Revealing the little-known story of World War II’s pioneering Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), FLYING tells the tale of Susan, a skilled pilot who, barred from combat missions by her sex, had performed such essential duties as ferrying planes and towing training targets in order to free male pilots for combat duty during the war. Home in peacetime and running her husband’s small airfield while awaiting his return from overseas, Susan struggles to keep the business aloft while confronting challenges on other fronts, including the arrival of an inexperienced stranger carrying her husband’s promise of a job, and her own fears and regrets. Drawn from oral histories and memoirs of women who served in the WASP program, Flying explores the aftermath of war and the quiet, daily acts of heroism that never earn a medal.
