Sarah Sundin joins us today, and I'm always so pleased to welcome her to the show. Along with talking about her new novel, Embers in the London Sky, we chat about the history of the BBC, refugees in Britain during the war, the cat who makes an appearance in the story, and her travel bucket list. Patrons get to hear about the pets who rule her roost.
Embers in the London Sky by Sarah Sundin

As the German army invades the Netherlands in 1940, Aleida van der Zee Martens escapes to London to wait out the Occupation. Separated from her three-year-old son, Theo, in the process, the young widow desperately searches for her little boy even as she works for an agency responsible for evacuating children to the countryside.
When German bombs set London ablaze, BBC radio correspondent Hugh Collingwood reports on the Blitz, eager to boost morale while walking the fine line between truth and censorship. But the Germans are not the only ones Londoners have to fear as a series of murders flame up amid the ashes.
The deaths hit close to home for Hugh, and Aleida needs his help to locate her missing son. As they work together, they grow closer and closer, both to each other and the answers they seek. But with bombs falling and continued killings, they may be running out of time.

Although I came from a home wallpapered in books,

I only briefly envisioned myself as a writer. Instead, I studied chemistry in college and earned my doctorate in pharmacy. Not until I was a young mother did I start writing seriously.

Family tales drew me to the World War II era.
My grandfather, Frederick Stewart, served as a pharmacist’s mate (medic) in the US Navy, and my great-uncle, Roderick Stewart, flew a B-17 Flying Fortress in Australia and England—and flew into Pearl Harbor during the attack.

My grandfather, Frederick Stewart, at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, April 1944.

My novels explore the drama, daring, and romance of the World War II era. My most recent novel, Embers in the London Sky, received starred reviews from Booklist and Library Journal. The Sound of Light was a 2023 Christy Award finalist, received starred reviews from Booklist and Library Journal, and is a bestseller. The bestselling Until Leaves Fall in Paris received the 2022 Christy Award and was a semi-finalist for the Carol Award. When Twilight Breaks and The Land Beneath Us were Christy Award finalists, and The Sky Above Us won the 2020 Carol Award.

When I’m not writing…
my husband and I enjoy traveling and taking our two rescue dogs for lengthy walks. I teach Sunday school and women’s Bible studies, and I speak to community, church, and writers’ groups. I also serve as co-director for the West Coast Christian Writers Conference. Visit my speaking page for more information.

Oh, and I also had the privilege of flying in a B-17 Flying Fortress! I blogged about this incredible experience here.
