A WASP Goes Above the Call of Duty to Free Captive American Soldiers
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Peggy Witherspoon, a widow, mother, and pilot flying for the Women’s Airforce Service in 1944 clashes with her new reporting officer. Army Air Corp Major Howie Berg was injured in combat and is now stationed at Bolling Field in Washington D.C. Most of Peggy’s jobs are safe, predictable, and she can be home each night with her three daughters—until a cargo run to Cuba alerts her to American soldiers being held captive there, despite Cuba being an “ally.” Will Peggy go against orders to help the men—even risk her own life?

    Published by Christena Kaufman on Mar 08, 2022

    Mrs. Witherspoon has list much in her life including her husband. World War ll is raging and she is determined, as a seasoned pilot to make a difference. How will that ever happen? There is a lot I was unaware of that happened during the war. This book is exciting and moves at a quick pace as the women pilots struggle to be respected and recognized for their strengths. A wondetful read, in my opinion.

    Dont underestimate Mrs. Witherspoon !

    Published by S. Harris on Feb 18, 2022

    The women of WWII amaze me - whether mom at home feeding children using a ration book or as pilots that flew pulling targets for men to shoot at! This book is a wonderful picture of a very headstrong, caring, brave woman. I expected a lot of technical details but it was written so well that I got the important details without the boring part. This book inspired me.. I look forward to reading another Mary Davis book. I'm also planning a trip to the WASP museum in Sweetwater, Texas.

    Mrs. Witherspoon Goes to War---Enlightening Historical Fiction!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Feb 14, 2022

    I was familiar with the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) who were active during World War II but this book has given me a new perspective of this group of brave, competent, and often under-estimated women. Being a WASP made women feel like they were contributing to the war effort, and there was no one more determined than the heroine of this book. Peggy Witherspoon's husband had died while fighting in this war, so how better to honor his memory? Author Mary Davis shares a story that is both heartwarming and heart-stopping, and I was completely caught up following Peggy and the other WASPs during a five-month period in 1944. They are involved in a lot of different efforts, but their story takes a serious turn when Mama Bird (Peggy), Brownie, and Nightingale undertake a dangerous mission to free three soldiers who are being held captive in Cuba. What an adventure! Mrs. Witherspoon Goes to War is filled with excitement, danger, and suspense, but we're also given a glimpse of the many emotions that Peggy experiences during this eventful time. Davis offers a poignant portrayal of Peggy's grief, frustration, and loss of faith, but the promise of romance offers her new hope. Will Peggy discover a new purpose and restored faith in the waning days of World War II? It's evident that the author spent a lot of time researching this book and I recommend it to all who enjoy historical fiction. Mrs. Witherspoon Goes to War is a great addition to the Heroines of WWII series from Barbour Publishing. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.
