiness. I wish we could continue on in their lives, do they fulfill their dreams? Will these couples we have come to love, end up with the American dream? Or will they even make it out of this war alive? Come along and enjoy this wonderful historical read you won’t be disappointed. I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

Sarah Sundin is a superb storyteller. In this novel she writes about a sweet romance between flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson and pilot Lt. Roger Cooper during World War II. Even though Kay has every other military man pining for her, Roger resists her—outwardly. Both Kay and Roger have lingering hurts from the past and have difficulty believing they deserve each other. Misunderstandings and the risks of war pull them apart yet push them together. The reader will want to find out if Kay and Roger get past their secrets with like minds about their relationship.

Monday, August 18, 2014 In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin, © 2014 Wings of the Nightingale series, Book 3 Lieutenant Kay Jobson longs to go to the chief nurses' school when her flight nursing is over. Her supervising officer tells her that she is not taken seriously by the other nurses because of all the men she dates. Kay sees it as being in control ~ until she meets a man who is not responsive to her wiles. Because of her home life, she does not want any part of God. Because of Lieutenant Roger Cooper's past and home life, he does. Both are apprehensive of each other. Both are amazing and it is revealed as stresses turn them to purposes they both desire. Truth not lies. Roger gives Kay his Bible with all of his notes written inside along the margins. Infrequently they are in the same place. Kay has questions and Roger gives her his military and home addresses to write for his response. The author has written events so clearly you can identify with their thoughts and feelings. As a C-47 pilot, Roger is responsible for his carrier and those aboard. I like how Kay comes to terms with the changes in her life, while others are unsure of her turnabout. When the flight team bonds because of urgency, they become a true unit. What is important comes to the surface. This final story brings the series together, realizing the strength they have obtained and the future they have in perfect time. ***Thank you to Litfuse Publicity Group and Revell for sending me a copy of In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin to review.

I truly enjoyed With Every Letter and On Distant Shores, Sarah Sundin's earlier books about a group of transport nurses operating in the Italian theater.  Packed with the action of army hospitals, airfields, and those temporary tents that became everyone's homes, these books also offer believable stories of faith growing amidt danger.  Now Sundin has completed the series with Lt. Kay Jobson's story in the new book In Perfect Time. For years Kay had hidden behind a "play girl" game of flirtation.  Juggling multiple boyfriends at once, Kay actually kept everyone at bay, ending all relationships before they really started.  She never wanted anyone to get too close.  While she had bonded with nurses Mellie and Georgie, despite their strong Christian faith, she wanted nothing to do with the outspoken Christian pilot Lt. Roger Cooper.  She had enough of the "holier than thou" attitude from her judgmental family while growing up.  A simple Bible verse was enough to make all her father's condemnations echo over and over again in her memory. Little does Kay know that Roger hears similar past voices, his recent acceptance of his Savior only beginning to block out all the damage done by the years of put downs. The need to do their dangerous jobs competently compels both to shield their hurts and vulnerabilities, resulting in a very bumpy start to their friendship.  Neither can see any possibilities of it developing anything beyond a civil acceptance of the other.  In Perfect Time can easily be read as a stand alone book, but readers will get a better understanding of the transport nurses and their role in WWII if all three books are read. Only by reading all three books are you able to connect the story of friendship that is an underlying theme throughout the series.  Of the three books, I think In Perfect Time does the best job of blending a story of faith with a story of romance in an authentic wartime setting.  Sarah Sundin has done her research and it shines through in the smallest of details.  I received a copy of this book for review purposes from LITFUSE.

One word describes this book: WOW! Just… WOW! From page 1, you will be hooked! I’ve never been a fan of WWII era books but this one has made me into one! Sarah Sundin will take hold of your heartstrings even while she’s got you on the seat of your pants – just waiting for an explosion! I’m no WWII buff but the scenes read spot-on to me and the descriptions are wonderful. It’s like you can hear the engines drowning out everything around you! Or the salty sea air… And the characters… ooh the characters! There are whole worlds underneath the exterior of our Lt. Kay Jobson. She is a woman in control… or is she? And Lt. Roger Cooper is just as complex and complicated! They say opposites attract but similar personalities rub each other the wrong way. And oh how the sparks do fly! Now of course, I’m dying to get books 1 & 2 so I can read more of this amazing series! And I hope to see many more wonderful books from Sarah Sundin! You have made a fan out of me! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review!

Simply stated, I enjoyed everything about In Perfect Time - and the whole Wings of the Nightingale series, for that matter. World War II fiction is a genre I've only started reading recently, and Sarah Sundin deserves a lot of the credit. While In Perfect Time can stand alone, characters and setting continue throughout and reading the whole series will give a much deeper reading experience. The previous books are With Every Letter and On Distant Shores. This is an especially appealing series because World War II flight nurses were courageous pioneers - and while they didn't receive badges and medals, they risked their lives in dangerous operations. Sarah's writing exhibits extensive knowledge of historical events and locations, yet this never slows or overpowers the narrative.  Set in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations, with a focus on war-torn Italy and southern France, Sarah has the ability to make readers feel like they are actually in the scenes with the way she blends the serious and fun times. We experience everything from an emergency landing behind enemy lines and the courage of partisans, to the big bands and U.S. war bond tour. Opening in March 1944, In Perfect Time reunites us with Mellie, Tom, Georgie and John from the first two books, but the focus is on Lt. Kay Jobson and Lt. Roger Cooper. Something I especially appreciate about Sarah's writing is the depth she gives her characters. "For Lt. Kay Jobson, flight nursing . . . meant reconnecting a broken soldier with the shards of his humanity." With these opening words, we get a glimpse of Kay's heart for the wounded, a sharp contrast to the surface image she creates with her flirtatious dating of several men at the same time. She's bold and confident, driven to stay in control no matter what - but her bold façade masks deep hurts. Roger, a C-47 pilot who ferries supplies and paratroopers throughout the Mediterranean, is biding his time until he can become a big band drummer. Both Kay and Roger are appealing and vulnerable characters who have bought into the lies and put-downs received from their families through the years - Kay, that she was irredeemable, and Roger, that he would never amount to anything. As happens in real life, these factors effected their relationships and job performance. Christian fiction should inspire readers, and that is exactly what In Perfect Time did for me. One of my favorite parts was when Roger followed God's prompting and gave his Bible filled with personal notes to Kay. Being so attuned to God that we can sense His prompting and then be willing to follow it - that's something I think many of us strive for. And being open enough to share a painful past because it just might be what someone needs to hear. Readers will find the spiritual journeys of Roger and Kay very moving. Romance fans will not be disappointed, for while Roger and Kay's story is tender and sweet, the chemistry between them is great. In Perfect Time brings the storylines of Mellie & Tom, Georgie & John, Kay & Roger to a beautiful conclusion - and while many authors tend to rush their endings, Sarah gives one of the most satisfying conclusions I've ever read. Highly recommended. Thank you to Revell for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

In Perfect Time By Sarah Sundin In Perfect Time is the final book in Sarah Sundin’s, Wings of the Nightingale series. I enjoy Sarah's books. I like that they are Historical Christian Romance I don't have to worry about opening one of Sarah's books. Beautiful Army nurse Kay Jobson has it all the looks that turns all men's heads. Well except one pilot Lt Roger Cooper. Kay can't stand it cause she isn't catching him. Roger is devoted to God and Kay had lost her faith in God because of her parents. Story of love and forgiveness. Can the two come together and follow the path God has for them.. Wonderful book. This book would be great for readers who like history, and Christian romance. I was given this book by Revell for my own honest opinion.

WWII fiction at its best! With the 70th anniversary of so many important WWII events currently going on there has been a surge of interest, and with it has come a host of novels set in that era. Sarah Sundin's are some of the best! The story pulled me in from the very beginning and wouldn't let me go until the last page. Sarah Sundin knows her craft well. She managed to make me care about a heroine who is polar opposite of me. I agonized with Kay every time Roger pushed her away. And sometimes I just wanted to give them both a good shake when they needed it! The characters pull the reader into their world, making you think about them even when you have to lay the book aside for awhile, and gosh was that hard to do! In Perfect Time is a story full of emotion, new faith, forgiveness, and love. There is also plenty of danger and adventure, from the plane being downed over enemy territory to planes racing down a narrow canyon. One of the things that really stood out to me in this book is that the face that people often show isn't the real person. Smiles and flirting can cover great pain and a multitude of past hurts. In Perfect Time is an edge-of-your-seat ride through one of the most fascinating times in history that will leave wanting to read more and sorry when you turn that last page. Fans of historical fiction and WWII are in for a BIG treat with this book! (I received a copy of this book from RevellReads in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)

In the third installment of the Wings of the Nightengale series Sarah Sundin has once again brought a fabulous World War II story to life. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, but I think that this one is my favorite. In Perfect Time is the story of Lt. Kay Jobson and Lt. Roger Cooper. If you've read the previous books in the series you are already acquainted with these two. Kay is a flight nurse that has a fast reputation. Roger is a pilot and seems to go out of his way to avoid the lovely and vivacious Kay. The tension between the two just adds to the delicious build up of the blossoming romance. Roger has big regrets in his life, but he has found Jesus and is clinging to that saving faith with everything he has. He originally sees Kay as a stumbling block to be avoided at all costs. In truth Kay herself needs to meet Jesus on a personal level. When she does, just grab the Kleenex box because you'll need it. Another lovely thing about this book is that we get to catch up with some wonderful people from the former books. If you've read the first two books you'll be delighted to find out what Tom, Mellie, Hutch, and Georgie have been up to. It's always bittersweet to come to the ending of a series but I have not only been entertained by these books but I've also come away from them feeling like I learned just a bit more about this time in history. Sarah does a great job of mixing in facts about the events without boring you to tears.  If you enjoy historical fiction with a twist of romance I think you'll enjoy this series and particularly this book. My recommendation would be to indulge yourself by reading the series in order, With Every Letter, On Distant Shores, and finally In Perfect Time. Each of the books in the series were designed to be either read as a stand alone or in the series . . . I say go for the series!  I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
