Flying Solo: An Unconventional Aviatrix Navigates Turbulence in Life by Jeanette Vaughan is the story of Nora Broussard Greenwood, married at age 18 to a man incapable of love. Raising four children in the early 1960s in Catholic New Orleans, leaves little choices for women of Nora’s social standing. Feeling trapped, Nora decides to take flying lessons, only to fall in love with the instructor. The liaison leads to a pregnancy and the story revolves around how Nora deals with the situation. Lots of social commentary for the times.
There are a few anachronisms and grammatical errors. But, if you enjoy a feminist-in-the-making, star-crossed romance, or prevailing over adversity, ignore these, and enjoy Nora Broussard Greenwood’s story. I kept turning the pages to see how she resolved issues and the final outcome.
