Heart in the Clouds by Jennifer Mistmorgan
In 1942, Maggie Morrison serves in the WAAF as the calm voice on the radio helping pilots to land at their English airfield. But she’s reeling from the loss of her mother and from a heart shattered by a rakish pilot.
Australian pilot Alec Thomas is as confident with women as he is in the cockpit of his Lancaster bomber, so he’s taken aback to receive a chilly reception from Maggie. Impulsively, he accepts a bet that he can win a kiss from her before New Year’s Day. But as his combat tour winds down, the challenges ramp up – both in the air and on the ground.
A sweet and compelling romance that doesn’t shy away from the difficulties of war. Heart in the Clouds is beautifully researched, based on Jennifer Mistmorgan‘s grandfather’s experiences as a pilot in the RAAF. Perfect for both World War II buffs and for those who simply enjoy a lovely story and characters who feel like friends. Don’t miss this one!
