A Sister’s Courage (The Victory Sisters, #1)
A Sister’s Courage by Molly Green
Raine is a hard-headed young woman with her sights set on becoming a pilot. But, it’s 1939, and Britain is on the brink of war. Working as an accountant at the local aerodrome isn’t enough – she wants to be in the cockpit. But, her mother and her boss have different ideas.
NEVER GIVE UP
Veronique, the youngest sister, is a tomboy who loves being outdoors. Middle sister, Suzanne, is a talented musician who aims to please her parents and can do no wrong. And then there is Lorraine (Raine) Linfoot – the eldest sister of the family. Smart, ambitious, and beautiful – she’d be well suited to work in the town dress shop. It certainly would make her mother happy. However, Raine wants more action. More adventure. More control of her life.
Raine is determined to live out her dreams of flying high in the sky. And, she won’t take no for an answer! She’s out to prove to herself that she can, and to show her sisters what is possible.
TWIST OF FATE
A fortuitous meeting with a handsome flight instructor, Doug, couldn’t come at a better time. Raine can hardly believe her luck that he set her up with a job in the office at the aerodrome. And, he’s offered to provide flying lessons if she can make the time. Without hesitations, she grabs the opportunity.
But when war is declared, and Doug is called to duty, flying lessons are at an end. It’s too dangerous for novice pilots and women are expected to help the war effort in factories or as nurses. Again, with a stroke of luck the Air Transport Auxillary (ATA) needs the help of female pilots! Raine steps up to the task, eager to do her part delivering equipment to the men on the front line.
Just when life seems to be exciting and rewarding, Raine gets the news. Doug is reported as missing, presumed dead. She had a crush on him when they first met, and they’ve kept writing to one another fondly. So, will she be able to reconcile with her grief? Or will she find love in the arms of a green-eyed pilot who seems keen on her?
I am kinda into this book! I’m a sucker for World War II fiction, especially when it has a strong female lead. This story has it all – family drama, romance, adventure, and war. At times it seems there are too many ideas rushing out of Green’s mind. With a healthy round of editing, this book could be more charming and captivating. A Sister’s Courage by Molly Green weaves together career aspirations with the rush of wartime romance. You’ll be cheering for Raine (and true love) in the end!
