About this title
When Brad Conners enters Navy flight training he never expects to meet a young woman who will turn his world upside down. Like Brad, Lilli Foster has never known love. During flight training, Brad's grades suffer. When it appears certain he will wash out of flight program, Lilli gives him a silver crucifix. When he tries to refuse to accept the gift, she insists he keep it, telling him it will bring him good luck. She claims the crucifix has no special meaning to her, a lie as it is her most precious possession. It is the only link to her father, a man she has never seen in her life. Lilli dreads the day that Brad will leave Pensacola for advanced flight training in Texas. She fears that will be the day he walks out of her life for good.About the Author:
Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, Harrison taught high school biology and chemistry for two years before joining the Navy to "see the world" During his 26 years as a US Navy aviator, he flew to forty-three countries, lived in six and for many years flew missions to and from aircraft carriers at sea. Harrison earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas, Arlington, a Master of Arts degree from Michigan State University, and a Master of Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. He currently is an associate professor of aeronautics for Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Tarnished Wings is based on actual events that occurred during his naval career and his experience as a Navy flight instructor and a flight leader in which he supervised 35 Navy flight instructors and an average student load of sixty to seventy flight students. Harrison began work on Tarnished Wings while living in Fontana Vecchia, a 350-year-old villa in Taormina, Sicily, formerly the home to two internationally famous writers, D.H. Lawrence and Truman Capote. He continues to live in Taormina, Sicily.
