Summary:

It's 1939 and the threat of war hangs over Britain ... A spirited young woman, Raine Linfoot has always had an overriding ambition to take to the skies. Her hero, Doug Williams, teaches her to fly when she is just 17. With her pilot's license it seems as though the sky's the limit for Raine ... until war breaks out. Raine knows that her place is not at home and she is determined to assist the war effort by doing what she loves, but the Air Transport Auxiliary aren't taking women. Though at the height of the war, they need her help, and Raine is offered the opportunity to join the force and prove she is up to the task, risking her life daily ferrying aircraft to the men on the front line. But when tragedy strikes and Doug is reported missing after being shot down in his Spitfire, Raine realises that this war could tear both the country she loves - and her heart - apart ... A brave and gripping story about women overcoming adversity whilst navigating love, loss, and the treacherous wartime skies.
