Read from April 04 to 07, 2011

This is a fictional tale that appears to be loosely based on a historical female in aviation, Chubbie Miller, but not all of it is about her or about aviation...

It has a back and forth narrative between Sarah Carson and her reporter boyfriend (he doesn't stay her boyfriend, mind you), Daniel Anderson. (Funny, the real aviatrix was married to a reporter at a young age.) More of the book is from Daniel's POV, I think. This was a disappointment for me. I didn't care about him or his reporting when it had nothing to do with aviation, nor did I care about his love affair with a Scottish actress. I simply didn't care about him. I cared about Sarah.

Susan (aka Just My Op) That's disappointing, knowing all the trouble and expense that this book cost you.

Tara Chevrestt Yes, I thought I could turn around and resell and found myself out only 15 bucks or so, but the isbn number doesn't work anywhere. The book isn't even listed on Amazon and I have never sold anything on Ebay.
