My Book Cover!

A Distant Melody by Sarah SundinIt’s official! Here’s the cover for my first novel. If you received my newsletter last week, you may notice Allie’s suit is now red.

A Distant Melody will be released by Revell in March 2010 and is now featured on their website at

Here’s a brief summary of the story: Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie Miller 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.

So many of you have lavished me with prayer and encouragement, critique and advice, for which I am deeply grateful. The name on the cover is almost a lie – none of this could have happened without the support and love (sometimes in the “tough love” category) of my family, friends, and critique partners. Thank you all! I love you!
