    It s 1939 and the threat of war hangs over Britain And all Lorraine Raine Linfoot wanted to do since her father took her to the flying circus when she was 14 was to be a pilot But it s a man s world and the general consensus is that women can t fly planesa view shared by her highly strung French mother.In the first of what promises to be a heartwarming, feel good series, A SISTER S COURAGE is Raine s storyher journey from a young idealistic 14 year old to the woman who defies the odds It s 1939 and the threat of war hangs over Britain And all Lorraine Raine Linfoot wanted to do since her father took her to the flying circus when she was 14 was to be a pilot But it s a man s world and the general consensus is that women can t fly planesa view shared by her highly strung French mother.In the first of what promises to be a heartwarming, feel good series, A SISTER S COURAGE is Raine s storyher journey from a young idealistic 14 year old to the woman who defies the odds to follow her dream.From the moment her father took her to see the Flying Circus in 1936, Raine knew she wanted to be a pilot To feel the freedom up in the skies, the wind beneath her wings When at 17, she ventures to Biggins Hill airfield to watch the planes, it s there she meets Doug White and she persuades him to teach her to fly whilst arranging a job for her at the airfield to pay for her lessons She knew her mother would never agree to her flying and therefore would never pay for the lessons When Raine has her first solo flight she can hardly contain the thrill of her emotions Upon her return home she excitedly shares her news with her family who are all thrilled for herexcept her mother She is mortified and angered that Raine would choose to defy her regardless of her thoughts on the matter.It isn t long before Raine takes her final test flight and and becomes a fully fledged pilot However, before she can get her hours up, war is declared and the airfield is closed to civilian use Biggins Hill now comes under the RAF and her mentor Doug is sent to Fighter Command in the war against Germany But before he leaves, he recommends she join the newly formed Air Transport Auxilliary ATA who deliver planes throughout the country for the RAF And they are taking women pilots But in the meantime, she must bide her time at the airfield as a typist and clerk where she now falls under the command of Flight Lieutenant Fox, a despicable man who sees women as objects for his own amusement From the start, he rubbed Raine up the wrong way and she refused to let him bully her So when he calls her into his office citing a letter from the ATA asking for pilots, Raine is thrilled to see her chance to fly But she is quickly brought back to earth with a resounding thump when Fox tells her that they are looking for experienced pilots with an excess of 250 hours Raine only had 20and with a war on, no chance to increase her hours in any way But Fox had other plans for Raineand when she refuses his advances and swiftly puts him in his place, he terminates her employment Fearing the new girl Linda s chances with the sleazy Fox, the two women hatch a planwhich sees Linda obtaining the address for the ATA from the letter asking for pilots Raine writes to Pauline Gower who is in charge of the ATA pilots at Hatfield, citing her flying hours and her desire to do her bit for the war effort as a pilot She hears back with the news that she is not immediately successful as the positions have all been filled, but it isn t long before she receives the news she has been waiting for After an interview with Ms Gower and a flight test that proved to be somewhat hair raising, Raine at last obtains her dream job as a pilot for the ATA And not for want of trying eitherfor it seems the required minimum of 250 hours for the position was the cruel work of Flight Lieutenant Fox There had been no minimum flying hours The ATA were desperate for pilots.Meanwhile back home, Raine s mother is as furious as expected To think that her daughter was flying dangerous machines in the air during a war Her sisters, Suzanne and Ronnie, were thrilled for her as was her father Robert Even Doug was elated in their exchange of letters Everyone was happy for her, except her mother On a visit home, she went to a dance with her sister Suzanne, where she met the most infuriating cocky fly boy with the greenest eyes she had ever seen He introduced himself as Alec Marshall She had seen him once before when she started at Biggins Hill before the war and while he was attractive, he was eveninfuriating Even so when he laughed at her.Back in Hatfield, Raine was living her dream as a pilot ferrying fighter planes to the men on the front line And although she had only ever flown a Tiger Moth, she was soon flying other planes such as Hurricanes, Spitfires and Typhoons It was the general consensus amongst the female pilots that the Spitfire was a woman s plane It was light and comfortable and truly a dream to fly And when Raine got her chance to fly her first Spit, she understood exactly what the other women meant It WAS a woman s plane.Then Raine receives the devastating news that Doug s plane had been shot down in France and, unless he bailed out before it crashed, he was missing presumed dead It wasn t long after that she received her last letter from Doug which appeared to be unfinished, and in it he stated his true feelings for her and hoped they could marry upon his return But suddenly Raine wasn t sure This man who had seemed so much older than her,experienced, she d always looked on as an older brother She didn t think she loved him in that way But when she laid eyes on Alec Marshall again, she knew where her heart lay But being the stubborn woman that she was, Raine never admitted her true feelings to anyonefor fear of her heart being broken This war was a cruel war and it was taking so many lives She didn t know if she could give her heart to anotheronly to lose it should he be killed.A SISTER S COURAGE is a heartwarming story that sees Raine breaking with convention learning to fly and then going on to do a man s job during the toughest of conditions Wartime was not an easy time Women were left at home to keep the home fires burning, but many were also given roles they had never had beforein place of the men who were out there fighting They had to deal with prejudice, convention, family and relationships.I love historical fiction, with WW2 fiction often a favourite A SISTER S COURAGE is no different It is well written and well portrayed with characters that are relatable and well developed as far as this part of the story goes As we know, this is the first installment in The Victory Sisters series and is Raine s story The second book I note will be focusing on Raine s sister Suzanne in the appropriately titledA Sister s Song .This is my first book my Molly Green and it won t be my last I thoroughly enjoyed A SISTER S COURAGE and look forward toA Sister s Song .I would like to thank MollyGreen, NetGalley and AvonUK for an ARC of ASistersCourage in exchange for an honest review.This review appears

    While I enjoyed the premise of A Sister s Courage, the first in Molly Green s Victory Sisters series, Ihad to continually remind myself how young Raine Linfoot was The heroine of the book may have been a pilot during World War II, shuttling planes between airfields, but she was only seventeen when she joined the Air Transport Auxiliary By the end of the book, she was only twenty There are reasons I found her rude and abrupt, sometimes quite selfish, not the easiest person to like.Lorraine Ra While I enjoyed the premise of A Sister s Courage, the first in Molly Green s Victory Sisters series, Ihad to continually remind myself how young Raine Linfoot was The heroine of the book may have been a pilot during World War II, shuttling planes between airfields, but she was only seventeen when she joined the Air Transport Auxiliary By the end of the book, she was only twenty There are reasons I found her rude and abrupt, sometimes quite selfish, not the easiest person to like.Lorraine Raine Linfoot wanted to be a pilot from the time she was young, and her father first let her take a ride in a plane Even then, she and her father kept the flight a secret from her French mother, who would have objected Raine learned to keep a lot of secrets from her mother, including her job when she was seventeen, and her flying lessons By the time the war was on, and the women in the AirTransport Auxiliary were hired to ferry aircraft to airfields, she could no longer hide her passion from her mother That didn t prevent her mother from trying to coerce her oldest daughter to return home.But, Raine enjoyed her experiences flying various planes, and working with other female pilots She didn t enjoy living with the fear of loss The pilot who trained her went missing, presumed dead Another pilot, Alec Marshall, was interested in her, but she worried about him Was he safe Would he, too, go missing or end up dead Would she crash a plane herself Even when she has the opportunity to go on leave, she sees bombed out buildings, and sees death and destruction She can t escape it in 1939 England.As I said, I loved the history and premise of this story Green s author s note at the beginning of the book says there were 168 female pilots including 4 female engineers who joined the Air Transport Auxiliary, risking their lives every day to ferry planes to where they were needed And, she uses Pauline Gower, an actual woman, as an essential character in the book According to the author, Gower was a qualified pilot who fought for the rights of female pilots to be allowed to join the ATA, and she was appointed Senior Commander of the women s section By 1943, she also obtained equal pay for the women pilots, unfortunately only for the war years Raine s experiences as a pilot before and during the war years was fascinating But, it took time for her to mature, to become less rude and inconsiderate Perhaps she was that way because of her lifelong conflict with her mother As the oldest of three daughters, Raine fought her mother for her desired role and career But, I found it difficult to like her, or her unwillingness to speak the truth to a man who wanted to be first a friend, and then wanted .Despite my feelings about Raine, I m still interested in the novel about the second sister The next one is scheduled for May 2020 It s fascinating to read about the British women on the homefront during World War II

    The plot was too predictable, too thin I liked Raine, an obstinate, determined character, ready to do what it takes to fulfill her dreams but I did not find the two men in her life Doug and Alec agreeable enough They did not fight for her, they presumed she loved them because they were pilots heroes.
