The Spitfire Girls Fly To Victory (Transworld, April 2020), the latest novel from saga author Jenny Holmes, follows a brave team of female pilots in the Air Transport Auxiliary. Bobbie, Mary and Jean are Atta Girls, flying planes between bases. New pilot Viv is surprised at how dangerous the work is, and her Canadian background clashes with the girls' British sensibilities. But when life on the ground leaves them as vulnerable as in the air, can the girls find the courage to stick together and carry on?
Jenny’s links with Yorkshire, where she lives, date back through many generations. She draws on her family’s experiences for her novels: her mother served in the Land Army during WWII, her aunts were pharmacists and shop-workers, and her grandfather worked as a village blacksmith and pub landlord. Jenny also writes children’s books as Jenny Oldfield, and her books have been adapted for the BBC and ITV.
