Book Review - With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin

Publisher's blurb: They know everything about each other--except their real names.
Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she's never met--even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence--he's been trying to escape his infamous name for years.
As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other's true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?
Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing--and true love.

My review: I found the beginning a little a slow to get into but then ended up loving this book. Some of the day to day duties had to be explained and I found them uninteresting, but understood why they were there. I found the secondary characters interesting as well, the girls in Mellie's group as well as Tom's men. Not sure I believe the controversy behind Tom's father, but people can be weird, so anything is possible. I would recommend this book to others.

This seems to be quite the book. i've already seen this on a few other blog pages. Thanks for mentioning it as i'm deciding whether or not to get it but it sounds very compelling.
