Thanks so much to She Writes Press for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
SKY QUEEN – Judy Kundert (Releasing June 18th, 2019)
This immediately jumped out at me because one of my best friends is a pilot and I love hearing all about her trips. I know her role is a little different in this case, but nonetheless, still something that makes me think of her 🙂
Here’s the synopsis:
It’s 1967, and Katherine Roebling is a Chicago-based stewardess caught between the hold of highflying travel and the call of her Native American ancestors just as the women’s movement is taking the US by storm. As she vacillates between an ever-present mystical ancestral feather and her alluring stewardess life of excitement and travel, she embarks on a journey from one adventure to the next–each episode bringing her closer to her predestined calling. A chance meeting with a college student from Athens, Greece at a Chicago Playboy Mansion Press Party and her visit to the Oracle of Delphi intertwine with Katherine’s discovery of the treasure inside herself. Ultimately, she gains wings that allow her to glide over society’s barriers; she abandons the so-called glamorous life she’s been living, creates her own path, and embarks upon a new career at the Smithsonian in DC–one that will take her on a miraculous experience of personal growth and uncharted paths.
