A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin

A Distant Melody
by Sarah Sundin

Published: March 2010
Genre: Christian, Romance, WWII
Paperback: 422 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
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.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): oranges
I really enjoyed this sentimental journey of faith, heartache, hope and love. The story also incorporates references to music of times.
