Wings: A Novel of World War II Flygirls A debut novel based on the true World War II story of America's first female military pilots.

Sally Ketchum comes from dirt-poor farm folk. She has little chance of bettering her life until a mysterious barnstormer named Tex teaches her to fly—and to dare to love. But Tex dies in a freak accident, and Sally must make her own way in the world. She enrolls in the U.S. military’s WASP program. At the special school known as Avenger, she learns to fly the biggest, fastest, meanest planes the military has to offer. She also reluctantly becomes involved with Beau Bayard, a flight instructor and aspiring writer, who seems to offer her everything she could want. Yet many people see no place for a “skirt” in the cockpit, and Sally soon finds herself pitted against a high-powered Washington lawyer who wants to close down Avenger once and for all.
