About the Author

Dianne fell in love with writing at the age of five. Because her father was a barnstorming pilot, she was bitten early by the “flying bug” as well. She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara and met and married the man God had prepared for her—an aeronautical engineer. After their five children were in school, she burned the midnight oil and wrote three novels, all published by Zebra Press. When her husband died only three years after he retired, she felt drawn to visit the Outer Hebrides Isles of Scotland, where her husband’s clan (MacDonalds) and her own clan (Galbraiths) originated. Many yearly trips, gallons of tea, too little sleep, and a burst of insight birthed her Thistle Series.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Dianne, born August 1933, lived joyfully despite dealing with terminal cancer and died in August 2013, a mere week before the release date for the first book of this series, Broken Wings. Everyone involved with the production of this book and the next five has been blessed beyond measure to have known Dianne and be a part of giving readers a chance to meet Rob and Maggie and visit the beautiful, fictional isle of Innisbraw.

This is a fantastic read! If you want to simply sit and enjoy people, relationships and WWII flying action, I would highly recommend this book.

365 pages. I enjoyed the story and description of rural life during WW II. I thought the story a little slow but I still recommend. The one drawback is this is the first in the series. The story stands alone and has a good stopping point but the war is still going on,so I will have to read the other books to see if their dreams come true.

I loved this story. If you are looking for smut, this is not the book for you. I felt like I was a part of the island of Innisbraw. I can still picture the colorful wildflowers, sandy beach, and rocky hills. Elspeth was the oldest and wisest woman on the island. She prayed for each person by name, and was Rob's teacher of the Scots and Gaelic languages. Hugh was the pastor of the kirk, and became one of Rob's many friends. I was hoping that Una would have a change of heart, but she only grew more savage in her behavior. Rob's and Maggie's love for each other was so deep and pure. I was pulling for their match from their first meeting. I highly recommend this book for your reading pleasure.
