Tasha may not have been ready to marry her beloved Luca, but she is heartbroken when he joins the Air Force at what is a very difficult time in history during World War II. Determined to remain close to him, Tasha also joins the efforts, and soon becomes a part of a female only bomber battalion, which is the first of its kind.
One of the people that Tasha leaves behind is her older sister Nadia. Nadia‘s recent marriage and home life are anything but happy, and now she is on the war front as well. While it may not have been Nadia’s idea to be flying these dangerous planes, joining the battalion is the only way that she knows to protect her sister Tasha. Although the rivalry between the two sisters was sometimes a barrier, one thing was made clear, and that was their love for each other.
Despite excellent flying skills and sharp instincts, before Tasha gets the opportunity to prove herself capable enough to fight alongside Luca, both she and Nadia are captured and spend time in a terrible prison camp. Readers are introduced to the Russian Night Witches, an actual Russian fighter pilot force during World War II in this latest compelling read by Suzanne Kelman. The experiences were harrowing, the emotion was raw and intense, the bravery was stellar, and the writing of this book was exceptional.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
