missions. He has respect for her toughness, as a girl growing up with a dream to fly she bucked convention to rise up through the ranks and become a capable fighter pilot. Bruce's job is as a medic recuing downed pilots or soldiers caught behind enemy lines. Their courtship is daunting because of all the miles seperating them and the physical danger they face everyday.

Style Characterisics: Pacing, clarity, structure, narrative devices, etc.
The story alternates points of view, mostly between Grace and Bruce with mutual friends also getting in on the action. Of course with their occupations there is plenty of opportunity for action and adventure scenes. Little touches, like the details about Bruce's elderly dog, add a realistic touch to the story.

How Good is it?
Seemed to be about average for books of this type, not much to make it stand out.
