    This was a nice story. It is the sequel to Fields Of Gold. I highly recommend one reads that one first to understand Morgan and where he comes from. I liked this novel a lot more tho mainly because it has a lady pilot in it, whereas its predecessor was about Charles Lindbergh and a farm girl. This book does the back and forth thing but it is not done in a confusing manner. One chapter tells Georgia's side of the story and then next chapter tells us what is going on in Morgan's mind. Georgia is a WASP (women air service pilot) from a troubled home. We meet her in the early days of her childhood and watch her grow into a young woman with the desire to fly. She accomplishes her goal and also aides in the war effort. She finds and loses love. She loses and regains faith. She also narrates about her WASP training and readers meet a lot of great lady pilots. And of course, she tells of the disagreeable men she must deal with on a daily basis. Morgan is the unknown child of Charles Lindbergh tho he does not know it. He grew up on a small farm in Oklahoma, but like Georgia, has always wanted to fly. He enlists and flies bombers in World War 2 and his paths often cross with the beautiful Georgia. Morgan's narratives will englighten readers about world war 2 aircraft as well as details about the dangers fighter pilots faced during that time of history. Will Morgan survive the war? Will Georgia allow herself to love again? Perhaps these two will unite before the end of the book... A good story. I highly recommend it for aviation buffs. I think this is somewhat a Christian novel tho as there was a lot of relgious content regarding prayer, faith, and also a bit of preaching.

    This is a sequel to Fields of Gold. I love the writing, incorporating references to history, the Bible, wise insights to life situations, and gorgeous imagery. Loved following the characters' earnest struggles to live a productive, honorable life, and how their lives were woven together.

    This book intrigued me because it is set in the World War II era which is a current interest of mine. The hero of the story has loved planes and flying since he was a small boy, and his family saved enough money to send him to flight school. The heroine of the story wanted to do something useful for the war effort, so she went to school to train to be a ferry pilot, beating incredible odds to succeed. Nicely put together and with enough description to satisfy my "need to know" about the war in the Pacific.

    I thought this was an exceptionally well-written novel. The author, Marie Bostwick accomplished something that very few others have - I cried several times throughout the book. The tears came from every emotional aspect of the human condition, happiness, sadness, frustration, joy, etc . . . Beautifully done!I cannot recommend this book and author enough. Brilliant! I will definitely read more of Ms Bostwick's books.

    An OK book, but nothing special. It was nice to see some stories from "Fields of Gold" from the perspective of the son as opposed to the mother. I liked learning a little bit about the WASPs (Women Pilots that worked for the army) from World War II. Perhaps I'll look up some non fiction books about this group of women and their contributions to the war effort. This book seemed a little contrived, but not totally impossible.

    I loved Marie Bostwick's "Fields of Gold" and was looking forward to loving this book as well. Unfortunately Ms. Bostwick decided to take a decent story and turn it into a sermon. The preaching in this novel was difficult to endure and entirely out of context most of the time. It is irritating when a book is touted as historical fiction but is actually thinly disguised Christian fiction. You've lost a reader, Ms. Bostwick.

    This is a beautifully written story. I've enjoyed it a lot. Again this is a book I picked up on the New shelf at the library and I've not been disappointed. It love the love stories, the flying obsessions and the quilting ties in this book. I love how the two characters come together at all the right times and how things work out. I also like how the author credits God for these things. It really was a joy to read this.

    I enjoyed this book more than the Cobbled Court series. It was interesting to me that the writing style seemed so different between the two. The story didn't feel as drawn out as some of the Cobbled Court books (I found myself skimming a lot while reading those). I enjoyed the characters and the story kept me interested. I liked the perspective on the women pilots group, WASP. I learned a few new things which is always good.

    Started reading this yesterday is a lighter alternative to some of the heavier, political books I've been reading lately (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) and was blown away. Read all yesterday afternoon and all day today and couldn't put it down. Interesting from a historical standpoint about women pilots during WWII, combined with a riveting love story. A charming book that will keep you reading straight through to the last page.

    Good story of 2 people and their relationship,embedded with World War II aviation history. The 2 main characters are a fighter pilot and a WASP pilot. In addition, the story includes the struggle many people have with applying a church background to become a faith they can live by in a real life, and it reads like a realistic story.

    4* A good book, not extraordinary but pretty good. The story follows 2 pilots, a man and a woman. Each of them have to deal with heartache in their lives during the war. It was interesting to read about the women pilots and their obstacles in WWII. They did not fly in combat but served at home in transport and test-pilot roles.

    I enjoyed this book. It is written from two different perspective and I like the innocent quality of the book. I thought it was well written but reading from those two perspectives could be a little annoying. They didn't gel as seemingly as I would have liked.It's about two pilots whose lives interchange while serving in the second world war.

    I enjoy historical fiction and although this is basically a love story which drags on way to long the redeeming factors was the love story was between an pilot fighting in the Pacific during WWII and a WAC who flew planes, trained pilots and could even repair a plane if needed. Throw in Charles Lindbergh and you have a fairly interesting story.

    A nice, little book that was pretty much free from any of the trash usually thrown into the latest novels. Christian undertones/themes, but nothing overt. Found out there's a book that takes places before this, so I might read that, too.

    It's a light story, but I liked the history of the WASP-women pilots in WWII. There are a couple of passages that are beautiful in the defense of faith and other virtues, but overall it seemed contrived and a little too predictable.

    Sequel to Fields of Gold. I hope it is a bit better than the first book in this series of 2. I have finally read this and it is a LOT better than the first one. Got into the Character of Gerogia. She was a hoot ! and well worth the read.

    Overall the book was just ok. I liked it a lot better in the begining when it was mostly focused on flying. Toward the end I found the characters more annoying, they were always lying to each other which created a lot of problems.

    This book was very very hard to follow in the beginning. But i figured out why -- there is a book before it!!! Must read the book before it to totally understand this book!!! But, read this book eventually too!
