    One of my favorite novels ever Here’s what I liked about it ■It’s a love story but it’s not sicky sweet ■It’s set during World War 2 so I think military wivesgirlfriends of any generation will be able to relate to some part of the heroine’s journey ■It’s very thoroughly researched I was so impressed with the level of detail in the descriptions of the Flying Fortress B 17s as well as life back home in California during the war But don’t worry it’s not dull it’s fascinating ■The characters grow and develop throughout the book they are not flat characters by any stretch They experience tough times and they make a few poor decisions so they are fallable approachable and easy to relate to But they’re also very very loveable ■The dialogue is perhaps the best I’ve ever read in a love story It’s not cheesy It’s actually witty realistic and interesting Every line mattered You can’t say that about every novel ■There is resolution at the end of the book I was afraid there wouldn’t be when I noticed this is the first in a series I was worried I’d get to the end and still be left hanging But thankfully the reader is definitely rewarded for getting to the last page but there is much story to be told so I’m looking forward to the seuel

    Read Second TimeJUST AS GOOD AS BEFORE Allie Walt 3 And I'm reading it knowing about coughs certain characters coughs and it makes it sooo much better and the message and the history and the era AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHEven creeped out by Baxter though shivers Creepy scary awful guy Read First TimeSimply fantastic story I can’t get over it I just loved it to death Now time to explain why A Distant Melody is now among my favorite novels ever Not that I’ll be able to describe it in words of course You’ll just have to read the book and join my shrill fangirl shrieking dances happilyNow I just expected to read another sweet light historical romance with a tiny bit of Christian faith Was I ever surprised The Christian message is strong REALLY strong Yet it’s not preachy It’s amazing Sundin didn’t bleach the truth; she handled it straightforwardly never wincing at the way things areThe romance adorable I loved how although Walt and Allie were physically attracted to each other healthily; on that later neither of them were described as handsomebeautiful uite interesting They really had a solid friendship before they moved on to romance They depended on each other they knew each other they were awesome together grins I’m just so happy thinking about this book right nowBefore I go any farther a bit about the contentI felt like I had to content rate this 35 although it just didn’t feel unclean It was a very sweet book and everything that was wrong even little white liesnot telling the whole true being a lie was dealt with exactly as it should be and wow Just wowWalt was attracted to Allie and visa versa I think; I don’t remember exactly but he wasn’t gawking at her all the time; he was healthily attracted to her I’d say That’s really the first time I’ve seen that in a book I was like “Wow that’s cool” A few kisses but nothing that made me suirmAlso there’s some gossip about Baxter that he might be homosexual that is never exactly disproved though Allie is sure it’s not true; it’s just gossip No language Some violence; nothing really graphic but it might disturb the weak hearted It’s war guys People die Get over it Back to the actual storyTime to talk about characters You know how I feel about characters guys I love ’em I adore ’em But I rarely find characters that satisfy my needs These guys did Walt Allie Frank and every other character in this book was amazing They were very real people none of them completely perfect none of them except Baxter maybe completely evilI especially felt bad for Allie I think it’s best if you read this book not knowing a ton about it it’s one of those books that unfolds best if you don’t know a ton about it when you start reading but I emphasized with her every step of the wayAnd Walt I don’t really have a problem with lying not even “little white” ones but this still touched me I do stretch the truth sometimes I guess come to think of it but I’m a storyteller What do you expect?And there I am making excuses for myself againMore than anything this is a story of character growth – growth in personality growth toward God etc Not that the romance wasn’t fantastic but the character growth was the coolest partIf you don’t like character based stories you’re an idiot that’s okay This is a fantastic adventure story We spend a lot of time in England flying over France almost dying etc I was so proud of knowing a bit about bombers due to a story my friend wrote I was all like “I don’t need to read this paragraph describing the plane I already know what it looks like HA”Overall I would recommend this book to any teenadult who loves WW2 romance adventure the ’40s in general research for both the ’40s as an era and WW2 was amazing by the way Sundin captured the ’40s bombers action a strong Christian message that will change the way you think touching stories occasionally funny stories sweet stories or just trusts me to know a good book when I read itOriginally posted on my blog Reveries ReviewsKellyn Roth Reveries Reviews

    475 stars English Ebook antisipation trillend a song in her heart but the tune felt thin a single line of melody with no harmony to make it sonate Two people meet at a wedding Their world could not be apart They fall in love but she is going to get married to someone else and he is of to war How will this end? I loved this read It took me to a time where it counted what you say and do Honnor and love A good combi for me Nah Gotta get used to the could B 17s fly at over Twente thousand feet Minus Twenty degrees up there sometimes colder 🌺🦋🌺

    When I began this book I thought it might get three stars Halfway through it got bumped up to four That's why you read the whole book it was definitely a five star book for me I had two minor complaints the beginning and the end The beginning felt too modern for me with the talk of boyfriends attraction etc I'm not sure why but it lost that feel uickly Then there was the end It was fine but a little cliché and unrealistic I don't know how often people jump of trains but it's pretty stupid and dangerous But it made me not put down the book so I guess it was success?Thing I liked everything? Okay I'll be specific starting with Walt First Walt is an engineer That's great since mechanical engineers are the best He had a great balance of teasing and seriousness I think many authors think that to be funny their heroes need to turn every serious situation into a laughing one It was easy not to do that because his and Allie's main communication was through letters Then view spoiler after Frank died hide spoiler

    California England 1942I would have given this book an unhesitant 5 star rating if it hadn't been for the extremely frustrating incredibly maddening last uarter of the story which left me annoyed and rolling my eyes and very disappointed to have such a beautiful book slightly marred by miscommunication problems and childishness But aside from that I loved this book to pieces it was charming and romantic I loved all the '40s references and Allie's clothing I am definitely making that dress with the appliuéd lily going up the side and blooming near the shoulder Sounds sooooo pretty The battle parts were also very exciting since the hero was a B 17 pilot and I was kept on the edge of my seat during all the air battles and it was incredibly suspenseful and just plain cool Everything was described so well it was like watching a movieBuddy read with Maria D

    A chance encounter during her best friend’s wedding is sufficient to revolutionize Allie Miller’s life Why does she have a feeling that the charming pilot Walter Novak is able to understand her than anyone else in the world? What would her boyfriend think if he knew that she feels something special for this young man that she has known only for some days? Accepting to write him some letters to cheer him up during the war may be the worst decision of her life Or maybe the best?Sarah Sundin’s characters have something special that let the readers empathize with their lives Sometimes we agree with their thoughts sometimes with their choices and actions other times we share their beliefs This is enough to make us feel close to fictional people that maybe are completely different from us Personally it happened with each book I have read so far by her With Every Letter On Distant Shores In Perfect Time and “A Distant Melody” is not an exceptionWalt and Allie are adorable In the first chapters the author describes how they meet how their friendship begins and the natural attraction that both show for each other Just a few pages were enough for me to fall in love with their story Over a span of a week both find themselves feeling some emotions they never would have expected and both find in the other person a trusted friend that perfectly knows the fears and wishes of the other one because everything in their lives seems to correspond like the pieces of a puzzle I would have preferred that they speak openly towards the end of the book there are misunderstandings galore but despite this I think they are one of the sweetest couples I have ever metOne of the aspects I love the most in Sundin’s prose is her ability to write romantic scenes that far from being sappy and silly go straight to the heart of those who read and they find themselves sighing like fools because of the characters’ experiences and the words they exchange Instead I found that the war descriptions were occasionally a little heavy and if on one hand they were useful to make me understand what happened during a fighting with military aircraft on the other they bored me a bit I was interested in seeing if Allie and Walt could overcome their problems Yes my romantic side prevailed over the one usually fascinated by history P“A Distant Melody” is a touching book that contains an important religious message It is an exciting novel that narrates a very sad time period of our history but that becomes lighter thanks to the descriptions of some young couples’ feelings I cannot wait to read the other Novak brothers’ storiesBuddy read with Anne Thank you darling ;

    Personally I did not like the writing style There was a lot of shallow events that were created to bring across a point and it really felt like a junk food book Not healthy no depth and just honestly leaves you feeling a little sick This is my personal opinion and I don't agree with the author about her standings as a Christian The main point in the book was largely focused on disobeying her parents because they wanted her to marry Baxter and Walter's habit of lying And I do agree that she should not marry Baxter because he was not a Christian but I did not like the emphasis that was placed on disobedience to parents I probably won't be reading any books by this author just because of her standings on Christianity that I found all throughout the book really hurt me as a reader Again personal opinion so I will not be recommending this book to anyone but if you like it good for you D

    sigh so so so sweet The Good PlotI've seen a lot of reviews for this book and they were all glowing so I went in with high expectations and this book certainly met them Plot wise the book was really good and there was a lot of action to keep me immersed and interested the entire way Plus with the writing I was completely drawn into the book and it felt like I really was in the 1940's I could also tell that Mrs Sundin did her research 'cause there was a whole lot of historical info put into this book but it was done well and didn't feel overwhelming Romance Just let it be known that Walt and Allie are absolutely adorable Their romance felt natural and it certainly wasn't love at first sight which I appreciated A warning though There was a lot of drama and misunderstandings that occurred between them because they just wouldn't talk about their feelings to each other Honestly I don't think I've ever met a couple that I adored so much and yet wanted to throttle so much either At least I can say that they definitely made me feel something ; But that aside I think their romance was really the highlight of the book and I loved reading all the letters they wrote to each other As individual characters they both impressed me in many ways Walt because he was such an open and faithful guy even though his little white lies tended to make life complicated for him And Allie was a strong leading lady who learned to follow what God wanted her to do not her parents As a side note can I just say that Baxter is honestly one of the worst characters ever? Honestly how her parents thought he was the perfect guy for her is beyond me Anyways point is they were both great characters and I was totally rooting for them the entire story Side charactersThe side characters were all really well developed and they made me laugh and smile the entire book view spoiler But when Frank died I was heartbroken I was expecting it because I just know that authors love killing off the good characters At first Mrs Sundin led me to believe nothing would really happen to Frank and then she hit me with it That was painful especially since Frank was my favorite And then when Jim also died my heart broke I can tell you honestly that a few tears came when that happened hide spoiler
