An Epic Story
Soar Like Eagles by Terri Wangard is a Christian historical romance. It is the third book in the Promise For Tomorrow series but can be read as a stand-alone. I did enjoy meeting up with familiar faces from previous novels.
Soar Like Eagles concentrates on navigator Chet and Red Cross girl Carol. Both come from America to England to serve in 1944. The reader follows their fortunes as the action alternates between the two. The reader becomes intimately acquainted with war as the action moves from land to sky, England to mainland Europe. War is futile. Mothers on both sides lose sons and daughters. “It ought to be raining because Heaven is surely weeping.” War is not glorified in the novel. Terri Wangard pulls no punches. She tells it as it is. It is messy. It is hard. It is gruesome.
