The BarnstormerJane Lewis  Narrator: Dawson McBrideGenre: HISTORICAL

Review 5 stars In'Dtale Magazine

Frankie Howard is an aerobatic pilot working with his best friends in rural Saplingville, Georgia during the late 1930's.  He flies small groups of passengers to various destinations, he gives flying lessons, and he offers group rides over the town on the weekends.  One of his best friends is Victor Douglas, older brother of Ruth Ann Douglas.  Ruth Ann has been flirting with Frankie and other young men around town.  Her behavior is immature and flighty, as if she can't make up her mind to like or to hate Frankie. Naturally, he is confused and they argue often.  When Ruth Ann goes away to acting school in Atlanta, Frankie figures she is a lost cause, and marries the first woman who shows interest in him.  
This audiobook evokes a simpler time, where family is an essential part of life, and people spend quality time caring for each other.  This story is set at a time when women are gaining more independence and wanting to be educated beyond the role of wife and mother.  The pacing is just right for this audiobook, and the narrator does an excellent job of conveying the atmosphere of this era.  
Dawson McBride offers the perfect voice for this story!  Put on some comfortable slippers, grab a soft blanket, and relax into this audiobook.  Picture a favorite uncle telling this tale.  His voice is deep and rich, and as smooth as silk, and sets the mood for this story.  His narration includes many little nuances that help define each character.  His pacing conveys the mood of the story perfectly.  The production quality of this audiobook is high and there aren't any unexpected noises on the recording.  This book is a delightful listen!
nD'tale Magazine4 StarsSet in Saplingville, Georgia, during the 1930's, "The Lady Flyer" delivers a captivating tale of grit, determination, and pure stubbornness, as Lisbeth Douglas fights to make a name for herself in a profession that is dominated by men, many of whom believe women have no place around aircraft, let alone flying them. Lisbeth is different. She's been trained as an aircraft mechanic by her coworker, and she was taught to fly by her brother who was a military fighter pilot. Lisbeth wishes to be like her idol, Amelia Earhart, and is willing to do anything she can to make it happen. When Yankee, Paul Williams, arrives at their small airport and uses it as the base of his operations, sparks fly between him and Lisbeth, but will his dismissive attitude towards her skills and dreams of being a pilot change? Or will his disbelief in her abilities extinguish the sparks before they have chance to catch fire?
Jane Lewis has crafted a truly engaging tale. Lisbeth is a strong heroine, her determination admirable. The gender-bias she faces seems historically accurate, and many a reader will be able to relate to it. The historical information about aircraft in the story is interesting, although a little overly detailed in some places. The chemistry between Paul and Lisbeth fairly crackles; readers will root for them to work things out. The story feels a little rushed in some places, and other spots could use a break indication, as one paragraph doesn't immediately follow what's come before. Besides that, "The Lady Flyer" is an enjoyable story that will leave readers with a smile on their faces.Katy Nielsen
