A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin - full review coming soon!

Currently Revell Books is celebrating the release of the first novel in Sarah Sundin's World War II trilogy Wings of Glory, A Distant Melody. Since I am still, apparently, digging myself out of the hole that is being constantly behind on one's blog tours, I'm sadly not ready with a full review. I can tell you, though, if you're a fan of the World War II time period and rich, meaty historicals, you're going to love Sarah's debut! I can't wait to share my full review with you. Till then, here's a bit about the book:

Will a chance meeting in a time of war change her life forever?

Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love. While Allie has nearly resigned herself to that fate, 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 and 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?

Book 1 in the Wings of Glory series, A Distant Melody is an exciting and tender story of love, courage, and sacrifice during World War II.

You can learn more about Sarah Sundin and her books at her website.
You can also check out Sarah's blog and where she's constantly sharing some fact about WWII history.

Full review coming soon - I promise! :)
