Shining a light on a little-known piece of history The Flight Girls is a sweeping portrayal of women’s fearlessness, love, and the power of friendship to make us soar.
1941. Audrey Coltrane has always wanted to fly. It’s why she implored her father to teach her at the little airfield back home in Texas. It’s why she signed up to train military pilots in Hawaii when the war in Europe began. And it’s why she insists she is not interested in any dream-derailing romantic involvements, even with the disarming Lieutenant James Hart, who fast becomes a friend as treasured as the women she flies with. Then one fateful day, she gets caught in the air over Pearl Harbor just as the bombs begin to fall, and suddenly, nowhere feels safe.
To make everything she’s lost count for something, Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. The bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face war, and—when James goes missing in action—give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight not only for her country, but for the love she holds so dear.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Noelle Salazar’s meticulously researched historical novel tells the true story of World War II’s Women Airforce Service Pilots—WASPs, for short—who took over U.S. pilots’ jobs while they were fighting overseas. The book’s heroine, Audrey, is a determined young woman from Texas, and we follow her as she goes through training, flies warplanes across the country, and makes and loses friends along the way. Narrator Xe Sands’ excellent pacing makes the audiobook a riveting listen, and her richly detailed voices give Salazar’s gutsy, courageous women—who range from adventurous moms to glamorous daredevils—unforgettable personality. This inspiring audiobook celebrates female friendship and women who aren’t afraid to break the mold.
Beautiful romance novel

Another Romance Novel
Starts out as a good novel until about a third of the way through — then you realize you’ve invested too much time on just another silly romance novel.
