      My newest novel, Daughters of the Night Sky is a complete departure from my earlier works, but the stories of the long-forgotten female pilots on the Russian front in World War Two deserved to be told. There are so many similar missing pages in our history books, particularly women's contributions to the war efforts, from this era that I may. Get this from a library! Daughters of the Night Sky. [Aimie K Runyan] -- A novel inspired by the most celebrated regiment in the Red Army about a woman's sacrifice, courage, and love in a time of war. Russia, Katya Ivanova is a young pilot in a far-flung military.
