Author Event - Pamela Bauer Mueller - The Sky is My Home

Pamela Bauer Mueller will join us to discuss and sign copies of her new book The Sky is My Home

The latest in Pamela Bauer Mueller’s string of inspiring historical novels brings an unforgettable modern heroine to vivid life. Diminutive Hazel Raines logged 6,400 flight hours during her 20 years of flying.  During World War II, she flew in Europe with England’s Royal Air Force.  In the U.S. she flew as a WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilot) and then with the Third Air Force during the Korean War.  She learned Portuguese to train pilots for Brazil’s Air Ministry, and later became a recruiter and advisor for the Women’s Army Corps.

Award-winning author Pamela Bauer Mueller believes a brighter future will be sparked by the true-life stories of Americans who have shaped our country’s history. In her latest novel, she invites us to visit the more recent past, when the struggle for equality and recognition clashed with the realities of a modern world war.

“I have always been captivated by history—its broad sweep and its intimate corners,” Mueller writes.  “History is a connection between the present and the past. 20th Century history provides relevant tales of dedication and resourcefulness that are especially significant to modern readers.”

The thrilling adventures that await you in this inspiring book include:

  • Her harrowing crash into an idyllic British village
  • Personal encounters with remarkable figures like Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart and Lady Astor
  • Unforgettable experiences of a young Georgia woman as she explores rural England, steamy Texas, and political Brazil during its presidential elections…and the hostile skies of war-torn Europe.          

Pamela Bauer Mueller has spent two decades bringing significant American men and women to stimulating life for her readers. Like several of Mueller’s previous heroines, Hazel Jane Raines rejected the constraints of traditional female roles. In following her dreams and passion, she challenged a rigid male-dominated military structure to show herself equal to male counterparts–or better!

Pamela Bauer Mueller, winner of three Georgia Author of the Year awards, has based The Sky Is My Home on extensive research and interviews. Hazel’s personal journals and poignant letters to her mother in Macon, Georgia, provide rare glimpses into a world and society that’s now gone, but never forgotten. Cinematic dialogue, historic events and unforgettable characters sparkle like sunlight on the English Channel.
