Summary
"The year is 1927, and in America, England and Russia, three young girls share a dream: to fly. But in an age when men still rule the skies, the odds are stacked against them ... As the grim shadow of war falls once again upon the west, Hazel, Lilya and Marlene leap at the chance to fly for their countries. In the face of doubt, racism and constant peril, they fearlessly pursue their passions for aviation like no woman before."--Page 4 of cover
