Summary, etc.:
Inspired by the real women of the Women's Air Raid Defense, this extraordinary novel follows Daisy Wilder as she, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, enlists in a top secret program for civilians in the military, which takes her to wartime Hawaii where she finds love, courage, strength, and sisterhood.
In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, Daisy Wilder enlists in a top secret program, replacing male soldiers in a war zone for the first time. Under fear of imminent invasion, the Women's Air Raid Defense (WARD) guides pilots into blacked-out airstrips and track unidentified planes across Pacific skies. Not everyone thinks the women are up to the job, and the new recruits meet resistance and heartache along the way. Determined to prove herself worthy-- and with the man she's falling for out on the front lines-- she cannot fail. She'll need her new team when the stakes are highest. -- adapted from back cover
