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.

A Great concept, but ...
3 stars By Iola, Jun 28 2015
I thought there were good and not-so-good things about A Flying Affair. The writing was polished. I liked the way the plot provided insight into the motivations and achievements of early women aviators (aviatrixes?), of the way aviation caught the imagination of the common people. 

But there were more issues than things to recommend. Yes, the writing was polished but there was far too much telling, too many instances of 1920's slang, too many named characters. There was too much plot and too many subplots. 

And there was no Christian element. Sure, the characters say grace once or twice and I think I recall Mittie making a reference to the man upstairs, but I'd classify this as a clean read rather than Christian fiction.

Overall, A Flying Affair didn't fly for me. Thanks to NetGalley and FaithWords for providing a free ebook for review.
