A PUBLISHERS WEEKLY BESTSELLER

A WOMAN’S WORLD BEST NEW BOOK

“I read well into the night, unable to stop. The book is unputdownable.”—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Heart-breaking, validating, exciting.”—Hypable

“Rich historical detail...this saga has it all.”—Woman’s World

Shining a light on a little-known piece of history The Flight Girls is a sweeping portrayal of women’s fearlessness, love, and the power of friendship to make us soar.

1941. Audrey Coltrane has always wanted to fly. It’s why she implored her father to teach her at the little airfield back home in Texas. It’s why she signed up to train military pilots in Hawaii when the war in Europe began. And it’s why she insists she is not interested in any dream-derailing romantic involvements, even with the disarming Lieutenant James Hart, who fast becomes a friend as treasured as the women she flies with. Then one fateful day, she gets caught in the air over Pearl Harbor just as the bombs begin to fall, and suddenly, nowhere feels safe.

To make everything she’s lost count for something, Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. The bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face war, and—when James goes missing in action—give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight not only for her country, but for the love she holds so dear.

“Captivated me from the first page and never let go...a powerful tale of courage and sacrifice by the Women Airforce Service Pilots during WWII. A spectacular first novel.”—Sara Ackerman, USA TODAY bestselling author of The Lieutenant’s Nurse

    I picked this book up while doing my last minute shopping for vacation. The cover caught my attention and the summary drew me in. I don’t get to read as often as I used to and my goal was to read one novel during my vacation and I’m SO glad I picked this one. I loved the history and loved learning about these amazing women I had never heard of. The romance in the book was as drawing as the historical aspect. It was a perfect mix and I haven’t read a book this good in a long time. The pages were filled with intense emotion and Noelle pulled you into the pages with her excellent descriptions of what was taking place. I found myself smiling, laughing, furrowing my brow in disbelief, crying and falling in love with the characters and becoming committed to their stories. It was hard to put down and while I wanted to get to the end to find out what happens I also didn’t want it to end either.
  • Amazing book! Definite must read

    I purchased this book this afternoon, just looking for something to read to pass an hour of my time. I quickly became engrossed in the storyline and couldn’t put it down and read it start to finish in one sitting. Absolutely amazing read. I just couldn’t stop to find out what happens in the end. Definite must read- I will be telling everyone I know to pick up their own copy.
  • Great book

    This book may very well be one of the best things to happen to my book-nerd book obsessed heart in 2019.😍 This is the first book by Noelle Salazar and let me tell you, she knocked it straight outta the park with this one. This is based on a group of women who trained pilots during WWII and they were a kickass group. From the first few pages I was wholly pulled into this world. From nervous and tentative flushing out of romantic attraction, to the fear, adrenaline and horror as they watched/experienced the attack on Pearl Harbor... these pages are steeped in so much feeling and history. Sometimes I get my hands on a book and I start fangirling like a lunatic... this is one of those books. Historical fictions fans, fiction fans, fans of words, do not miss out on this book. It is a note of perfection flying above a sea of books. (You see what I did there?🤓😂) I have read this book TWICE! Two times despite all of the other books I have committed to reading while trying to live life. Both times I did not want to put it down. I’m a raving fan of this one. Thank you to the publisher for providing a complimentary advance copy of this title. All comments/opinions are my own.
