A stunning story about the Women Airforce Service Pilots, whose courage during World War II turned ordinary women into extraordinary heroes
1941. Audrey Coltrane has always wanted to fly. It’s why she implored her father to teach her at the little airfield back home in Texas. It’s why she signed up to train military pilots in Hawaii when the war in Europe began. And it’s why she insists she is 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 safe.
To make everything she’s lost count for something, Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. The bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face war, and—especially when James goes missing in action—give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight for everything she holds dear.
Shining a light on a little-known piece of history, The Flight Girls is a sweeping portrayal of women’s fearlessness in the face of adversity, and the power of friendship to make us soar.
As the niece of two fighter pilots who lost their lives in war, I hade zero ideas that there were female pilots in WWII but then again, we do not study much, if any, American history in Canada. (We have enough to learn about our history, but less "theirs"). This was an amazing read for me - history, compelling characters and a well-written plot and a dash of romance that enthralled me from page one to end.
This is a fabulous book - I look forward to reading more of Miss Salazar's work: if this book is any indication, her works are stellar! This is also a perfect book club pick as one could discuss women's roles then and now and compare the two. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by Millennials on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩
