My Review: We follow Tasha who is a former WW2 pilot and her sister Nadia on their journey through love, training and the shocking happenings of WWII. They were a group of women pilots nicknamed the Night Witches. Nadia marries and lives her own trauma.
This book is an example of how Hitlers War went from one extreme to another. Its a story of love, loss and hope. Will Tasha ever see her childhood friend and love of her life Luca again?
An intensely emotional read and heart wrenching book as much as its inspiring.
1942, Europe: Based on the true story of a female-only bomber battalion, this is a totally heartbreaking and unforgettable story about sacrifice, sisterhood and a love that transcends war.
When the love of Tasha’s life, Luca, joins the air force to fight against the evil Nazi invaders, she knows she has to follow her heart—and him—into battle. Headstrong, impulsive and a daredevil, she’s the perfect recruit.
Tasha’s sensible older sister Nadia plans only to stop Tasha’s madness and bring her home. But a chance encounter puts her in a plane, soaring above the clouds, and she also finds her calling.
Underestimated by their superiors, Nadia and her sister find themselves in airplanes barely fit to fly, being sent on perilous missions with little hope of return. But before long their battalion is being nicknamed ‘the Night Witches’ by the Nazis, their ownership of the skies second to none.
But danger is up in the storm clouds with them, and when both sisters are shot down behind Nazi enemy lines, and taken to a brutal prison camp, they expect to never see their beloved homeland again.
Until Tasha’s eyes meet across the wire fence with someone she never expected to see again: the love of her life, Luca.
But with love comes peril… Will one sister have to sacrifice everything to save the other?
Absolutely unputdownable historical fiction, perfect for fans of All the Light We Cannot See, The Ragged Edge of Night, and The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
