New Year's Eve, 1940: Evie Chase, determined to make a difference to the war effort, joins the ATA, the civilian pilots who ferry Tiger Moths and Spitfires to bases across Britain. Two other women nervously join up: Stella Grainger and Megan Jones. Billeted in a tiny cottage, they must learn to live and work together. Brave, beautiful and fiercely independent, they find romance, confront loss, and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.

Avid reader, freelance writer, world traveler, animal lover. I love sharing my opinions about the books I read.
I think I would have liked the story but the narrator was very annoying! I realize it's hard to do different accents and things but some of the character's voices bordered on weird. The men were ultra loud and you could almost see the spittle coming from some of their mouths when they talked. I hate to be critical and usually am not but I couldn't get past the strange accents and voices of the characters. I was only able to listen to about 90 minutes of it.
No, I love WWII books.
I didn't even finish it.
"One of My favorites"
This is certenly one of my top 10 favorites. I loved miss Chase very very much. The part where she sings is one of the most tear gerking I ever read. This book is so beautiful in every way. It is complicated. Things happen slowly, but you get to know everyone better. I recommend.
What an addictive book and with all the elements that make you remember it! Some fiction, romance, history, fun! Well worth a read or listen.
