A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin blog Tour
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 touching story of sacrifice, love, loss, and courage, A Distant Melody takes readers into the middle of this harrowing tale. Well researched with believable characters and intriguing plots. Sarah Sundin knows her way around a historical novel and has the ability to make readers feel her characters emotions. A page turner that I could not put down. I will defiantly been on the look out for the rest Sarah Sundin's Wings of Glory series. This book should be on your to read list.
