NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • World War II brings together six remarkable young flight nurses, who face the challenges of war and its many heartbreaks and victories as unsung heroes, in this inspiring novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel.

Audrey Parker’s life changes forever when Pearl Harbor is attacked on December 7, 1941. Her brother, a talented young Navy pilot, had been stationed there, poised to fulfill their late father’s distinguished legacy. Fresh out of nursing school with a passion and a born gift for helping others, both Audrey and her friend Lizzie suddenly find their nation on the brink of war. Driven to do whatever they can to serve, they enlist in the Army and embark on a new adventure as flight nurses.
Risking their lives on perilous missions, they join the elite Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron and fly into enemy territory almost daily to rescue wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Audrey and Lizzie make enormous sacrifices to save lives alongside an extraordinary group of nurses: Alex, who longs to make a difference in the world; Louise, a bright mind who faced racial prejudice growing up in the South; Pru, a selfless leader with a heart of gold; and Emma, whose confidence and grit push her to put everything on the line for her patients.
Even knowing they will not achieve any rank and will receive little pay for their efforts, the “Flying Angels” will give their all in the fight for freedom. They serve as bravely and tirelessly as the men they rescue on the front lines, in daring airlifts, and are eternally bound by their loyalty to one another. Danielle Steel presents a sweeping, stunning tribute to these incredibly courageous women, inspiring symbols of bravery and valor.

    Started out great. I feel it dragged on and on. Much of a repeat.I’ll read one more book from Danielle Steel but this wasn’t what expected by reading the reviews. Women bravery but also tragic loss.

    Incredible women!
  • Disappointing

    By goernerv
    The subject matter was excellent. The characters seemed flat to me. I would have liked this to have been a longer book more in the style of her earlier historical fiction.

    If Danielle Steel is being paid by the word she’s in luck. Again, too many words. Had my doubts about this book. The Butler was great but not this one.
  • Highly recommended & riveting story!

    By Ballarddebbie
    Loved reading the engaging and enthralling story about women risking their lives to save wounded soldiers. Lizzie, Audrey, Pru, Alex, Emma, and Louise all work together as nurses in the Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron, become close friends, and are supportive of each other. Read the highly recommended and wonderfully written story about the Flying Angels.
