Book Review: A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin

"Walt followed his father and retrieved his duffel. Allie Miller. Yeah, Betty talked about her, but Betty talked too much about too many people. Now he wished he'd paid attention. For instance, did Allie Miller have a boyfriend? How come the most crucial detail was the hardest to recall? Oh well, if she had a boyfriend, he'd find out soon enough.

Walt and his father joined the women on the platform, and Walt grinned at the young lady beside him. He'd looked forward to this furlough for months - his family, his friends, and all the fruit he could eat.

But now it could be the best week of his life." A Distant Melody, pp. 23-24.

Arranged marriages are out of style during World War II, unless your name is Allegra "Allie" Miller. Allie will do anything to please her parents, and earn their approval, but can she really give sacrifice her happiness and hopes of love just to obey them? She thought she was resigned to her fate, until she met fly-boy, Lt. Walter Novak. Their short friendship, and following correspondence awakens longings that Allie must control. After all, can she really choose between the love of a man and the love of her family.

A Distant Melody is the first book in the "Wings of Glory" series. It takes a closer look at what it means to sacrifice and obey God. It also looks at the consequences of deception. I love the characters that Sarah Sundin brought to live through the pages of this touching romance. I'm looking forward to reading the second novel in this series!
