Virginia C. reviewed Point of Departure (Women of Glory, Bk 4) (That Special Woman!) (Silhouette Special Edition, No 853) on
A woman in uniform had to be tough. But to face down a naval commander intent on harassing her out of the ranks, Lt. Callie Donovan needed more than moxie. She needed a miracle...
Top gin Ty Ballard, assigned to represent Callie in a military board of inquiry, was no miracle worker. But having seen the stark vulnerability shadowing Callie's azure eyes-and knowing it had been put there by predatory jet jocks just like him-he prayed he'd prove man enough to stand by this brave, beautiful woman in blue.
While this was ultimately a good book, and a fitting finish to the Women of Glory series, it took me a while to warm up to Lt. Callie Donovan. Granted, she had been through a very tough time, but initially she was too weak, too willing to play the victim. Someone with a career in the military has to be made of sterner stuff than she was appearing. Eventually, Top Gun Ty Ballard was able to see that she didn't need to be a victim anymore, and the ending was very good, fitting of the women who serve our country in the military.
