Welcome to World War II. Horrific, fast, furious. America's survival was uncertain. If you have an interest in the American home front, gender equality, and the building of Tibbet's famous Enola Gay, you will enjoy Ginny Cooper's War. Young Ginny Cooper, fresh from Radcliffe College, joins millions of women staffing industrial jobs to keep the nation producing the weapons needed for victory. At a huge bomber plant near Omaha, Nebraska, Ginny encounters not only gender conflict, but also the deadly tentacles of an enemy cell- a cell that take vicious aim at the plant, America's beloved president, and Ginny herself. Amid the chaos, Ginny discovers unexpected love. On the other side of the world, Colonel Paul Tibbets is fighting his way across Europe and Africa on a course that will lead to Omaha and the Enola Gay. As Tibbets flies the Enola Gay to Japan on a mission no one was sure he'd survive, Ginny finds herself on the run from an evil that's been right in front of her all along. The thrilling climax will leave readers breathless and wanting justice... and McDowell delivers. Ginny Cooper's War is the story of an extraordinary young woman who came to Omaha to do her part in the great struggle. Little did she anticipate the important role she would play. If you do not know the names Jimmy Doolittle, Enola Gay, Paul Tibbets, or Glenn L. Martin, you can meet and appreciate them in Ginny Cooper's War.
