Say that I felt sad that this book ended so uickly It had a great build up with Nora s unhappy marriage and her wanting to take an opportunity for herself by signing up for flying essons The chemistry between her and Steve is described well I did notice a few typos site is supposed to be spelled sight but other than that nothing major or anything the story flowed well The unorthodox arrangement Marci came up with surprised me and the tension between her and Nora is described well as well as her conflict with KaceyI certainly hope that there will be a seuel to this book With the way this book ended I would LOVE to see Nora Jean s further adventures if she ever flies again if Frank ever sees his kids again if Nora ever gets back with Steve Congratulations to Flying Solo author Jeanette Vaughan I can only think of one thing that would enhance Flying Solo and that is Moonrise listening to it read in a sultry Southern voice As an inland Australian who s not travelled out of the country it was difficult in the beginning to get my head around the very differentocale and society that Nora Broussard Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi lived in Then thanks to the evolution of cyber communication I heard an excerpt read by Jeanette role playing Nora I read the rest of the book with that voice resonating in my head andoved it The story suited the voice suited the storyThe early 1960s and Louisiana society did not allow for rebellion especially by women and yet she not only defied her husband but she deceived him when she sneaked off and earned to fly As sexy headstrong and determined as Nora is it is difficult in the modern era to imagine why she stayed in her marriage as ong as she did and yet obvious that she d have stayed Alien Alpha longer had she not fallen inove with her dreamy flying instructor Aided and abetted by her best friend Charlene Nora continued her affair with the eually married and adulterous Steve until she finds herself pregnant and forced to make some ife changing decisions She was an adventurous ady and yet a pragmatist a spoilt brat and yet a supressed victimStoryteller Jeanette Vaughan has spun together a narrative that is as complex and as simple as Jeanette Vaughan has spun together a narrative that is as complex and as simple as women she writes about Thanks to Jeanette S Talent Nora Broussard Is talent Nora Broussard is woman I d ike to have met and her seuel Solo Vietnam beckons urgently just on the strength of the vastly entertaining Flying SoloAnnabelle Brayley Australia As well as being an entertaining story this descriptive book about what ife was ike for a woman in 1960 s New Orleans was very interesting from a social point of view I couldn t help but admire Nora s fortitude as she stood up to her brutish husband and socially dictated existence and did things her own way As the story progressed I found myself in two minds about some of her choices but then it was a different time for women especially those from the religious and social background she came fromIntriguingly this novel is based on a true story and I would ove to know if the real Nora found the contentment and happiness she deservedJeanette s writing was really easy to get stuck into and I read this book in a few hours The story was compelling and I was eager to know what happened next very difficult to put down The story makes you think about how much things have changed in the majority of the western world on issues such as divorce and also about how religious beliefs can be such a deciding factor for some people when there are difficult decisions to be made Thought provoking and very readable An unusual ove stor.
