In "Wings", bestselling author Danielle Steel tells the story of a young woman who fights the odds and becomes a world-renowned aviator. From her family's dusty farmland airstrip near Chicago, the child Cassie O'Malley would look at the planes sitting shimmring in the moonlight. Her First World War veteran father Pat wanted his son to be a pilot, not his reckless red-haired daughter. But ever since she could remember, Cassie had felt the pull of taking to the skies, and her father's partner Nick, fellow air ace and airborne daredevil, was willing to break all the rules to teach her to fly.When Cassie was invited to California to become a test pilot, her record-breaking flights soon made her a media darling. Risking her life, pushing herself to her limits, in a world preparing for the Second World War, she decided to chart her own course and pursue her own destiny whatever it cost her. "Wings" is set in a time of constant change, when the world was on the brink of war and the skies were filled with adventurers, a time when courage and daring forever changed modern-day aviation.
