Orphan Gabriella (don’t dare call her that!) “Gabe” O’Connor has grown up with the loving, boisterous O’Connor family, but at her heart she’s still a streetwise, heartbroken little girl. When the US enters World War II, Gabe decides to put her piloting skills to use in the WASPs. But her trouble-making tendencies get in her way.
Flight instructor Lt. Alex Kincaid sees Gabe’s potential – and the danger her freewheeling ways present. An extreme attraction grows between Alex and Gabe, forbidden not only by regulations but by Alex’s own common sense. When Gabe pulls one too many stunts, Alex is faced with a decision that endangers their relationship and Gabe’s dreams.
A Wing and a Prayer by Julie Lessman is a fun and wild ride. Gabe’s outrageous behavior is nicely balanced by Alex’s steadiness. The story explores the WASP training program, air evacuation, and the life of war correspondents. Gabe’s road to redemption is long and frustrating, but her story is ultimately uplifting. Enjoy the ride!
