Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sundin displays her usual knack for weaving historical detail into a rousing war drama in this enjoyable launch of the Sunrise at Normandy series…Faith elements are strong, portrayed as more than mere emotional support; both Dorothy and Wyatt wrestle with and ultimately rely on God during the life-threatening trials they face. Sundin’s lively book combines heart-pounding war action with inspirational romance to great effect.” Publishers Weekly
“The author…kicks off a new wartime series, mixing her usual excellent historical research with fast-paced, breathtaking suspense…This period romance will have wide appeal.” Library Journal
“Sundin’s research is fantastic and her historical research is second to none. It’s very obvious that she cares about getting details correct, and they add an incredible dimension to the story because it becomes more than just a romantic tale (although the romance is wonderfully portrayed as well). Love triangles abound, and it’s not clear until the conclusion exactly who will end up together. The mystery surrounding Dorothy’s father’s business adds another layer of intrigue to this fantastic novel.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
