A WOMAN'S WORLD BEST NEW BOK

I read well into the night, unable to stop. The book is unputdownable.--Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Heart-breaking, validating, exciting.--Hypable

Rich historical detail.this saga has it all.--Woman's World

Shining a light on a little-known piece of history The Flight Girls is a sweeping portrayal of women's fearlessness, love, and the power of friendship to make us soar.

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 Read More chevron_right

   Good Book
Although some reviewers did not like this because it wasn 't authentic, I enjoyed it very much. The story of WWII and the beginnings of our WASP and women's AF Academy. Three cheers for a good novel that had me laughing, crying and happy at the end!

   Well done!! Amazing novel on WWII female pilots
The book loved the book! Both heart warming and heart rending at the same time... WWII historical details and an amazing story told poignantly. Captures the reader immediately, portraying the courageous civilian pilots of Pearl Harbor before the Pearl Harbor to postwar.

   A wonderful look at history
A great look at American history, which seems to have slipped under the rug. In modern America, young women often take the freedom and rights we have now for granted.

   It was a wonderful read!
Loved the whole story of the women flyers! Of course, they can equal men! The story did not bombard the women with as much male machismo as I am sure they really suffered. But, you go, Girl! Love relationships did get a little boring.

Nice to read about a subject that is not often told.

   Great Read
A thousand authors would have to make as many books on this subject! Most people have no idea what the women did in that era and sacrificed in many cases for this blessed country!

   When I learned to Fly my teacher was a WASP and she was
A fabulous true story of the women aviators known as the Wasps during WWII, who flies in the military and helped the men pilots fly all the airplanes to various places and were part of the American Air Force and were extremely brave.

   90% romance 10% history
2 stars is REALLY generous to this this poorly written attempt at historical fiction. It is really a romance novel with a very little bit of history as a background. 90% of the mawkish romance, 10% at most history.

   Loved it!
A historical change of great fiction. Based on true stories of WASP, I enjoyed this book greatly as an air force veteran. However, in the 1940s, did people really use Ms. rather than Miss or Mrs. I did not think that it started until the 1970 women's movement. And then there was the mention of twirling her diamond earrings. I'm pretty sure that they would have worn screw earrings or clip-on earrings. Perhaps you will find some small things there. But I took it certainly out of the moment.
