Girl With Wings by Jennifer BradleyJessica Mackay has one dream – to be a pilot.
Jessica lives on her family farm
at Narromine, New South Wales, in the 1920s and 30s– the best place for a would-be pilot. Her father developed a passion for flying in Egypt during World War I, and even though women were among the first people to take on the challenge of the skies, Jessica’s ambitions are not supported by everyone, most notably her
grandfather who has firm ideas about ‘a woman’s place’ in the world.
Jennifer Bradley’s story of a young girl’s passion for flying is based firmly on actual events in the fledgling Australian aviation industry.
The message in this book is that girls can do anything!
