All of you: by Sarah Monzon
Historical / contemporary Christian romance / time split novel
Sometimes the past reaches forward to bring hope to the future.
With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears…or countless people may die.
Maryland, Present Day
Jacquelyn Rogers can rebuild anything…except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she’s worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a cocky former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.
After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s military dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection.
This is a beautifully written time slip. In the past, when reading time slips, I’ve come to realize that I prefer either the contemporary or historical timeline, not both, as I’m reading.
At last, I’ve found a time slip where I was engaged throughout both the historical and contemporary romance. Both stories were beautiful, romantic, engaging, and well-written with well-developed characters. Sarah has a fantastic style and prose, and is adept in her portrayal of voice. That is, between the historical story line, and contemporary story line, there were distinct differences in voice based on the time in which the story was taking place. I LOVED it. That truly drew me in, and set the tone for each story line.
Also I loved the fact that she tackled something as delicate and unique as writing about a double amputee. That is pretty awesome and he’s a fantastic hero in this heartwarming story.
This is a beautiful novel. If you love time slip novels, Sarah Monzon is the author to read.
