With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin ~ Revell Blog Tour and Review

With Every Letter (Wings of the Nightingale, #1)

My Review: Sarah Sundin writes the best WWII dramas of any I've read!

Two outcasts connect through anonymous letters filled with encouragement and friendship in the midst of WWII.

Ms. Sundin writes a historical novel that has it all, emotion, well researched history, and friendship.

 I was surprised with how much I connected with the characters, especially Mellie. She struggled to connect with people, and people often mistook her shy awkwardness for conceit and aloofness. In her character I saw myself. I guess I just really liked Mellie, because she was so much like me, and she wasn't a blond-haired, blue-eyed girl, but had a different ethnic backround.

With this book I wasn't sure at first if I would be drawn in, because the main characters don't meet till much later in the book. But I truly felt that they were able to connect through their letters to each other. And I ended up loving the plot!

The characters grew in so many ways, and they had to take leaps of faith and go outside of their comfort zones. Both of the characters had to fight to not let what other people thought of them to define them, and I was cheering for both of them the whole way through! Many of the side characters surprised me and I loved this touching story of friendship.

The historical details are very precise and I can tell that Ms. Sundin put alot of work into the researching of this book.

Overall there wasn't anything that I didn't love about With Every Letter, there were so many little details that Ms. Sundin brought together beautifully, and some were very poignant. And I just loved both Mellie and Tom and how they faced their struggles in a very realistic way, and how they grew in their faith. With Every Letter is a well woven tale of love and friendship, and I highly recommend it!
