Book Description: 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: Seems like this is the year for WWII novels. My fave war era is the Civil War . . . I like the big hoop skirts, plantations, and southern men. Yet the moment I started this book I was hooked. Sarah wrote such believable characters, with a strong storyline! I loved the letter writing! It created such suspense and romance throughout the entire book. I highly recommend this book if your a historical romance fan. I give it a lighthouse and shine a light on it for pointing a path to God.
