Summary
"Award-winning author Carla Stewart returns to the 1920s in this vivid historical novel about a female pilot navigating love and life. Daredevil Mittie Humphreys developed her taste for adventure on horseback, on her family's prosperous Kentucky horse farm. But her love of horses is surpassed by her passion for the thrill of the skies, especially since the dashing pilot Ames first took her up in his plane. When handsome British aviator Bobby York offers her flying lessons, he is equally surprised--and beguiled--by Mittie's grit, determination, and talent. Soon, Mittie is competing in cross-country air races, barnstorming, and wing-walking. But when Calista "Peach" Gilson, a charming Southern belle, becomes her rival in both aviation and in love, Mittie must learn to navigate her heart as well as the skies. "--
