this is one of those books that i cannot give away. it is about the women piolts during WWII and how they did not get the recognition they deserved. this book rec'd a bad review on Amazon that i think was undeserved. if you like historical book and strong women you will enjoy this book as much as i did.
This is a page turner about 4 young women who are a part of the WASP's (Woman Airforce Service Pilots) during WWII. Their love of flying makes them risk their lives, determined to win their wings in a man's world. The author, Janet Dailey, has a real gift to make you feel as though you are right there with them. The time she puts into research is evident in every page. A very good read!
This "felt" like non-fiction because of the subject matter, but was most likely a fictionalized version of the experiences of the women who participated in World War 2 as pilots who served in order to free up the men who went to fight. Their roles were just as dangerous, and they broke new ground for women of their day, creating a path for the modern woman to follow. I've read other books on the same subject, but this one brought it to life for me.
