  • Up in the Sky

    This is a story of the A.T.A. (Air Transport Auxiliary) girls. These brave women transported the airplanes between bases to the soldiers to fly during WWII. They flew in all types of conditions and in all types of planes. Many of them perished in the air but the other's kept flying. This is an important point in history, especially when during that time period in Britain women were not allowed those type of jobs. The war changed everything. As horrible as it was it did bring opportunities for women to broaden their horizons in a variety of different occupations. Dangerous and Daring these women served their country. Rosalie wanted to fly since she was ten years old and went up in a plane at a circus with her father. She leaves the farm and becomes an ATA pilot. Living in quarters at Mrs. May's they become close friends. I loved the characters, Rosalie, Caro, Zofia, Pamela, Snug, and Allen. Rosalie's family on the farm, Caro's dad Dr. Andrews and of course Mrs. May. You will follow with their flying adventures, their families, and their romances. The challenges, the heartaches and the love they all had for each other. It is a heartwarming story you will enjoy reading and remember for a long time. It is even more so knowing that many of the events and places are actual events that happened during WWII. The food, the clothing, the rationing and the sights and sounds of the War times. The book was very well written and a joy to read. I would recommend it.

  • WW II Women's Air Transport Auxiliary

    Rosalie Wright grew up at Lime Farm in Cambridgeshire a county in the East of England with her older brothers Will and Leslie. Rosalie’s ten when the flying circus visits town, her dad let her go for a joy ride, she loved it and she was determined to learn to fly. Her mum thought her daughters dream was a lot of nonsense and Rosalie didn't change her mind and earned her own money to pay for her flying lessons. Just as Rosalie’s about to turn 18, WW II begins and her dad suddenly passes away. Will and Leslie are exempt from fighting in the war, the country needs farmers to grow food and why can’t Rosalie be content helping on the farm like her brothers? Her mother isn’t happy about her plans to join the new Women’s Air Transport Auxiliary, Gladys is old fashioned and rather stubborn. They need women pilots to ferry planes around England’s and Scotland’s many RAF bases. Rosalie applies; she passes her training and is assigned to Hamble. Billeted with Mrs. May, Rosalie becomes best friends with her fellow housemates and ATA pilots Caroline Andrews and Zofia Pasek. I loved reading about the time the Rosalie, Caroline, Zofia and Mrs. May spend together in her little house. Rosalie and her fellow members of Women’s Air Transport Auxiliary face terrible discrimination from male pilots and ground crew. Rosalie meets two male pilots grumpy Snug Durrant and Alan Chersey he’s handsome and charming. Snug and Alan are very different and it becomes very obvious while reading the story who’s the nicer person. The war years continue the danger and stress increase. The women in the ATA fly all types of damaged and broken planes around the country; they never know what will happen during a flight and where they will end up staying the night. For the men and women the pressure and danger becomes extreme, all the pilots are so tired, nerves are frazzled and it takes its toll. I really enjoyed reading Glamour Girls; it’s a story about WW II, planes, flying, friendship, camaraderie, loss and unexpected love. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review; it’s brilliant and five stars from me.

  • Liked the story

    It amazes me still the number of new stories that keep coming about WW11. I liked this story line as I knew nothing of the ATA and the female pilots. Thank you.
