Overview

On Wings Of The Morning by Marie Bostwick

Marie Bostwick delivers a captivating novel of soul mates discovering each other as the country faces its greatest challenge. . .

Morgan Glennon's destiny points straight up into Oklahoma's clear, blue sky. It's been that way since he was four years old, imagining the famous flier father he's never met. Morgan leaves college to enlist as a Navy pilot, and his whole world suddenly changes when America goes to war. Watching his friends fall in battle, robs Morgan of the joy he always felt in the air. It will take one very unusual woman to help him get it back. . .

Georgia Jean Carter learned early never to rely on a man for anything but trouble. Airplanes are different: they take a girl places most boyfriends can't. Remarkably, the war makes it possible for Georgia to do her part as a pilot. Flying with the WASPs brings a special sense of belonging--yet there's something missing that Georgia doesn't recognize until a brief encounter sets her dreaming about a young flyboy she barely knows. . .

Bostwick's novels are historical fiction love stories that feature dedicated, strong women who successfully overcome life's hardships and setbacks to achieve their goals. WINGS tells the true story of the Women's Air Service Pilots (WASP), an organization of brave women who helped win World War II, and about which too little is known. This book will go a long way to making that history better known. One of the main characters in this story is Georgia, one of these pilots. Readers will cheer her as she succeeds in her life's desire to become a pilot. Readers who are looking for books that are inspiring, uplifting, soul-satisfying, and that celebrate the virtues of honor, duty, dedication, and love that endures, buy books written by Marie Bostwick. You will not be disappointed.

On Christmas day 1941, Morgan Glennon informs his mother that he has enlisted. Having flown planes before the war, Morgan knows he will serve as an army air force pilot, but hides from his mom that he expects he will be assigned some of the most dangerous combat missions. ---- Before the war in Waukegan, Illinois, Georgia Carter and flight school owner Roger Welles marry. He taught her how to fly as his wedding gift to his bride. However, the war intruded on their life together with Roger dying during a mission. Georgia joins the Women's Air Service Pilot (WASP), which flies planes from the factories to the bases across the country and possibly run flight tests on new planes. When Georgia and Morgan meet, they are attracted to one another but neither is ready to pursue more than friendship at this time. ---- ON WINGS OF MORNING, the sequel to FIELDS OF GOLD, is a fabulous World War II historical drama starring two likable protagonists who bring to life a bygone era when the country mobilized to fight. Georgia is a terrific protagonist who has joined the WASP so that she can transport planes from the assembly lines to the air bases across the country. Roger and Morgan also volunteered even though both understood their flying experience will place them in hazardous scenarios. Marie Bostwick reminds the audience what made the Greatest generation great is almost everyone understood the need to sacrifice for the war something most of the country today has not done including this reviewer as the President uses a credit card instead of a war tax so that the bills are deferred for a future generation to cope with. ---- Harriet Klausner
