I read and reviewed Cynthia's first novel, My Way Home, and absolutely loved it. So, I was really excited about her new novel, Wings. I was not disappointed - I adore it!
It's WWII and Liddy Hall is just trying to survive. Her father's in a home and she's trying to pay the hefty expenses of his care while also trying to have some money leftover to pay her own bills. She's spent most of her life with airplanes and has a desire to own a pair silver wings.
When the Army begins seeking female pilots, Liddy knows that this could be her chance, even though she is scared to leave behind her small town, friends and family. But she is only free and at peace when she is in the air. She passes the exams and soon finds herself in training. Along the way, she meets many women that she befriends. She also meets Major Reid and really falls for him even though she can't understand why he brushes her off as soon as he learns she is a woman pilot.
