Also by Margaret Mayhew. Look for the Silver Lining. Music by Jerome Kern, words by Buddy DeSylva. At the beginning of the war the WAAF was still very much in its infancy – an unknown and untried quantity.

This is a fictional story about some of those women.

BlueBirds" by Margaret Mayhew is a great book. The book opens during the beginning of WW 2 England, when women heard the called to defend thier country durning in her darkest hour,by joining the WAAF.

Ken wore his best and only suit and Winnie’s mother had altered her own wedding dress to fit Winnie and made bridesmaids’ frocks for Ruth and Laura. The church was full of villagers and Ken made his. vows without coughing once, while Winnie spoke hers in a quiet but sure voice. Afterwards there was tea at the village hall, with sandwiches and bridge rolls and a two-tier wedding cake with a cardboard base because of the shortages. Gran stayed at home by the range. When it was all over they were driven in a shiny hired car to Ipswich where Ken had booked a room in a hotel.

Felicity is determined to prove the worth of her 'Bluebirds'. There's Anne, who loves to dance but finds herself peeling vegetables in the station kitchens. Winnie, longs to work on the aeroplanes themselves but meets rejection at every turn.

In 1939, a strangely assorted group of young women - barmaids mixing with secretaries and debutantes - bump along the road to RAF Colston in the back of a three-ton lorry. This story tells how, as the war progressed, these first WAAFs supported their pilots with courage, loyalty, and often love.
  • I read all the books in this series, and loved them all. This one was not available from any library in my county and in neighboring counties and states. I ordered it used, and it looked brand new. After reading it, I loaned it to a friend, and when I got it back, I donated it to my library to add to their collection. They gladly accepted it.

  • Excellent! Highly recommended!!! Wonderful story of women during WWII and the guys they loved!! Well worth my time and money!!! I will now read her other books - for sure. Another great WWII story is the award winning novel - The Partisan by William Jarvis. Both books deserve A++++++++

  • This was a wonderful book. Did not want it to end. It was full of great characters that made you feel that you were there with them. I wish this was made into a mini series as I heard it almost was. Its was about 4 girls from different background and what happened to them in ww2 in England. You will laugh and cry with them for loves lost and new loves found. Just loved it.

  • Excellent and timely delivery
