Publisher's Summary

Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she’s never met - even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence - he’s been trying to escape his infamous name for years.

As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other’s true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are? Or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?

Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing - and true love.

With Every Letter is a beautiful love story and has everything you want in a novel: romance, suspense, and characters you care about from the very first page.

A Wonderful Story About Having Faith in God!

A lovely story about having faith and trusting God. The story is set during World War ll. Tom is an officer in North Africa and Mellie is a flight nurse. Everyone has heard of Tom because of a decision made by a family member when he was a child, and Mellie faces insecurities that she developed as a child. Both must learn to trust in God and have faith in the plan he has set before them without allowing their past and insecurities to hinder them. This is a must read! Sarah Sundin weaves the love of God and the faith and trust we must have in Him into every book she writes, and her gift for details is wonderful. I am blessed everytime I read a book by Sarah.

great story and wonderful narrator!

I loved this story. It may have gone a tad long but never lost my attention. The narrator was one of the best I've heard. I'm not sure if the military truly allowed so much lovey-dovey stuff, so I chalked that up to fiction and just enjoyed the story. I highly recommend this one.

Enjoyed every minute

This is a historically well researched book and a fantastic love story. It's nice to find a captivating story that is written with Christian values. I'm a busy mom with young kids and haven't read a book in a long time, but with the audio feature I "read" the whole book while exercising. Took a few months, but it was fun to be entertained while working out.

Yes it is better than the print version because The narrator hooked me from the very beginning. I couldn't wait to find out the outcome of the chracters stories.This audio book is an excellent listen.

What did you like best about this story?

The romance. Suspense and the friendships between the chracters

What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

Everything! She made you fall in love with the main chracters. She made you feel every emotion and conflict that arose in the story. I would listen to her again.I hope she will narrate the other books in this series.

If you could take any character from With Every Letter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Vera I wanted to find out more about her life and her backstory.

unexpectedly religious

Any additional comments?

One thing that struck me was that the main characters are very religious. It is something that comes out in almost all of the narratives. Some may like this aspect, other may not. I think it's prevalent enough that I was surprised it wasn't mentioned in the description.

With Every Letter

With Every letter is such an uplifting book! It brought back many memories from a time during the Vietnam war when I was one of those letter writers ! We were given names of service men during the war with the hopes to boost their morale . Two of those men came to visit my family and we share a wonderful meal together . My family became theirs during our correspondence . They said it have them great courage and hope during those long hours in the war zone . I sent them prayers and scripture as well so they knew God was watching over them .
