Morgan Glennon often finds living with three women, his mother, grandmother and aunt makes him feel as if he is drowning in a flood of chintz and feminine fussing, but he would not trade them for anything. Desiring to make his mother proud, he leaves for college and becomes a Navy pilot to help in the war. After hearing about the events of Pearl Harbor and the call for trained pilots, Morgan wants to do all he can for his country. Leaving family and friends behind in Oklahoma, he embarks on an adventure he has dreamed of ever since he was a small boy.

Georgia Jean Carter always wondered how her mother, Cordelia Carter Boudreaux, ever came up with that name, then again her mother always had an imagination. When Georgia turns six and they leave Florida to Chicago, her life changes in many ways, and she lets her imagination soar.

Georgia is fascinated with thoughts of flying. Just watching the plane take flight, she knows her life will never be the same as she aims for the skies. While working as a waitress to make money to learn to fly she meets Roger Welles, a principal flight instructor. Roger falls in love with Georgia but she does not know if she can give him her whole heart. Georgia is determined to pull her weight in the war, as she joins WASP and learns everything about flying. In the process of time she meets Morgan and forms an attraction to him. Morgan loves Georgia but with the war raging no one knows the outcome. After he is sent to the Pacific, Georgia can only pray he will stay safe and return home to her again.

On Wings of the Morning is a poignant story that is completely amazing. I could feel the thrill and excitement emitted by Morgan and Georgia as they sought to fly the skies. Their family life, and everything they experience, while growing up is beautifully told. Marie Bostwick's voice allows the reader to feel the intensity of the war; of the effects it has on the trainees preparing for war, not to mention the ordeals with Morgan in the Pacific. The reader sees both sides, with those at war, and the families left behind, not to mention the aftermath when they return home. This incredible rare read brings a happy tear to the eye and a special sensation to the heart.
