Publisher's Description

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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sarah Sundin
Located in: Antioch, CA
Submitted: January 15, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I live in northern California with my husband, three, children, an antisocial cat, and an overly social yellow lab. I work on-call as a hospital pharmacist and teach Sunday school and women's Bible studies. A Distant Melody is my first novel.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The premise for this story rose from a "what if" question raised in another project I was working on - which only worked in a historical setting. I watched a History Channel special on the US Eighth Air Force based in England during World War II, and I was impressed with what those men endured for our freedom. Since my great-uncle flew a B-17 bomber with the Eighth Air Force, I had access to his stories and letters - and I had my link.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope readers will gain an appreciation for what people went through during World War II, both in combat and on the Home Front. I also hope they'll learn from my characters' mistakes - to understand the importance of honesty and of obeying the Lord. And I hope young women will realize you don't have to be beautiful to find true love.
