Thank you for the great review. Your review was very touching. This seems to be a very interesting book which does focus on women trying to prove themselves in a male dominated world. I will add this one to my list

There are times in our lives when we encounter challenges that, for some, could become seemingly too insurmountable. Overcoming the odds - which could be at times based on gender, colour, race, social status, religious beliefs, or any other circumstance unduly or unjustly hampered by prevailing biases, prejudices or stereotypes - would indeed be a great feat. You've just made this book seem to have the answers on how people could be empowered to do what they were initially thought not to be capable of. Thank you for your insightful review.

Wow! You liked this book enough to put it on your top five list says a lot. Jenny is a woman stunt pilot back in the 1920's. It is interesting that the author used historical facts correctly and that she even captured the New York way of talking in the book. Good review!

What a great review! To end up on the top 5 favorite books that you've read no less. Good to see that the author had the time period down authentically. Science fiction in the future- it's easy whose to say what they will have then. But, when writing of a certain era it is good to have the facts straight and the readers may even learn a little on the way.
