New Year's Eve, 1940: Evie Chase, the beautiful debutante daughter of an adoring RAF commander, gazes out at the sky as swing music drifts from the ballroom. With bombs falling nightly in London, she resolves that the coming year will bring more than just dances and tennis matches. She is determined to do her bit for the war effort. 2nd January, 1941: Evie curses her fashionable heels as they skid on the frozen ground of her local airfield. She is here to volunteer for 'The Beauty Chorus', the female pilots who fly much-needed planes to bases across the country. Soon, she is billeted in a tiny country cottage, sharing with an anxious young mother and a naive teenager.Thrown together by war, these three very different women soon become friends, confidantes and fellow adventuresses. But as they take to the skies, they will also face hardship, prejudice and tragedy. Can their new-found bond survive their darkest hours?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A great read... The Beauty Chorus is a story of love and adventure, of loss and pain, and heroism. I can already see the movie. * Daily Mail *
Tragedy, romance and fortitude... the book soars as if it has a pair of Merlin engines strapped to its covers * Spectator *
Authentic and moving * The Lady *

“the beauty chorus”

This book came along at just the right time for me. A few weeks, heck a few days, earlier and I would have given up on it for its pretty slow start. But it picks up eventually and turns into a rather entertaining... More
