Book Review: The Land Beneath Us (Sunrise at Normandy Book #3) by Sarah Sundin

The Land Beneath Us (Sunrise at Normandy Book #3) by [Sundin, Sarah]

The Land Beneath Us (Sunrise at Normandy Book #3) by Sarah Sundin


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?


My thoughts:

The well researched history was enough to capture my attention and keep me turning the pages, but the romance, love, faith, forgiveness, and mystery is what put The Land Beneath Us over the top for me.  

The story that was focused on the tragedies that happened in both Clay and Leah's lives and at times I wondered how they could possibly overcome them.  In all their circumstances, God was there through it all.  It's not many instances that I pick two favorite characters, but both Clay and Leah spoke to my heart.   

For history buffs: You'll find yourself on the shores of Normandy and the surrounding country side with descriptions that make you feel your right in the action.  There were a few things that I did not know that were quite interesting.  It's a tough and sad battle, one that we should never forget.

A great great read!

My Menu Plan for this Week 2/17/20!



I'm went out to the freezer this morning and got that turkey that I bought on sale last Thanksgiving.  Whew, that takes a load off my mind of what to have for dinner this week.  Turkey leftovers are the best!  

I hope to clear out the freezer soon. It needs defrosting as soon as I do.  After looking at how much is in there, that should be around April.  Then we can proceed with filling it back up!  


Monday                  Cheeseburgers and a salad

Tuesday                  Hot dogs with chili sauce

Wednesday             Leftovers

Thursday                Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and rolls

Friday                     Leftovers- we usually like to do an open faced sandwich plate

Saturday                 Turkey noodle soup

Sunday                   Turkey Pot Pie

What's on your menu this week?
