Noelle Salazar – The Flight Girls



“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. Its why she signed up to train military pilots in Hawaii when the war in Europe began. And its 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 with whom she flies. 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 shes 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 best-selling author of The Lieutenant’s Nurse)

….INCREDIBLE. A flawless work of perfect art about quite possibly the most pivotal moment in modern history. Everything was believable: the characters, the feelings, the situations, the dialogue……. I enjoyed this so much and I love that there were strong brave women back then to rise to such an occasion. And I am so grateful there are women like this author willing to put pen to paper and immortalize them with words so that their legacy can live on. I will never forget this book as long as I live.
