Review: A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin

This WW2 novel will have your heart breaking as it follows Alli, who struggles to obtain her parents' approval, and Walt, a Air Force pilot, on their incredible and bumpy road to love. But when Alli's parents wish for her to marry Baxter, even threaten to disown her over the issue, it may be a bump to big to bounce over.

I'm giving this awesome romance 5 stars!

1: This is the first book I've ever read by this author, and I will tell you straight up, it won't be the last. The incredible WW2 research and detail have you soaring back to the 40s every time you open it up!

2: As someone who loves music, I found the references scattered throughout delightful. I laughed, truly laughed, when Allegra found out Cressie's name.

3: I believe this book probably is a pretty accurate detailing of what it's like to be a Christian in the military, having to stand strong when everyone around you is, well, not. Like I said, or meant to say if I didn't, the accuracy of this book, historically and otherwise, is amazing!

4: I loved the strong characters. I felt that even people with only one line made an impact on the lives of Alli and Walt. And I rather liked Cracker's turn-around. And don't get me started on how glad I was to see Mrs. Novak take to Alli.

5: Honestly, I didn't even read the back. I saw the cover, and the author (even though I've never read any by her before) and said, that's the one! I love the cover guys!

Well, looks like I'm hooked for life!


  1. Thank you for the lovely review, Erica! And for taking a chance on a new author. I'm so glad you enjoyed Walt & Allie's story!
