There are a few anachronisms and grammatical errors. But, if you enjoy a feminist-in-the-making, star-crossed romance, or prevailing over adversity, ignore these, and enjoy Nora Broussard Greenwood's story. I kept turning the pages to see how she resolved issues and the final outcome.
One should know that there are some explicit "adult" passages in the book. Tastefully done, though, and again the actions of the characters in those passages felt true for the characters.
I enjoyed reading the book so much that I just had to get the follow-in book, Solo Vietnam, but that is another review!
Soon Nora discovers that her marriage is to be anything but a happy, joyous union. As her family grows she struggles with the man she is married to and suffers his abuse. She decides to do something for herself and takes flying lessons. Here is where Nora truly learns the meaning of love.
Her life takes unimaginable turns that would have destroyed the spirit of most people, but Nora isn't most people. She takes control and creates a future for herself and her children in such a way that it leaves you in awe. The end of this book left me wanting so much more. I cannot wait for the planned sequel.
Read it, you won't be sorry.
