It’s just amazing to me that I have been blessed recently with amazing books to read. And LitFuse has done it again! They have provided me with a book that really spoke to me. It touched me, it made me look at my life and allowed me to find an area in my relationship with God that I can strive to make better.
A Distant Melody is the debut novel by Sarah Sundin. Not only is the it the debut novel, it is also the first book in a trilogy planned by Ms. Sundin called Wings Of Glory which will follow all the Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
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?
My take on the book:
Obviously I loved it! I just really felt this book. Yes it’s a love story, yes it’s set in war and those really add to the story. But I love really loved that it was about a woman finding her way through her relationship with God. Not only that but the man in her life is nothing but supportive telling her to go after the yearning that she is experiencing. She risks losing everything to follow the path God has laid for her knowing full well that He will take care of her.
