Lunch and Learn Lilian Nattel
Nattel has brilliantly blended fact with fiction in this unique, thrilling, sometimes terrifying novel based on the life and death of Lily Litvyak, a female Soviet flying ace and fighter pilot shot down behind German lines in the World War II. Lily Litvyak is no ones idea of a fighter pilot: a tiny, dimpled teenager with golden curls who lied about her age in order to fly. But in the crucible of the air war against the German invaders, she becomes that rare thing a flying ace, glorified at home and around the world as the White Lily of Stalingrad. The real Lily disappeared in combat in August 1943, and the facts of her life are slim, but they have inspired Lilian Nattels indelible portrait of a courageous young woman driven by family secrets to become an unlikely war hero.
Born in Montreal and now living in Toronto, LILIAN NATTEL is bestselling author of The River Midnight, The Singing Fire and Web of Angels.
