Book Review: On Wings of the Morning

On Wings of the Morning by Marie Bostwick, is one of those rare accidental pick-ups at the library that really paid off. An enjoyable and easy read, I was pleasantly surprised to find faith, hope, and love, all set in the backdrop of WWII.

Morgan and Georgia are both illegitimate children, and they share a love of flying, but their backgrounds really couldn't be much different. Most of the war (and therefore the book) is spent apart, like many of the men and women who served either abroad or at home during that time. You really pay attention to each individual, not just the couple. It's not a traditional "romance".

Here is what I appreciated about the book: honest feelings, no tawdry sex, and the deep sense of responsiblilty to family and country.
