A Distant Melody (Wings of Glory Book #1)

Book 1, Wings of Glory - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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?
A Distant Melody is the first book in the WINGS OF GLORY series, which follows the three Novak brothers, B-17 bomber pilots with the US Eighth Air Force stationed in England during World War II.

Took me to another time

Wonderful characters and well written. Already read her second and onto her third book. Keep them coming!

A Distant Melody

I fell in love with the characters and didn't want to put the book down. The flow of the story was gripping and uplifting as well as intriguing. A book I highly recommend to any who enjoy a good, clean read. Wish I could have rated it higher than a five star.


This book is so touching and wonderful. I stayed up late reading it and finally finished. The characters are very endearing and this is a great first novel. If you like romance novels or Nicholas sparks movies/books, then you will love a distant melody. Read it!
