A Distant Melody Blog Tour!

About 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.

Sarah Sundin is an on-call hospital pharmacist and holds a BS in chemistry from UCLA and a doctorate in pharmacy from UC San Francisco. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children. This is her first novel.

I absolutely adore this book and am greatly looking forward to the next two. The whole WWII era is fascinating and Sarah Sundin has made it come alive. The people are very normal who get in real situations. For once the hero and heroine are plain looking. No beautiful, gorgeous models here. They're just normal people. Besides the doing a fabulous job making one feel like one is a part of this era with the different descriptions, the author has some valuable lessons that should make all Christians stop and think about their own lives.
