The extraordinary years of World War II unfold through the eyes of three people, who confront challenges and opportunities they had not imagined.Louise Mitchell learned to fly when she was 19, but for 11 years, she has done little more than give people rides at a small airfield near Sioux City, Iowa. Then a letter arrives with news that a squadron of women pilots is being formed to deliver planes for the Army.Tom Clark has worked for Franklin Roosevelt for more than a decade. As the threat of war looms, he becomes the eyes and ears of the president on a variety of missions. Anne Wilson, a beautiful and brilliant journalist, returns from defeated France to take a job with the Washington Post and resumes her romance with Tom. They are discussing their future together when the news of Pearl Harbor arrives.In this carefully researched novel, we meet numerous historical figures, including Claire Chennault of the Flying Tigers, and Nancy Love, leader of the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron. A thoroughly enjoyable way to absorb history!
