Publisher's Summary

Lisbeth Douglas works as a pilot, mechanic, and flight instructor. As a lady flyer in the 1930s, she works in a male-dominated profession. Fearful of ridicule, she keeps her dream of becoming a test pilot a secret. A cocky airplane salesman arrives in Saplingville and sets up shop at the airport. He steals her heart, but will never take possession of her dreams.

Paul Williams is more comfortable designing airplanes than flying them. To please his father, he takes a job as an airplane salesman. His boss sends him to the deep South, where he meets a ravishing daredevil of a woman. His heart takes a nosedive at the first sight of her. How can he give up his controlling ways and let her soar?

Yassssssss!!

You know you have a good book when the very masculine voice that is Dawson McBride can deliver a wonderful female persona as well as a charismatic male counterpart. This book was awesome.

It's set in the barely disguised misogynistic past when women needed to be seen and not heard. Our Lady Flyer was not having any of that! This was a great story and a wonderful historical reminder of the genesis of the aviation industry.
