Phyllis Marie

by Terry Row

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Phyllis Marie stood slim, petite, and pretty, with stunning green eyes that became more emerald with each passing year, her porcelain-white skin turned rosy-cheeked from the cold Idaho wind. She turned twenty-four on the twelfth of September. Six thousand miles away in England, Perry received a brand new Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, wrapped like a birthday present, her two-tone fuselage in olive green above and drab gray below, sporting the newly modified national insignia—a white star and crossbar against a blue field. On the tail, above her serial number—230713 in yellow, to match the rudder—she carried the 390th insignia, a black J against a white Square. He named her the Phyllis Marie.
Description
Phyllis Marie is an ambitious novel that makes a powerful statement about perseverance, courage, and the power of love and loyalty in a chaotic world. I was caught up in the complexity of the intertwined plots; the emotional and religious connections among families through the generations; the force of Perry’s dream and the strength of his character; and Phyllis Marie, who binds them all together. The author makes Perry's dream of flying my own, and I am with him every time he takes off—every time he soars, inspired, and every time he begins to lose hope. His wife Phyllis Marie is enchanting in her mischievousness, her curiosity and fearlessness, her warmth and facility for fun. Terry Row has an amazing capacity for understanding the human condition and portraying it in the most effortless and compelling terms--with simple honesty. —Kathryn Lynn Davis, New York Times best selling author of Too Deep For Tears and Somewhere Lies the Moon
