Many thanks to NetGalley and H Digital team for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest reviewI was attracted to this book by the cover artwork and by the title I am a big fan of books that are set in the second World War and find it fascinating to read about the different roles that women were able to participate in meaningfully assisting with what was going on in the war either at home or elsewhere In reading this book I learned a lot about the role of women as Air Transport Pilots in the ATA or Air Transport Auxiliary I had heard about this before but wasn t very informed about it so imagine my surprise this past week when I went to a play that featured a character who had been an ATA pilot It was nice to have background information on thisThe book however is than just a description of what the job of the female pilots did in the air It also deals with an important social issue of the time when many women found themselves unexpectedly pregnant with nowhere to turn This is a very timely topic as it s still of concern today and people tend to have strong feelings on the subject and may not be thrilled with the choices that these women made The story has descriptions of a young teen being groomed into a sexual relationship without initially realizing that she was being taken advantage ofThe author chose to tell this story using a techniue that I am noticing in many of the books that I read these days It is one that seems to work well where the story is told through a look back through time driven by a connection to a family member Helena the main character from modern times works in a tv field where she researches the family history of celebrities When she meets one unusual celebrity she discovers while researching his story that their appears to be a possible connection to her much loved Aunt Lil who had been a member of the ATA A family mystery seems to be involved as Lil has never shared her wartime experiences and Helena s father really wants to know even if it proves to be upsetting to Lil Helena ends up on a uest much like a detective to find out about her aunt s past There is also a romantic element as she learns to care for the celebrity that she is researchingLil s story is told throughout the book in her own voice and it was fascinating and painful The whole story really grabbed me and kept me reading to find out what would happen next The book shed a light on why some people don t want to talk about their wartime experiences but perhaps talking is just what is needed Kerry Barrett did an excellent job in crafting this story which was inspired at least in part by Mary Ellis the last surviving pilot from the Air Transport Auxiliary who died at 101 while the author was in the process of writing the book Lots of her experiences were apparently reflected in the novel This is a book which should make a reader think and reflect on the times and the issues these women faced They were not always well received by their male co workers and were held to very high standards Although the book may have some triggers for sexual assault survivors and deals with the topic of abortion I would highly recommend it to those interested in this time period and can see it would make a great book for a book club to discuss

I truly enjoyed this HF I believe this network of women actually existed during WWII and I m afraid we may need to recreate it here in the US in the too near futureMy soapbox aside this is a well told story shifting between WWII and contemporary UK I like the way Helena s job lead naturally to her grandmother s history I thought the back and forth was well done The ending was predictable but I still enjoyed this novelRecommended for WWII fans as well as fans of uiet strong get the job done women
