ON THE WINGS OF THE EAGLE by Kathleen Sherwood
Jack, Katie Beth and Charlie grew up together and are all anxious to graduate and begin the next phase in their life. For Jack it's college, for Katie Beth it's nursing school and Charlie isn't sure yet. But one thing is sure, Katie Beth and Jack have discovered that what they fell for each other is more than just friendship. Then came the bombing of Pearl Harbor which would ultimately change the paths of these three friends. They would each play a roll in serving their country at a time when love of country and faith in God was important. Folks sacrificed and some made the ultimate sacrifice. Jack and Katie Beth's love will be tested on many different levels. Can it survive the ravages of war?
On the Wings of the Eagle will take you through the tragedy and triumph of World War II. We see how God's watchful care was present even in devastating circumstances. You'll quickly find yourself immersed into the lives of Jack, Katie Beth and Charlie as they each play a vital roll in their service. I was encouraged, as a reader, by the faith of these folks and how that played out into everyday life, in practical ways, and what the influence of that was on other peoples lives. One thing that really made this story extra special was that the war stories were actually true. They were stories the author gathered from family and friends. Keep that in mind as you're reading and be sure to read the author's note at the end. So settle in and get ready because On the Wings of the Eagle you'll find a story that will linger in your mind long after the last page is turned.
