Forever Thankful book review

I just finished Forever Thankful, by Sherrilyn Polf, and I wanted to share it with you.

The book starts out action packed, as a female pilot is forced to make an emergency landing in a blizzard on the side of a mountain.

You can imagine her husband's concern when she goes missing, especially since she's pregnant!

Fortunately, Dena lands safely and is well cared for by the strangers who spot her plane, and she gets reunited with her family.

The book talks a lot about Carl's job in the aviation industry.  Their baby arrives safely, and is a girl, to everyone's delight.  They have twin boys from Dena's first marriage.  With Dena being a pilot, and Carl an executive, the family travels a lot more than most people in the WW2 era.

The book weaves a timeline of historical events into a family story.  I found the reactions of the characters to various happenings touching and thought provoking.  It's easy to see, on this side of history, that the war in Europe would end with the death of Hitler and Mussolini, but for the people living in that time period, it represented still more uncertainty.

  • 1944. War was still going on. Three years and no end could be seen by Dena. She was weary of rationing food, fuel, and clothing. She was tired of men being killed. Every family had a loss, it seemed. Blue stars and flags hung on every home. After three months away from Carl and her boys, Dena enjoyed the chance to sit and watch her sons play. She was expecting another child in early August. So far she felt great, but… 1945. Changes came to Dena’s household and to the nation. Both Roosevelt and Mussolini die while Hitler commits suicide. Dena wonders how the world will cope and will this end or escalate the war? Carl takes a job a Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA. More changes. Dena will move across country. Her heart is raising three children yet she still wants to fly. Will she ever fly again?
