A Distant Melody

WELCOME to the Lit Fuse Blog Tour for A DISTANT MELODY by Sarah Sundin.

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 mutual friend's 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.

About the Author:

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.

Pattie's Thoughts:

I have a new favorite author. This book is incredible. It is a chunkster--over 400 pages long--but it is so engrossing! I adore Allie and Walt, and their relationship. They are dynamic characters in one of the most dramatic times of history, and their story sings (yes, purposefully punny here) on every page of A Distant Melody.

As a military spouse with a move coming up, I am more purposeful about books I choose to keep. A Distant Melody is staying in my library for sure.

Special thanks to Revell/Baker Publishing and the gals at Lit Fuse
