Aunt Sookie & Me by Michael Scott Garvin
"I received a copy of this novel through a giveaway. I instantly fell in love with the characters. The plot was well written and well thought out. A period piece. It takes you back in time. Hilarious but at times emotional. I enjoyed it thoroughly. "

“I wanted to say, 'Wait—I am not sure I want to do this—I don’t know if I am ready.' I turned my head and saw him climb onto the wing and hop down onto the pavement. He didn’t give me a chance to tell him I hadn’t decided yet whether or not I was going to solo. Didn’t he know I wasn’t a real aviator? I was only a doctor, after all, and doctors weren’t required to solo.
It was too late to tell him anything. I was going flying." (Page 199)”
David B. Crawley, Steep Turn: A Physician's Journey from Clinic to Cockpit
