Inspired by true events, a breathtaking WWII historical novel about the brave American women who trained the British Royal Air Force, by New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath.
1941. A talented flier, Jessie Lovelace yearns for a career in aviation. When the civilian flight school in her small Texas town begins to clandestinely train British pilots for the RAF, she fights to become an instructor. But the task isn't without its perils of near-misses and death. Faced with the weight of her responsibilities, she finds solace with a British officer who knows firsthand the heavy price paid in war . . . until he returns to the battles he never truly left behind.
Rhonda Monroe might not be skilled in the air but can give a trainee a wild ride in a flight simulator. Fearing little, she dares to jeopardize everything for a forbidden relationship with a charismatic airman...
Innocent and fun-loving Kitty Lovelace, Jessie's younger sister, adores dancing with these charming newcomers, realizing too late the risks they pose to her heart.
As the war intensifies and America becomes involved, the Girls of Flight City do their part to bring a victorious end to the conflict, pouring all their energy into preparing the young cadets to take to the skies and defeat the dangers that await. And lives from both sides of the Atlantic will be forever changed by love and loss...

I really enjoyed that this was a different aspect of the war, based on true events about the brave American women (“the Girls of Flight City”) who trained the British Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots who were training and stationed in Texas during WWII. Meeting all the characters, the heroine Jessie who has always dreamed of a career in aviation herself and is a talented flier who has to fight for a job in training, Jessie’s younger sister Kitty, their brother’s letters, the heartbreaks, the love, the loss, the joy. I just was so invested in the entire journey and story!
war, the British needed a place to train pilots for their Royal Air Force (RAF). When officers and cadets arrive in Texas they are welcomed into the community, as if they were at home. The story has compelling characters, exciting action and romance
between the local girls and the cadets and officers. especially loved Kitty who at 16, learns about all the joys and sorrows of life and love with a world at war. And Jessie, as an experienced pilot and woman, who
must prove herself capable in a man's world, in order to become an instructor to the cadets. This fabulous story gives you a look behind the scenes of a nation
at war, and teaches not only some history of the time, but perspective on the importance of community, particularly during unsettled times.
