    "Great Story and Narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of With Every Letter to be better than the print version?

    Yes it is better than the print version because The narrator hooked me from the very beginning. I couldn't wait to find out the outcome of the chracters stories.This audio book is an excellent listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The romance. Suspense and the friendships between the chracters


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    Everything! She made you fall in love with the main chracters. She made you feel every emotion and conflict that arose in the story. I would listen to her again.I hope she will narrate the other books in this series.


    If you could take any character from With Every Letter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Vera I wanted to find out more about her life and her backstory.

    "A Wonderful Story About Having Faith in God!"

    A lovely story about having faith and trusting God. The story is set during World War ll. Tom is an officer in North Africa and Mellie is a flight nurse. Everyone has heard of Tom because of a decision made by a family member when he was a child, and Mellie faces insecurities that she developed as a child. Both must learn to trust in God and have faith in the plan he has set before them without allowing their past and insecurities to hinder them. This is a must read! Sarah Sundin weaves the love of God and the faith and trust we must have in Him into every book she writes, and her gift for details is wonderful. I am blessed everytime I read a book by Sarah.

    "unexpectedly religious"
    Any additional comments?

    One thing that struck me was that the main characters are very religious. It is something that comes out in almost all of the narratives. Some may like this aspect, other may not. I think it's prevalent enough that I was surprised it wasn't mentioned in the description.

    "Not what I expected"
    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story but... the description needs to be changed. This book is very religious yet no mention is made of that in the description?! I was drawn to the book because of the time period and what I read in the description. I felt like everything in the description was 2nd place to the religious parts. I don't have anything against religious texts but when you are promised one thing and get another.....

    Story
    "WW1 Hist. Fiction/Flight Nurses"
    Would you listen to With Every Letter again? Why?

    No, but I would definitely listen the first time.
    The story line & time & location were very interesting, if you enjoy historical fiction and nursing. It seemed that the author dragged out some of the situations for too long. There are times you find yourself wanting to strangle the main character because of this.

    It's a good story, though. I learned how ordinary citizens were used during the war, and how air fields were built as the Army advanced. It was interesting to see how nurses were viewed during that time, and how hard it was to convince some doctors and military men of how helpful they could be.

    It was a good picture of how we can incorrectly perceive situations as a child or adult, and let that color our reactions the rest of our lives. It's a good picture of how difficult it is to obediently forgive others, but how that pays off in our life and the lives of all those around us.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The dog was fun.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    She has a nice voice.


    If you could rename With Every Letter, what would you call it?

    Don't Ever Give Up


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sort of surprised an editor didn't encourage the author to condense some of the drawn-out struggles of the character, but maybe it was just me.
