By Anne Greene
At a time where women were venturing it the realm of men, Mandy McCabe dares to enter the skies. World War II has come and Mandy answers the call of service for her country by being a test pilot of repaired planes for the WASP program.
But flying the skies is the least of Mandy's worries as she deals with opposition in her everyday life as some feel the dangers and stresses that these women face is too much to ask of them. Mandy is also dealing with issues from her past - a past that she is determined to leave forever behind her.
With determination and her faith Mandy faces the challenges that this changing turbulent world at war brings her way.
The narrator Linda LongCrane has a laid-back narration style that fits with the southern roots that Mandy calls her own. But one can't accuse Mandy of having a laid-back attitude with her go-get-em work ethic. War changes everything and Mandy is determine that for her it will be a change for the better.
Those who enjoy a good period piece set in the turbulent years of WWII will enjoy this historical work from Anne Greene.
