MRS. WITHERSPOON GOES TO WAR by Mary Davis, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay

What an interesting and exciting adventure. Mrs. Peg Witherspoon is a war widow who has been a pilot for a very long time. She uses her expertise to become a WASP during WWII. This story showcases the jobs WASPs did, from ferrying planes to being a mechanic and beyond.

I liked the way the female characters bolstered each other and showed their patriotism. The book also shed light on the way the WASPs were treated by their male counterparts, sometimes not so well. The romance with Major Howie Berg was slow and steady since neither wanted to jeopardize their jobs. And through it all, Peg returns to her faith since it faltered since the death of her husband.

Some highlights were when the ladies scavenged a plane from the graveyard of abandoned airplanes. And danger had me on the edge of my seat more than once.

This is a great addition to the Heroines of WWII series. I recommend this enjoyable book.
