From the author of The House by the Lake comes a powerful novel of friendship, love, and valor in a time of war.
At the height of World War II, Eva Scott's dream comes true. Accepted into the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), she leaves home and the man she loves for grueling training in Texas, ultimately landing at formidable Camp Davis in North Carolina.
Vastly outnumbered by men and amid contempt, discrimination, and sabotage, Eva and her closest friends remain loyal to their mission and to each other, determined to prove themselves capable women pilots. But then a fatal mission sends Eva's dream crashing to earth . . .
Now, decades later, Eva still doesn't have answers about the night that changed her life. When she finds herself embroiled in the fight to get military recognition for the WASP, she's forced to confront the past, and to make a decision that could forever change her future.
Thrilling and inspiring, Beyond the Horizon is a tribute to the brave women who risked their lives for their country--and who remained unrecognized for thirty years.
