    Airplanes, Friendship, and Romance

    I really enjoyed reading this story about the lady pilots flying for the ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary). It was good to hear how women helped during the war shuttling airplanes to the bases for the male servicemen to fly. Not only did they prove to be as good pilots as the men, they could fly every different kind of aircraft. The friendship between the lady pilots was heartwarming. Not only did they have each other's back, the actually cared about the well being of their fellow pilots. Raine had wanted to fly an airplane from an early age, ever since her father took her to a flying circus and she was allowed to ride in an airplane. Against her mother's wishes, but with her father's blessing, and the help and encouragement from her two sisters, she learned to fly. The story not only covers how she learned to fly and got into the ATA, but the story of her family and her struggles to find her way as a woman pilot. The best part is the ATA and her friendship with the other women pilots. Their experiences in prejudice against women flying, their narrow misses in the airplanes, the drama of their lives and how they helped each other cope with the stress of war and of the job. The rigid training, the long hours flying, the thrill of the first solo flight. It was a wonderful story of triumph and fulfillment. There is also the story of her friends Doug, and Alec and the drama between the three of them. Both Doug and Alec spoke to her of their love for her. Would she choose Doug the older soft spoken friend or Alec the new cocky pilot she meets at a dance? The drama of Doug being shot down over enemy territory. The night with Alec in Windsor when the bomb just missed the theatre they were attending. So much action and drama. It in itself was a sweet love story in the midst of war. Molly has written another great book. This author is one of my favorite, I enjoy her books, and I am sure you will as well. I recommend you grab a copy of " A Sister's Courage" and start reading, you will be glad you did. My thanks to Molly Green, Avon Books UK, and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review an advance copy of the book.
