“When World War II broke out, women served the war effort in different ways. While not officially a part of the military, over 1000 Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) served by training new male pilots and transporting planes and goods from base to base. When the war was over, the women went, officially unrecognized, back to their pre-war lives forever changed. The Flight Girls follows Audrey Coltrane, a fearless, skilled pilot, who dreams not of a husband, but of running the small airfield in her Texas hometown. Through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the sexist assumptions and treatment of female pilots, the loss of close friends, her unexpected attachment to Lt. James Hart, and the varied flight assignments, Audrey continues to learn and grow as a woman, a friend, a daughter, and most importantly, as a pilot. Become inspired to follow your dreams against all the odds by this forgotten piece of American history uncovered in this debut novel about the vital role of the Women Airforce Service Pilots during World War II.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
