They wanted to soar: The Flight Girls

A Novel

by Noelle Salazar

#TheFlightGirls #NetGalley

The Flight Girls stands out within a popular sub genre of stories about women during war time. This is a good historical fiction novel that centers on the Women’s Air Force Service Pilots Program. The protagonist is Audrey Coltrane. She always wanted to be a pilot and the war gives her this opportunity.

Pearl Harbor was a catastrophic event for the country and a frightening time for Audrey. Readers will be alongside her as she moves forward.

Audrey is very determined. Will this include her saying that she will be immune from romance? Will those she loves remain safe? And, how will the other women she meets help to sustain her? What exactly is the work that these women do? Turn the pages of this very readable novel to find out.

This book opens in Hawaii, also the setting for Sara Ackerman’s, The Code Breaker’s Secret. I recommend both.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
