The Flight GirlsThe Flight Girls by Noelle Salazar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Flight Girls tells the story of women from across the country, from all walks of life, who had a flying background. Their job, unrecognized for decades, was to train US pilots, test-fly all models of US aircraft, some new, most repaired. The would ferry planes across the nation, base to base, to support the men who would fly these planes in missions all over the world during the war. This is their story. Following some character introduction, the basics begin on December 7, 1941, with the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, and ends in 1945, the end of WWII. Educational history of these pilots and their vital role.

The remaining 80-85% of this novel is a Harlequin romance, which isn’t really my cup ‘o tea. Just sayin’. If you like romance novels and a wee bit of history, you’ll find it peachy.

Xe Sands narration is great, as usual, but be prepared with a box of tissues. Debut novel by Noelle Salazar, just over ten hours of listening, released in July 2019 by Harlequin Audio.
