Sarah Sundin has penned another outstanding novel with A Memory Between Us. Once again she has provided the reader with wonderfully complex but realistic characters, interesting historical details, and vividly descriptive settings. As the two primary characters, Jack and Ruth each have major issues to overcome in their lives – a painful experience in Ruth’s past that still has a stranglehold on her emotions, and the pride and self-reliance that keeps Jack somewhat detached from the people around him. As Jack and Ruth wrestle with their own personal demons, situations arise that force them to rely on their faith in God to sustain them and to begin the healing process in their lives. In their supporting roles, Charlie and May are strong characters whose dependability and willingness to speak their minds contribute greatly to the storyline.
With an abundance of action, more than one romance, a mixture of drama, humor, and considerable emotional content, the story was enhanced by a strong message of faith. A Memory Between Us kept me turning pages until late in the night. I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys historical fiction, particularly those interested in WWII.
