The Land Beneath Us by Sarah Sundin - Cover Reveal

I have become such a fan of Sarah Sundin! Her books have such fascinating plots, wonderful characters, and great spiritual messages. Not to mention the interesting historical tidbits that I learn along the way.

She has now revealed the cover for her latest installment in the Sunrise at Normandy series, The Land Beneath Us. This has been a great series about brothers who have separated by a tragic event and then all go to war. Each one culminates in the events on D-Day and focuses on a different part of the invasion, Sea, Sky, and now Land.

I am very excited about this book!

Here is the description, and after that, I’ll share the cover. . .

In 1943, Private Clay Paxton trains hard with the US Army Rangers at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, determined to do his best in the upcoming Allied invasion of France. With his future stolen by his brothers' betrayal, Clay has only one thing to live for--fulfilling the recurring dream of his death.

Leah Jones works as a librarian at Camp Forrest, longing to rise above her orphanage upbringing and belong to the community, even as she uses her spare time to search for her real family--the baby sisters she was separated from so long ago.

After Clay saves Leah's life from a brutal attack, he saves her virtue with a marriage of convenience. When he ships out to train in England for D-day, their letters bind them together over the distance. But can a love strong enough to overcome death grow between them before Clay's recurring dream comes true?
