A Distant Melody

By: Sarah Sundin

This is book one in the Wings of Glory series and it is centered around WWII. In this story Allie is set to marry Baxter, her parents choice of husband, but when she is invited to her friend Betty's wedding her resolve changes. It is during this week of freedom away from her parents that she meets Walt Novak. Walt is a pilot in the Army Air force and this is his last furlough before he heads of to join the fight. During this time these two begin to grow close in friendship and realize just how much they have in common. When it is time for them to part they agree to write to each other.

I really enjoyed this story because it really brings home just how out of control lies can become. It shows how important it is to tell the truth no matter the circumstances. There was a lot of reference to scripture and staying true to God an what he leading you to do even if you don't understand it at the time. It can truly be scary to drop everything and trust in the Lord to handle it but that what it means to have faith. As it says in the scripture obedience is better than sacrifice to the Lord.
