Set in WW ll Great Britain and later, France, this is the story of two young women, Maddie, a girl from Manchester who learns to be an ace motorcycle mechanic at her grandfather's repair shop and later an ace pilot flying an assortment of beautifully described aircraft for Britain's Air Transport Auxiliary, and the "Verity" of the story, a girl from an aristocratic family brought up in a castle in Scotland and as the book opens, a prisoner in the hands of a ruthless Gestapo leader. I won't spoil the how and why of this situation with details you, as a reader, should learn for yourself!
You will come to care as deeply for these two courageous women as they come to care for each other. “It's like being in love, discovering your best friend,” one girl
quotes on the delight of their sharing some pretty amazing adventures together. Many under unimaginable war time circumstances, "we make a sensational team" she adds.
Cheers to Ms.Wein for giving us the gift of a truly great story!
