Description

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?

Review quote

"Wartime creates heroes in unlikely ways. When three dedicated WASPs go wheels-up on a covert rescue mission, what could go wrong? Plenty. But in Mary Davis's typical style, with prayer and gumption beneath their wings, Mrs. Witherspoon and her cohorts will see it through."
--Kristen Heitzmann, bestselling and Christy Award-Winning author of numerous books, including Secrets and The Breath of Dawn

"If you're looking for a WWII story where troops are storming Normandy, world leaders are contemplating their nuclear options, or paradise is decimated, look elsewhere. Mrs. Witherspoon Goes to War shows the softer-yet just as powerful-depiction of that time in history we must never forget. Mary Davis does a spectacular job telling the women's story, the WASP, the Women Airforce Service Pilots. We follow a soldier with a mother's heart, who puts soccer moms to shame as she strives to take matters in her own hands and win the war, one POW at a time."
--Kathleen E. Kovach, award-winning author of Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal

"Mrs. Witherspoon Goes to War is a fun adventure. It really gives the feel of being a female pilot in WWII."
--Suzanne Norquist, author of A Song for Rose and Mending Sarah's Heart.


"...I love this story... I appreciated the detail about the planes that to me balances important information with avoiding the glazed-eye effect on non-aviation enthusiasts."--Becky Durost Fish, freelance editor
