This story was absolute perfection, and I can't decide who I'm most in love with after finishing: The 1940's heroine Marian, whose only goal is to be a pilot in a world where females are preferred to stay home; her artistic twin brother, Jamie, orphaned with her as an infant; or perhaps their best friend, Caleb, who raises himself to love Marian and Jamie in a way only he can. Perhaps it's the WWII friends, Sarah the artistic patron, or the pilot couple Eddie and Ruth. Or maybe it's the disgraced actress in 2014, Hadley, charged with bringing Marian to the screen, despite how little is really known about her and her relationships. Regardless, each character is full of life, complexity, and honesty, and their relationships, histories, and adventures have left me missing them desperately since the moment I closed this book.
