This was a fantastic, true to life although fictional account of the amazing women pilots of the WASP during WWII If you enjoy wartime fiction, I highly recommend this book. Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC of this outstanding book I absolutely adored it What a beautiful story of the women who trained as WASPs in WWII I enjoyed reading about these courageous women and their sacrifices made during the war.The way the novel was written was gripping and so difficult to put down I loved the leading lady, Eva, and her attraction to her dear friend, Harry I absolutely loved their dynamic and was rooting for them against all odds Eva s story is so moving and I appreciated reading about this snippet of our history 5 stars Beyond the Horizon is a fantastic historical fiction novel This book opens up with Eva s teenage son excited to let Eva know that there are congressional hearing to get the woman fighter pilots the recognition they deserved from their service in World War 2 I enjoyed this book and I couldn t put it down Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and Net galley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review ARC received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I m a fairly new reader of historical fiction but it is quickly becoming a favourite of mine While I typically like to read books set earlier in history than this I can t say no to books with female characters that defy expectations You can t get much defiant than a group of women choosing to become pilots during WW2 when they were significantly outnumbered by men I was completely enamoured and invested in Eva s journey towards justice and recognition for herself and the women who also flew for their country Like all the best historical fiction books I ve read Beyond the Horizon was incredibly vivid and descriptive I ve never flown a plane, I ve never experienced the Texan heat, I ve never travelled across the country in a train for 24 hours but Ella Carey helped me experience all these things I felt the highest highs and lowest lows right along with Eva.I had a feeling this book was going to be heavy on the emotions so I read it alongside other, lighter books but before long this one won out and it was the only one I found myself reading I was sad at the end and sad for the end I would never have guessed at what the truth was Eva was searching for I am predominately a romance reader so I was thrilled to find a little romance in my fiction.This was my first Ella Carey book and I am already excited for the journey I ll go on when I read the next one.
