Litfuse Review: On Distant Shores by:Sarah Sundin

 On Distant Shores (Wings of the Nightingale, #2)
About the Book:
Lt. Georgiana Taylor has everything she could want. A comfortable boyfriend back home, a loving family, and a challenging job as a flight nurse. But in July 1943, Georgie’s cozy life gets decidedly more complicated when she meets pharmacist Sgt. John Hutchinson. Hutch resents the lack of respect he gets as a noncommissioned serviceman and hates how the war keeps him from his fiancĂ©e. While Georgie and Hutch share a love of the starry night skies over Sicily, their lives back home are falling apart. Can they weather the hurt and betrayal? Or will the pressures of war destroy the fragile connection they’ve made?

 About the Author:

 Sarah Sundin enjoys writing about the drama and romance of the World War II era. The Wings of the Nightingale series (With Every Letter, 2012, On Distant Shores, August 2013, and In Perfect Time, August 2014) follows three World War II flight nurses as they find love, friendship, and peril in the skies and on the shores of the Mediterranean. The Wings of Glory series from Revell (A Distant Melody, A Memory Between Us, and Blue Skies Tomorrow) follows three brothers who are B-17 bomber pilots during World War II. Sundin lives in northern California with her husband, three children, an antisocial cat, and a yellow lab bent on destroying her writing career. When she isn't driving kids to tennis and karate, she works on-call as a hospital pharmacist and teaches Sunday school and women's Bible studies.

My Review:
 Georgie can only think about how much she wants to go home and start a new life with her boyfriend, but as the days of being lieutenant drag on she begins to doubt what she really wants in life.

John being a pharmacist during war time isn't easy, especially when you've got a girl back home waiting to marry you when you come home.

 Georgie and Lieutenant Lambert head out to a pharmacy that came out to Sicily along with them. While Lambert goes to speak with someone, Georgie heads to the pharmacy to speak with the pharmacist about moving the shipment from the jeep they came in. But Georgie didn't expect to walk in to a place were men haven't seen women in a while or were there's a handsome pharmacist. Georgie soon takes a liking to John. They end up doing a few things together, from looking at the stars to telling her of the ways to make aspirin. But when it seems all at home is falling apart will these two find a way through it?
