Helen Carlisle married young, giving up all her dreams to keep her high school sweetheart from pouting. But now, Jim is dead from war related injuries, and still Helen isnít free. She has to play the part of the grieving widow for her in-laws, her two-year-old sonís grandparents. The bright spot in her day is her volunteer work.

Ray Novak loves to fly ó but unfortunately, heís just been assigned a position as a stock boy. He canít think of a good thing about his new assignment, except for Helen. She is a spot of sunshine in his life, and he adores her son, Jay-Jay.

Unfortunately, the Carlisles are encouraging Helen to date another man from a prominent family ó and they are very against Ray, claiming heís soft. When Ray and Helen are called upon to step out in faith, can they meet the challenges that face them?

Blue Skies Tomorrow is the third and final book in Ms. Sundinís Wings of Glory series. Each book stands alone, but they are all based on the three sons of the Novak family, so readers will want to read all three.

Ray is a sweetheart, a pastor at heart, kind and considerate. Helen is playing a role, being who she believes she needs to be in polite society, but she only feels free around Ray. I hoped that Helen would be able to be herself and find happiness.

The story is well-written, but it wasnít quite so engaging as the first two books in the series. I didnít grow to like Helen as much as I would like to, maybe because she was living a lie, but she seemed kind of flat. Still, this was an enjoyable read and I wonít hesitate to recommend it. Discussion questions are included at the end.
