This was just an okay book.  It could have been really good, but it was a little wonky.  The ending was really sudden and left me feeling unfulfilled.

The background story of Maddy and her time as an RAF pilot was interesting.  And her relationships with those from her past and the present were interesting.  Maddy was a quirky lady and had a great sense of humor.  There were moments when I was chuckling.

The home health investigator was an absolute jerk and I was praying she would get her "just dues."

Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Outstanding Historical novel about a very thoughtful and lovely elder lady named Maddie,who is definitely the star of this book.
She and other gals like her flew planes loaded with bombs,during WWII,but failed to get the recognition that was accorded to the men.
She agonized her whole life about a plane that got hit by enemy fire that she was piloting and crashed into the ocean,killing all aboard except her.
She married,had one daughter and lost her in childbirth at an early age.Later in life she meets up.with her ex son-in-law,again after 40 years,who had never re married.
The story goes back and forth,somewhat between earlier yrs and current ones,but it's all good.
This is a grand book and one I 
would recommend to all.who love a good Historical novel..

Maddy's Wings by Jan Porter
I was disappointed with this book . Had expected the story to be much better than it was , there was a lot of scope but just didnt materialise.

Maddy's Wings has a great synopsis. It sounds like it is going to be a tale of redemption and historical fiction. 

But the book itself is very poorly written. It took me a very long time to read this, as it is FULL of spelling and grammatical mistakes. The scenes change very quickly in a way that is confusing, and the dialogue is clunky. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

An Arc copy. For readers of historical fiction, a heartfelt story of elderly telling their stories and dealing with long ago mistakes. Porter also gives us as readers glimpses of the time periods that puts today's society in perspective. Highly recommend to historical fiction readers.
