about

In 1942, 25,000 young women applied to join theWomen's AirForce
Service Pilots (WASPs), but few were accepted.  They fought male
hostility, poor equipment and official disdain to become pilots.  They
piloted fighters and heavy bombers, but were specifically forbidden to
fly overseas.

Kansas farm girl SALLY HANSEN realizes her childhood dream to become an aviator and fly the Atlantic when, secretly,  she and her pilot husband ferry a Liberator bomber to Scotland.  But the airplane disappears and is officially listed as missing over Greenland.  Sally is not mentioned and her family, unaware of the flight, believes she cruelly abandoned her baby daughter and vanished.

Sixty years later, granddaughter, SCARLETT MITCHELL, a single mom raising her daughter in a dying West Texas town, receives Sally's journal mailed anonymously from Scotland by someone who wants to clear his conscience before he dies.

Scarlett unearths more journals and gradually discovers the truth about her grandmother's flight.  The quest takes her to Scotland where she braves her own misgivings, fights an obstructive government agency, and faces a deep- rooted fear of romantic involvement with ROBERT CAMPBELL, a young Scottish pilot.  Together they uncover the true story of Sally's flight.
