This Side of the Sky

Elyse Singleton

Award-winning journalist Elyse Singleton delivers what Essence calls “a gem—the perfect book to curl up with.” Best friends Lilian and Myraleen, two African American women from rural Mississippi, travel to Europe during World War II to act as members of the Women’s Army Corps. During this time of segregation and destruction, both women discover love and heartbreak, triumph and defeat. “[A] poignant story of a seldom-visited side of the war, one that is well-worth knowing.”—Publishers Weekly
