Here we are gathering again talking about one of my favorite things! What is that? Reading really good books. The last book that I have finished is a book by Terri Wangard. So here is my Soar Like Eagles book review.
Soar Like Eagles is the third in a three book series called Promise For Tomorrow.
Because of the way the book has been written (I had not read the first two books in the series) I didn’t feel lost in the story at all and feel it can be read as a stand-alone book.
What is Soar Like Eagles About?
Soar Like Eagles begins in the United States during WWII and then you follow the characters overseas as their lives unfold. In the beginning, we meet Carol and Chet at a railway station serving as a wartime canteen where she is part of a group showing hospitality to the servicemen taking the train headed off to war.
The women are serving these brave souls giving their all and they use their ration cards to provide comfort for them. Carol is a writer for Chet and Carol have but a few moments talking but later as he is chugging away on the train wish that they would have shared information to keep in contact. Carol shrugs it off knowing that she too is headed out of the country and going overseas where she is joining the Red Cross in England. She is wanting to see the war up close and longs to be a part of it.
What I Learned
I didn’t know much about the Red Cross ladies in WWII and this was something new for me. The story follows Chet and Carol. He a navigator stationed in England and Carol a Red Cross doughnut girl and how their paths cross as war wages. I don’t want to give it away but I really enjoyed and recommend this book. It has romance but is a clean book. It reveals another side of the war. One fought from the air as D-day is viewed from a Plexiglas window on a bomber from four miles up and then from below when the unthinkable happens.
