A Distant Melody

A Distant Melody is the debut novel for Sarah Sundin and I am already hooked. She sets her first novel in WWII with story of love and sacrifice.

The romance in this book tears at your heartstrings. They are being kept apart, but meant to be together. This is a great story that will capture you from the very beginning.

Two people who never feel they will find the love they have always dreamed of end up finding each other. I loved this book!

Here is a little summary of the book:
Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love.

Lt. Walter Novak--fearless in the cockpit but hopeless with women--takes his last furlough at home in California before being shipped overseas. Walt and Allie meet at a wedding and their love of music draws them together, prompting them to begin a correspondence that will change their lives.

As letters fly between Walt's muddy bomber base in England and Allie's mansion in an orange grove, their friendship binds them together. But can they untangle the secrets, commitments, and expectations that keep them apart?

A Distant Melody is the first book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.
