I've read many WWII genre books and this is the first one I've come across that involves the ATA - and - is written by a fellow Albertan! Although I'm not overly fond of his heroine, Sharon, the book moves at a decent pace and is easy to read. I would have preferred his character portrayal of Sharon to be less ill-tempered and foul mouthed as I found it difficult to believe a young Canadian of that era would be so crass, particularly when her mother was of the upper British classes.
