      I recently posted about Leap of Faith, by Kimberly Brubaker then, I have read, and liked, her halfway to the Sky. Leap of Faith was about coming to faith in God. I found no mention of worship, or faith, in this book. I'm giving away much of the plot of this one.

The scheme was set up to keep up a supply of trained aircrew to replace the immense numbers who were giving their lives.
