With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin

Mellie Blake, a flight nurse in WWII, and Lieutenant Tom MacGilliver, an engineer in charge of constructing air strips, agree to an anonymous letter writing campaign as a morale building program. Tom and Mellie begin sharing parts of their past lives that have never been shared with anyone else and as a result a relationship soon develops. Mellie has been rejected all her life and friendless, being shy and never smiling. Being competent and caring as a nurse isn't enough and she must overcome her shyness which is hard work for Mellie. Tom has deep secrets in his past - he is the son of a convicted murderer. He is a very warm and caring person, but just not able to get past the sins of his father.

This is a captivating story with well developed characters who overcome a myriad of obstacles. The storyline has a strong message of faith, forgiveness, and redemption. My favorite part of the book was the beautifully written ending. This book also gives historical insight to WWII - a great read by a new author for me.
