Summary

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?

Favorite so far!

This is the third book by Sarah Sundin I’ve listened to. First being “With Every Letter”, and second “When Tides Turn”. And “A Distant Melody” is my favorite so far. It had me I laughing out loud, holding my breath, and crying at times. I love the era of these stories. That being said, while the settings and certain circumstance may be in a different time period and some aspects unrelatable, the emotions, mistakes, hopes, sorrows and joys of Sarah Sundin’s characters are very relatable and lovely to listen to.

I definitely recommend this Audiobook!
P.s. the Narrator did a great job!

Sooo good!

The story was delightful and kept my interest all the way to the end. The end was satisfying. The narrator was excellent.

Kept my Interest Though Predictable

While I definitely like historical fiction, this story focused a lot more on God and scripture than many.

if that works for you don't hesitate to reach for this audiobook.

Wonderful book to escape in.

I thoroughly love Sarah Sundin. I love being whisked away to an era in some ways similar to now- strange and trying times. The book helped remind me COVID will come to an end much like the war and there is good in the midst of hard times. Loved listening to the book while commuting to work and putting the baby to bed.

Great WWII story. Performance was well done.

I have enjoyed all of Sarah Sundin's books and am now reveling in being able to listen to them, as well.
