Silver Wings Santiago Blue
During World War II there were few women pilots. None of them went overseas to fly in the war effort. Yet there were those female pilots who wanted to join the service and fly for their country. These women had a rough time getting themselves taken seriously. The military didn't support them, but they persevered.
This novel takes the true events and fictionalizes them. Four very different women come together to training in Texas determined to prove themselves and fly for their country. Perhaps not all of them came with altruistic intentions, yet the drive is there for each one.
Cappy, the military brat, is not sure she wants the restrictions of military life again. She knows how it affect her home life. Marty came from Detroit, determined to break out of her mold. And she wants to prove she is as special as her brother. Eden's rich background affects how she approaches the other women. Mary Lynn is the soft lady who every body likes.
Another "behind the scenes" World War II story is told well here. These are real women with depth and problems. It is a romance, yet it much more the story of the drive that anyone can have when faced with a special love. These women are going to fly. And they are going to fly the planes that men do. This is a great piece of true history presented in fiction.
