Enjoyable tale of history
I read "She Flew Bombers" when it was released in 2012. I learned so much about the WASPS and their role in WW2. When I learned it was released on audio, I thought it would be great to relive the trials and tribulations of Violet. I felt the cadence of the audio was slow at the start but then I got in to the rhythm and liked the pace. Ms. Sloane does a great job changing her voice to match the characters. Thoroughly enjoyable.
It's important to share the important roles women have had in history. I found the story of the WASPS fascinating.
Enunciation, voices = great!
