She is catholic, as is her family--and her new lover and his family. Twist and turns presents problems for Nora, things like divorce is disallowed by her church, presuming of course that one should suffer rather than feel free and loved. For this the church levies consequences but rather than continue to live in hell, Nora accepts those consequences and chooses a different and difficult route but she refuses to give up her religion, with a few exceptions that is. I can almost read her mind as she tried to separate her love of flying for the love of being truly loved.
There is some raw language, vulgarity if one wishes, in the first part of this story but without it, the sense of what really took place would be lost.Read more ›

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
“Nora would marry way too young. She was the daughter of New Orleans natives, Nellie Shryock and the late Jack Broussard. As a young girl, Nora spent many an afternoon riding the streetcars up and down Carrollton Avenue while her mother worked at Hotel Dieu Hospital. … Her daydreams often were about the adventures she imagined her gypsy-like, Cajun father must have had riding the riverboats up and down the Mississippi.”
By making the decision to learn to fly, Nora set in motion a new, independent life just as adventurous as she imagined her father’s life had been. Her decisions conflicted with the life that she was supposed to be living as a Catholic wife and mother.
Nora had help in her flight from the oppressive life she was leading to a future with promise. Many of her friends advised her, but after considering their advice, the decisions to do the things she did were hers.
In her quest for independence, she discovers an old family secret that involves her whole life. To learn this secret and how she dealt with her old and new life, read Jeanette’s well-written, believable book.
Jeanette Vaughan is well established as a writer and story teller. She has published in periodicals and professional journals of nursing and also in the genre of fiction. She has written several novels and scripts.Read more ›
