A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin (Review)





Will a chance meeting in a time of war change her life forever?




Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love. While Allie has nearly resigned herself to that fate, 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 and 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?




Book 1 in the Wings of Glory series, A Distant Melody is an exciting and tender story of love, courage, and sacrifice during World War II.


My Review:
I had this post set to this date and I did not even realize it was today and my review was not with it. Yikes! I really did like this book. I thought the characters and plot were interesting. The time period was intriguing and it is hard to believe it was so long ago now.The only thing that bothered me was the way Allie's parents treated her. Can they really be that heart less? It really bothered me even though I know its fiction. I look forward to learning more about these characters in the next book in the series. Recommended. :)

Not sure this is my cup of tea, but I'm intrigued by the WWII angle. I hope it's okay that I linked to your review on the Book Reviews: WWII page on War Through the Generations.
