Daughters of the Night Sky by Aimie K. Runyan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was one of those few and far between, one of a kind books, that entrenches itself in one's soul and mind. The book stars, Katya, a member of one of Russia's elite bombing regiments, consisting solely of women pilots and navigators in the 1940's, during a time of war. Author Aimie Runyan does such an exceptional job in detailing Katya's pride in country, sisterhood with her fellow women pilots, and doubts and insecurities about the family she left behind, and a husband serving elsewhere on the front lines, that Katya does not seem to be a character at all, but someone you would choose as a best friend. This was one of those books that you must see through to the end, but slowly, so that you can savor it until the last drop. Well done, Aimie Runyan!
