Not interested in any dream derailing romantic involvements even with the disarming Lieutenant James Hart who fast becomes a friend as treasured as the women she flies with Then one fateful day she gets caught in the air over Pearl Harbor just as the bombs begin to fall and suddenly nowhere feels safeTo make everything she's lost count for something Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. As soon as I saw the cover I knew I had to read this book I keep saying I need to lay off the World War 2 historical fiction for awhile but the chance to learn a bit about the WASPs Women Airforce Service Pilots was an opportunity I couldn t pass up Audrey Coltrane loves to fly planes and it s her dream to one day own an airfield back home in Texas It s 1941 and she is saving up money while training military pilots in Hawaii With that one goal taking up all of her focus she doesn t care to be anything than friends with the handsome and charming Lieutenant James Hart After the attack on Pearl Harbor Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots This is a story about friendship love loss determination and courageI m so pleased the author chose to write about the WASPs as it helps with giving the women the recognition they deserve for the contributions to the war effort While the characters in the book are fictional I do think the author captured the spirit of the women and what they endured as participants in the program I thought there was a nice balance of historical facts about the program and a solid fictional story about a woman determined to set her own path in life I highly recommend reading the Author s Note at the end as it provides good context for her writing process To me the sign of a good historical fiction book is after I m done reading I m motivated to learn even about the topic which was the case hereAudrey was an easy character to root for even though she suffered from Irresistible Woman syndrome She seemed to cast a spell over men but it didn t annoy me that much because she had a lot of good ualities including intelligence and confidence I loved the camaraderie among the women and how they did tend to look after one another This is a pretty uick read even though it s 350 pages There are some good emotional moments throughout the story and I recommend this one for fans of World War 2 historical fiction andor books that feature strong female characters Romance is certainly a part of the story but not the only thing going on so I think this book will appeal to many different readersI received a free advance copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
