All of you by Sarah Monzon



Jacqueline Rogers can rebuild anything...except the shambles of her past. A restorer of vintage planes, she's worked hard to earn the reputation of being one of the guys. The last thing she needs is a former Navy pilot fighting his own inner demons stepping in to defend her from dangers she thought she’d outrun long ago. Some battles must be fought alone.

After a freak accident severs Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington’s dreams, as well as two limbs, he’s left with nothing but a fragile faith and a duty-bound promise to watch out for his friend’s baby sister. A promise she insists is as unnecessary as it is unappreciated. But when she turns the tables and begins to weld together the broken parts of his life, it may be his heart that is in need of protection.

England, 1942

With the world at war yet again, Alice Galloway rejects her father’s traditional expectations and offers her piloting expertise to the Air Transport Auxiliary. She may be a woman in a man’s world, but when she overhears key intelligence, she must find the strength to transcend boundaries and her own fears. Or countless people may die.


First of all let me say Wow!!!!! What a fantastic story written straight from the author's heart!!!
Friends can come in all shapes or sizes, whole or not. It's what's in the heart that matters.
I love how the author weaves past with present and eventually connecting to the present.
You see, the past is what makes us what we are today.
Some of our past is good. Some is not.
I enjoyed the banter between Henry and Alice. I immediately felt the connection that they'd make a great team. Just like Jack and Michael.
People certainly can be stubborn and as I've said before love can sneak up on you or hit you between the eyes when I least expect it. So can friendship.
God has a plan for each and every one of us. We just have to figure out where we fit into the puzzle like Michael had to.
Yes, most of us do get angry at God for one reason or another. He doesn't do mean things to us. Sometimes things happen for a reason or maybe it was God's plan. Who knows?
When a door shuts, other times different doors open. Most times for the better. Even if it is hard for us to except.
I love listening to older people tell their stories!! Sometimes a life lesson can be learned from hearing them out because you never knew what they've had to face to get where they are today. In my book, it's called respect and love.
Whenever I see a veteran of any kind I always try and thank them for their service for without them and our wonderful Savior we wouldn't have the freedom we have today!!!
This story had me laughing and crying in some places. It definitely leaves you thinking long after the book is finished
I stayed with the book because I just couldn't put it down!!!
I think I'm going to have to say my heroine is Alice and all the women who did their part in WW2.
I will say this; I had a grandfather who fought in Germany in the 2nd ww and among his things we found after he died was a swastika flag.
For reasons unknown he kept it.
I was shocked when I found it.
I received a complimentary copy from from the author and in no way required to review this book.
However I can't express how much I enjoyed this book
