Blackbirds is the first in an exciting new series from Garry Ryan.
When young Sharon Lacey travels from Canada to England in the spring of 1940 in search of the father she never knew, she finds herself called to participate in a much larger and more dangerous mission. For at eighteen, she is a gifted flier in an England desperate for pilots to fend off the impending attack from Hitler's Luftwaffe. In the months that follow, Sharon will be tested in ways that will affect the rest of her life—should she survive.
With Blackbirds, award-winning mystery novelist Garry Ryan turns his hand towards historical fiction, vividly evoking the fear and uncertainty of wartime England, as well as the spirit and comaraderie and adventure sared by the men—and women—who stepped forward to defend it.
Blackbirds is now available.
