Bostwick's sequel to her debut novel, Fields of Gold, is a one-of–a-kind find, the sort of book that completely transports you to another place in time. This wonderful story has the complete package: romance, drama and a fast-paced, seamless plotline.

It's Christmas 1941, and Morgan Glennon comes home to tell his mother that he has enlisted. Because he has previous flight experience, Morgan knows that he will likely encounter some of the most dangerous missions of wartime as a pilot.

In Waukegan, Ill., Georgia Carter has married Roger Welles, and she helps him keep the books for his flight school. Roger, in turn, fulfilled her childhood dream by teaching her how to fly.

As the reality and tragedy of war intrude on Georgia's life, she decides to train to be a WASP -- Women's Air Service Pilot. As a WASP, she will deliver newly constructed planes across the country and possibly run flight tests on new planes.

While undergoing intensive training to become a WASP, Georgia meets Morgan, and they become friends, though there's a pull of physical attraction between them. Only time will tell how their relationship will develop, as they face with the burdens of their pasts and the separation that must be endured by those living in wartime.
