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. . .

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?
