Sted 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 safeTo make everything she's lost count for something Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program The I picked up an ARC of this book at my job in a bookstore After 100 pages I declared a book divorce Yes it s that badFirst let s talk about the fact this book is so poorly edited it made me a former editor nearly cry No I didn t find piles of typos I found piles of anachronisms for a book about 1941 45Referring to women as Ms the term was not in broad popular use until 1968A male character keeps bumping his head against the headrest of a Jeep They barely had seats back then let alone headrests Women wear Victory Rolls big curls in their hair before Pearl Harbor after was OKAsserts that people watched the horrors of Pearl Harbor on television and I can t even begin to slam this statement hard enoughNumerous statements that the MC s mother was against her flying then states she encourages her to flyspends almost 2 full pages describing an apartment we ll never see again but only about 3 graphs on the devastation at Pearl HarborThis is lazy poorly researched poorly executed historical fiction that does the writer no favors nor the entire genre of women s fiction It has a nifty premise and should have been a good read even if the we ll just be friends even though we re madly attracted to each other premise is pretty sillyDo I sound angry I read a lot of independent authors work that runs rings around this book that the indies can t even get anyone to look at And then dreck like this gets put out It makes me tired

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 dearShining 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 I knew when I read the synopsis for The Flight Girls that I would enjoy this book immensely and I wasn t wrong My husband is an Air Force veteran with a private pilots license so it s safe to say that I ve spent plenty of my time in and around lots of planes over the past 25 years either as a passenger or watching them from the ground There s something magical about flying and Noelle Salazar manages to perfectly capture that in her debut novel even amidst the most harrowing of times WWIIAudrey Coltrane has always known exactly what she wants to fly planes and eventually own her own air hanger not be tied down with a husband and children like her mother expects When the Army begins hiring women pilots to train new male recruits how to fly she immediately takes the job and heads to Pearl Harbor There she makes friends especially with Lt James Hart one of the few people to understands her dreams It s also where she s caught up in the fateful attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941 while up in the skyAudrey s brave spirit continues to persevere through the war as she joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots WASP women trained by the army to ferry planes from one military base to another and test new and repaired aircraft before it was sent overseas all without the benefits of militarizationSalazar s novel is immediately fascinating her writing crisp and the characters unforgettable some heartbreakingly so It s particularly apparent when reading the descriptions of the training Audrey and the other women in the program went through their day to day lives the hard realities of the program the male dominated environment the accidents the deaths that Salazar meticulously researched the WASP program and the histories of real life WASP women because the novel has such a realistic feel within every descriptionWhat I loved most about this novel is the depictions of the relationships between the women in the program Except for their love of flying they couldn t have been any different yet they bonded and became such wonderful friends Salazar captured such distinctive personalities and clearly showed how these women were breaking the glass ceiling for the generations of women to follow themI ve read many many books about WWII but never one about the WASP women Their courage sacrifice and heroism during WWII were spectacular and Salazar has written an excellent first novel depicting those attributes It s also a love story and an epic one too The Flight Girls is an emotionally compelling debut yes I cried and I look forward to Salazar s next novelThank you MIRA Harleuin Publishers for the gifted copy All opinions are my own
