The love of strong, faithful women really conquers all…especially when fate imprisons two Texas Navy pilots in one of the Vietnam War’s deadliest POW jungle camps. Childhood friends Andy Stevens and Wade Hamilton share the same dream of becoming fighter pilots. With tearful send-offs and ‘until death do us part’ promises from high school sweethearts, they finally turn their boyhood aspirations into reality when they are appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy. But their idyllic dreams quickly turn into their own Hell on Earth when they are captured as POWs and must fight to stay alive. With the unwavering love of the women they leave behind and a fierce loyalty to their unconditional friendship, divine intervention saves their lives.
Supernatural mercy in the form of a brave “angel” brings Andy and Wade home to the devoted women who never gave up hope. Despite the fact that she doesn’t know whether her husband is alive or dead behind enemy lines, Rebecca (Andy’s wife) remains strong and never falters in her devotion to Andy. She relies on her faith and love to get her through her darkest days. When Andy finally calls Rebecca after his escape from the POW camp, she reveals an unexpected secret that makes his homecoming even more bittersweet and poignant.
Sons in The Clouds weaves a raw emotional drama that reveals the tender fragility of human relationships, and leaves readers filled with hopeful messages long after the final page is read

This is a wonderful story that touches on so many issues we are all going through in todays world. I loved the two main characters. This book made me cry, laugh, and totally touched my heart. I'll be looking for more titles by this author!
This was the first ebook purchased as a "guinea pig" for my android phone. Personally speaking, I like to hold an actual book but because I was intrigued by the storyline and the cost was reasonable, I decided to give it a shot. And I'm so pleased I did! I had to get use to reading it on my phone but the book itself made it easy because I enjoyed it so much. I found the story to be quite moving and inspiring. It is a wonderful story of friendship,unconditional love and bravery. I really enjoyed the author's writing style and use of imagery to tell his story........for me that made the book a good read. Look forward to more books from the author.
This was an amazing book. I loved the main characters and military-theme. I felt like I was reading a screenplay and his vivid imagery transported me back to the late 60s/early 70s and could feel the raw, emotional vulnerability of his characters. He touched themes that really tug at the heartstrings and some parts left me teary-eyed. The two main characters reminded me of Maverick and Goose from "Top Gun" but with more edge and personality. As the sister of two Naval officers, I could very much relate to the Navy theme interwoven throughout Mr. Mitchell's book. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for an inspirational novel with a modern twist. If you are a fan of aviation or military history, you will really enjoy the story!
