A Distant Melody

By Sarah Sundin


During World War II, Lt. Walter Novak flies a B-17 bomber in battles over Nazi-occupied Europe, while Allie Miller serves in the Red Cross against the wishes of her wealthy parents and controlling fiancé in California. Walt and Allie meet at a wedding and begin a correspondence. 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 three brothers who fly B-17 bombers with the U.S. Eighth Air Force based in England.

Book Takeaway:

I hope readers will learn from my characters' mistakes - to learn the importance of honesty and obeying the Lord no matter the cost. In addition, I pray women will see that they don’t have to be beautiful to find true love.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote this novel to honor those who served in World War II, both in combat and on the Home Front.


"I found this book to be amazing! I read it in two days. The pages came alive and I felt I was taken back to that place and time. I highly recommend this Historical Romance Novel."

"Great book. Bought Sunday, finished Tuesday. Plenty of action to complement the romance. Characters and plot that draw me in and immerse me right in the middle of WWII."
