I read and reviewed Cynthia's first novel, My Way Home, and absolutely loved it. So, I was really excited about her new novel, Wings. I was not disappointed - I adore it!

I would sincerely love this book. I learned about the WASPs about two years ago, and I am so grateful that their stories are being told and that they are now being recognized by both th military, and the USA.

This was a lovely historical novel about women flyers during WWII. It had a bit of romance in it - but never got maudlin.

Great for an afternoon read with a bit of actual history thrown it! It also makes me want to dig into the history of these women. The novel suggested that some women's programs went on in time, while this one folded.

Why?

As the daughter of a WWII woman marine, I was fascinated by this tale of women flyers. It's a good read and brought back lots of memories of stories Mom used to tell about the sisterhood of these military women who pushed so many boundaries.

Cynthia was born in Los Angeles and raised in northern California and Arizona. Her early life in California, living across the street from a vineyard, working in her father’s large vegetable garden and growing up around a menagerie of animals—dogs, cats, chickens, a horse, a cow, and a very surly goat—infused Cynthia with a love of country life and of watching things grow.
