Review: A Wing and a Prayer by Julie Lessman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


She’s dead-set on giving everything to the war overseas…
Even if it means losing everything in a war of the heart.

A street orphan abused and abandoned by an alcoholic father at age five, Gabriella (Gabe) O’Connor has never let a man stand in her way yet. So when a handsome flight officer thwarts her plans to become a WASP—Women Air Force Service Pilot—she’s determined to join the war effort anyway she can. Her chance comes when she “borrows” foreign correspondent credentials from the Boston Herald—where her father is the editor—to stow away on a medical ship to the front.

Lieutenant Alex Kincaid pegs Gabe O’Connor as trouble the moment she steps foot on Avenger Field as a WASP cadet. As the eldest brother of a boy whose jaw Gabe broke in grade school, Alex is familiar with her reputation as both a charismatic ringleader and a headstrong hooligan who’s challenged every male and nun from grade school to college. As her WASP flight instructor, Alex eventually expels Gabe when she pulls a dangerous stunt. But when he is an evacuation pilot in France eight months later, their lives intertwine once again, exposing them to a danger as perilous as the German tanks roaming the Reichswald Forest: a love that neither expects.

My Review: 

I have enjoyed previous releases from Julie Lessman in the past and was excited to finally get my hands on the first book from her The Cousins O’Connor series, A Wing and a Prayer. My only question after reading it is, what took me so long to dive into this story? Oh my goodness, what a great start to this series. I adored getting to know Gabe and Alex. I loved reading about their adventures, while being inspired with the lessons of love and redemption. What a beautiful read.

I am giving A Wing and a Prayer a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romance, particularly during the World War II era. I am looking forward to the next installment from The Cousins O’Connor series, A Hope and a Prayer.

I received a digital copy of Julie Lessman’s A Wing and a Prayer from the author, but had no obligation to write a review, nor a positive one. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
