Sarah Sundin ~ In Perfect Time

I love welcoming the amazing Sarah Sundin to Ink Dots. She visits each year so we can celebrate her newest release. Sarah's the author of six historical novels, including In Perfect Time (Revell, August 2014). Her novel On Distant Shores was a double finalist for the 2014 Golden Scroll Awards. Sarah lives in northern California with her husband and three children, works on-call as a hospital pharmacist, and teaches Sunday school and women’s Bible studies. You can find her at
In Perfect Time Bold, sophisticated, and coy, World War II flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her. Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?

Sarah Says...

If I could explore anywhere in the world tomorrow, it would be...Ooh! What fun! A month ago I would have said Boston to research my next book series—but I was able to spend a week in Boston in July and explore to my heart’s content. Instead I’ll choose the Scottish highlands. Last time we were in Britain, we were so close (Stirling Castle!) but didn’t have time to get up to the highlands. Oh... I'd love to follow you around if we're headed to Scotland! Great choice. 

The best thing I did today is...Checked off a whole lot of items on my to-do list. A whole lot. This was a really boring day for me to answer that question.

A secret pleasure of mine is... Gumdrops. Love that fake fruity chewiness!

I wish I could relive the day when I... My wedding day—twenty-five years ago this August 26! First of all, like most brides, I was so dazed by preparations that the whole day was a blur. Second, my grandparents and my husband’s grandparents were there—they’re all gone now. How I’d love to sit down with them and ask them all the questions I should have asked when I was younger—and just to enjoy their company again. Congratulations! We're celebrating our 25th next year, too. I bet your wedding dress had pouffy sleeves like mine! 

When I was a child I dreamed I would...Be a prima ballerina, a mommy, and a protozoologist (a scientist who studies protozoa, the one-celled organisms that live in the sea). All at the same time.

I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but...I still want to be a prima ballerina. Not happening. Lol, Sarah. Why not? I bet you've still got all the moves. :) Thanks so much for visiting with us again, Sarah. Wishing you all the best with In Perfect Time. 


Sarah's offering a copy of In Perfect Time to one lucky Ink Dots visitor. Tell us who you'd like to chat to from 25 years ago ... who is no longer with us. I'd love to chat with my grandmother. She lived long enough to celebrate my wedding, but left us a month before my first wedding anniversary. I still miss her. A lot. 

How about you? Leave your answer in the comment thread below and I'll announce the winner on Friday. 

Good luck and happy reading,
