About The Beauty Chorus

During WW2, 166 women signed up to fly Spitfires and bombers from factories to airfields across Britain. It was an adventure that would cost many their lives.

The fighter pilots nicknamed these glamorous volunteers 'The Beauty Chorus'.

This spellbinding first novel transforms a forgotten piece of history into a sweeping story of romance, friendship and wartime glamour.

As beguiling as Victoria Hislop, Rosie Alison or Sadie Jones, let Kate Lord Brown carry you up and away.
