On Wings of the Morning (Paperback)
Marie Bostwick delivers a captivating novel of soul mates discovering each other as the country faces its greatest challenge. . .
Morgan Glennon's destiny points straight up into Oklahoma's clear, blue sky. It's been that way since he was four years old, imagining the famous flier father he's never met. Morgan leaves college to enlist as a Navy pilot, and his whole world suddenly changes when America goes to war. Watching his friends fall in battle, robs Morgan of the joy he always felt in the air. It will take one very unusual woman to help him get it back. . .
Georgia Jean Carter learned early never to rely on a man for anything but trouble. Airplanes are different: they take a girl places most boyfriends can't. Remarkably, the war makes it possible for Georgia to do her part as a pilot. Flying with the WASPs brings a special sense of belonging--yet there's something missing that Georgia doesn't recognize until a brief encounter sets her dreaming about a young flyboy she barely knows. . .

“ON WINGS OF THE MORNING still ranks as one of the most beautiful and most romantic stories I have read in a long time.

This quality, together with her obvious delight in her historical setting, make for an unforgettable story.” – Lynn Spencer, All About Romance
“This is a gentle and touching love story, a sequel to Fields of Gold, the story of Morgan's mother, but it works excellent as a standalone novel. It's a book to savor and enjoy.” – CurledUp.com
