This trilogy begins with book one titled, With Every Letter followed by book two, On Distant Shores and concludes with In Perfect Time. Each novel focuses on a group of nurses who help take care of the sick and injured that are being evacuated to other hospitals.

In the final book, Kay is highlighted as she begins to think about her future once the war has come to an end. Her desire to be a chief nurse is thwarted when she is confronted by her lack of leadership, both on the field of war and off. Kay begins to rethink her life when Roger Cooper shares his heart and testimony about his walk with the Lord. Throughout the story readers will enjoy the tension between Kay and Cooper, wondering how in the world they might have a budding romance. Surviving months in hiding from the enemy, flying in less than desirous weather conditions while providing medical care and trying to grasp the Truth of God’s love for her is a lot for Kay to handle. Cooper has his past held tightly to his vest until he shares it with Kay so she will understand the depth and breadth of His love.
The audience will see themes of love, redemption and choosing to believe Him or their past. The truth shown is that while not all peoples’ pasts are filled with wonderful memories, God can take the memories and use them for His glory. I loved how parents are shown for the humans they are even when at times it just isn’t pretty. Words can hurt no matter who they come from, and the characters had to choose whether to believe God or the past lies that kept playing inside their minds. I thought it wonderful how when God changes us it matter little whether others see the changes in us or not, but we are changed because of what He has done for us. I thank the women who served in WWII in many capacities whose stories have been shared for generations to read, learn from and follow in their footsteps. I know the author had to end the series where she did and well done it is too! However, I will miss reading more about these characters yet look forward to what comes next from the pen of this amazing writer!
My rating is 5 stars.
