Wings by Danielle Steel
In Wings, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel tells the story of a young woman who fights the odds and becomes a world-renowned aviator.

Cassie was stunned by the beauty of the night, and how peaceful it was to be at the controls in a night sky full of stars. It was like being on the edge of the world, in an endless universe. She had never felt so small or so free and so alive as at that moment.

From a house on the edge of her family’s dusty farmland airstrip near Chicago, the child Cassie O’Malley would sneak into the night to look at the planes shimmering in the moonlight. Her First World War veteran father, Pat, wanted his son to be a pilot, not his reckless red-haired daughter. But it was Cassie who had the gift. Ever since she could remember, Cassie felt the pull of getting in a cockpit and taking to the skies. Observing all the whole was her father’s junior partner, Nick ‘Stick’ Galvin, a fellow war ace and airborne daredevil. Nick would become her confidant and best friend, willing to break all the rules to teach her to fly, knowing that the greatest gift he could give her was the freedom of flying.

When California entrepreneur Desmond Williams sees Cassie in a local airshow, he invites her to California where she breaks new ground in aviation by becoming a test pilot. Soon Cassie’s record-breaking flights make her a media darling. Drawn by Desmond’s plans for her to break Amelia Earhart’s records, but determined to avoid her mistakes, Cassie trains for the remarkable journey around a world preparing for the Second World War. From public appearances to press conferences, easily used by both her husband and the press, Cassie realizes that there is more to life than making headlines. Risking her life, pushing herself to her limits, she decides to chart her own course and pursue her own destiny, whatever it costs 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.
