I promised in Tuesday’s post to reveal the new title of the third Velva Jean book.
But first a little about the book itself: Velva Jean Hart has taught herself to drive and taught herself to fly, and by 1944, she has earned her wings as a member of the WASP. As her third adventure begins, Velva Jean flies a B-17 Flying Fortress into Prestwick, Scotland, going in search of her brother and best friend Johnny Clay, who is missing in action. In Scotland, Velva Jean volunteers to fly dangerous top-secret missions for the military into occupied France, but she has no idea just how dangerous these missions will be or what kind of dark and exciting days lie ahead… She will learn to fight and to spy and, after all the work she’s done to “live out there,” she will learn to lose herself in a new identity that’s created for her. She’ll lose her heart as well, and all the while she searches for her brother… Will she find him? And, at the end of it all, will she be able to find herself again?
With that said– are you ready?– we’re calling the book (are you sure you’re ready?)………. Becoming Clementine. It will be released August 30, and, in just a couple weeks, I’ll be revealing the cover here, as well as sharing an excerpt!
