A Distant Melody
The year is 1942.
Allie Miller is leaving for a week to attend her good friend, Betty Jamison’s wedding. While on the train ride, Allie meets Lt. Walter Novak. Lt. Novak is a fighter pilot. Instantly, Lt. Novak feels something for Allie. What he doesn’t know is that Allie has a boyfriend back home. His name is J. Baxter Hicks. Allie's parents are already planning their wedding, though Baxter hasn’t proposed to Allie yet.
Allie and Walter develop a friendship that lasts even when Allie goes back home. Of course it starts to blossom into something more. Now Allie has to make a choice whether to continue her friendship with Walter and risk everything that was planned for her future.
A Distant Melody is the debut novel from author, Sarah Sundin. It is also book one in the Wings of Glory series. I instantly was captivated by this book and Allie and Lt. Novak. This book transported me back in time. This story is a classic love story but with deeper meaning than…girl meets boy…girl falls in love with boy…girl gets married. It has a powerful message as well. It was nice to see that Allie and Walter stuck to their beliefs and put their friendship as well as relationship in God’s hands. Author, Sarah Sundin has definitely made a name with A Distant Melody. I am flying high wanting for the next book in this series.
