Welcome! I have a special treat for you today...the first of many to come.... As a marketing associate, I meet up with lot's of other marketing people, publicists, etc.
Well one of these fine ladies is Ms. Audra Jennings with Litfuse Group. Audra has contacted her authors and we'll be spotlighting some of them on Tuesday Treasure, Thursday Thoughts and occasionally Saturday Spotlights!
Today we welcome Ms. Sarah Sundin to Tuesday Treasure....
The greatest gifts reflect the heart of the giver. In twenty-five years of marriage, my husband has given me many lovely presents. While he has exceptional taste in jewelry—all the more remarkable since he has absolutely no fashion sense—the gifts that mean the most to me are things that might seem odd to others.
For example, a model of World War II Douglas C-47 cargo plane. How many women have such an item on their Christmas wish list? But my current Wings of the Nightingale series involves three World War II flight nurses who take care of patients on board C-47s, and the hero of my latest novel, In Perfect Time, is a C-47 pilot.
When my husband built this model for me, he showed his care for me and for what I like. Also, since he was slow to understand this whole crazy “writing thing”—he married a practical pharmacist after all!—the gift showed his acceptance of my career detour better than words could say.
Best of all, the model showed his heart for building, for creating, for giving his time—for who he is. My husband is a man of few words, but he shows his love through actions. I have a physical manifestation of his love sitting on top of my desk to remind me whenever I want to grumble about the man I married.
His next project . . . building a model of a World War II Gleaves class destroyer for my upcoming Waves of Freedom series! How I love that man.

She belongs to American Christian Fiction Writers, CAN and AWSA. Sundin plans to continue to focus on World War II for her upcoming Waves of Freedom series about three naval officers based in Boston.
A graduate of UC San Francisco School of Pharmacy, Sundin works on-call as a hospital pharmacist. During WWII, her grandfather served as a pharmacist’s mate (medic) in the Navy, and her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England.

Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her. Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts? Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.
