On the ground, the crowd of men stood with their mouths agape, watching the wings soar into the air, the tail kept impressively steady and the small plane with a woman at the controls disappearing into the May sunshine.

It's 1942 and World War Two is in full swing. Roberta 'Bobby' Hollis has joined the Air Transport Auxiliary in a team of pilots known as the 'glamour girls'. Just as capable as the men, these amazing women pilot aircraft all around the country. After a childhood being ignored on the family farm by a withdrawn father and a traumatised mother, Bobby had always wanted an escape. And the ATA seemed like the perfect opportunity to realise her dreams and help her country win the war.

But there's always something standing in her way. Her friend Harriet, who attracts chaos wherever she goes. Her father, who would like to marry her off to a rich farmer's son from the next county. And the family secrets that threaten to engulf everything. Not to mention the danger she's in every day as part of the ATA.

As Bobby navigates her way through life, and love, she has to learn that controlling a huge, four-engined bomber might just be easier than controlling her own life . . .
