I was given this book for an honest review.
All of You is the second book in Sarah Monzon’s Carrington Family series. I have not read the first one, Finders Keepers. I did not feel like I had missed anything by not having read the first book.
Let me start this review off by saying I absolutely loved this book. When I started reading it I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. The author used dual storylines from different points in time, modern day and 1944. I was afraid I would get lost in the transitions or find one story appealing and the other not so much.
I was wrong. The author did an excellent job of dancing between storylines and keeping the reader’s attention.
Both stories had strong female leads. The author didn’t just use two random time periods and storylines. The stories were connected and absolutely so.
I highly recommend this book. Go buy it now!
Here’s the blurb for the book:
Maryland, Present Day
Jacqueline Rogers can rebuild anything…except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she’s worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.
After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection.
With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears. Or countless people may die.
Sometimes the past reaches forward to bring hope to the future.
