The Sky Above Us Reviews
What I Loved: I’ve been invested in the Paxton family since page one of book one. The Sky Above Us was just as remarkable as The Sea Before Us, and I’m eagerly waiting for book 3 of the series.
The Sky Above Us was everything I’ve come to expect from Sundin: a sound message for the soul, endearing characters, a timeless romance, an accurate WWII setting, and all the historic details your heart can hold.
I always appreciate Sundin’s characters because they’re often humble Christian role models. Vio ...more
I have enjoyed all of Sarah Sundin's books, and I've felt for a while that her books get better and better with each new series, but this series is something special; the way that the brothers were separated and how they are coming back together on the battlefield is spectacular. And as much as I enjoyed the previous book, I think I like this one even more. Granted, I ran out of extra stars long ago, so you can't tell by the rating.
I almost felt differently. The moment Adler decided to buck the ...more
I enjoyed my time spent reading this story about Adler Paxton. The historical details are exceptional as to be expected. The characters are vibrant and multifaceted. The plot was well written and Sundin even tossed in a surprise that I didn't see coming! The only downside is that I have to wait a year before I can get my hands on the next book.
Violet has dreamed of becoming a missionary since she was a little girl. On the cusp of seeing that dream come true, it was snatched away when her fiance ...more
Sunrise at Normandy series is about the three Paxton brothers and one dreadful day and night that tears up their family and sends each into World War 2. The Sky Above Us is Adler’s story. Not only did Adler have to deal with the devastating death of his fiancé, but he also caused some more problems that shook what was left of his family to the core. Three years later he is now Lt. Adler Paxton involved in air battles with the Germans. He is full of passion and fire and must learn to rein that in ...more
There aren't many books that I greet with as much anticipation and delight as a new one from Sarah Sundin. Her books never disappoint and The Sky Above Us is another stellar WWII romance from one of the masters.
The whole concept of this series is so great. To get a look at the events leading through D-Day from the eyes of the three estranged Paxton brothers is fascinating and informative. In the first book we were at sea with Wyatt, this time we're in the air with Adler, and next time we'll be ...more

If you've read a Sarah Sundin book before you probably know what to expect, but yet she still surprises and brings out amazing truths and fascinating tid-bits of wartime and serving the Lord through difficult choices.
I knew I would be hooked with the storyline as I'm serving the Lord in another country, so it was interesting to see how Violet grasped what the Lord's plan for her throughout the book. I loved that she a ...more
I have been SO eager to read this book! I love this author's books, and the first book in this series was one of my favorites of hers!
This book didn't disappoint! It features another aspect of the build up and battle of D-Day (the battle in the air this time). I loved the character arcs of both Addler and Violet. Both of them had issues and both learned and grew so much in this book!
My favorite part by far had to be that both the main characters loved Zane Grey books! Zane Grey isn't a well kn ...more
