Book Review

All Of You by Sarah Monzon

I was thoroughly delighted to find that this book is a dual timeline story with a perfect ending.

Present day collide with WWII and this reader was smiling from ear to ear at the conclusion.

Michael’s life changes in a split second when he is the survivor of a freak accident, his career and seemingly his purpose is ripped away from him in an instant. His struggles and recovery, both physically as well as mentally and emotionally have the reader cheering him on as well as sometimes wanting to give him a lecture. Not to worry, his family get in there and do it for you.

Jackie is a spunky young woman and I love how the author has balanced her strengths with her insecurities.

I read this book in two days, enjoyed the family relationships and the peek back into history, particularly WWII. Definitely a thoroughly satisfying read for this lover of dual timelines.

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.

England, 1942

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.
