Flying Time: A Novel

Back home after her first year of college, Clare Carlyle longs for more excitement than her summer job at the library can provide, but all that is about to change. After discovering a curious World War II memento at a local flea market, Clare suddenly finds herself on a time-twisting adventure that takes her back to the era when the young men and women of the Greatest Generation held the very future of mankind in their hands. Striving to fit in and do her part, Clare’s courage is tested as she experiences life during World War II firsthand, from the home front to the front lines. Clare’s globe-spanning journey takes her from neighborhood USO dances and New York’s famed Stage Door Canteen to entertaining the troops in the South Pacific. As she fulfills her destiny, Clare learns lessons of friendship, love, and loss that no history book could ever teach.
