review: A Distant Melody

by Sarah Sundin

Allie Miller has resigned herself to the fact that the man who will soon propose to her thinks her as dull as her beautiful mother does. But given the fact that Baxter is her father's right hand man in the family business, and both of her parents are thrilled with the match, she is willing to go through with her part to make their future work.

But before the fateful event happens, Allie boards a train to travel to her best friend's wedding, and en route meets Lt. Walter Nowak, a pilot taking his last furlough before being shipped overseas to fight in World War II. Although Walt has always been tongue-tied and awkward around girls, for some reason, he is able to to talk to Allie, and the two of them begin a friendship that will span the miles that the war will force between them.

A Distant Melody is a beautifully written book that was a pleasure to read. I read the 400+ pages far faster than I had anticipated, because I simply didn't want to put the book down. It's also one that I know i will read again.

Had I not read on the back of the book that this was Sarah Sundin's debut novel, I never would have believed it. As far as I am concerned, book two of this Wings of Glory series cannot arrive soon enough.
