Carla Stewart, in her new book, “A Flying Affair book coverA Flying Affair” published by FaithWords takes us into the life of  Mittie Humphreys.

From the back cover:  Ever since Mittie Humphreys agreed to join dashing barnstorming pilot Ames for a joyride in his airplane, her lifelong love of horses has been surpassed by one thing–a longing for the skies. It seems she’s not the only one–with Charles Lindbergh making his victory tour in the Spirit of St. Louis, aviation fever is spreading across the country. Mittie knows flying is the perfect focus for the soaring ambition and taste for adventure within her, and whenever she can slip away from her duties on her family’s prosperous Kentucky horse farm, she heads to the airfield.

Considering their shared passion, it’s no surprise that Ames begins to vie for Mittie’s time. But when handsome British aviator Bobby York offers her flying lessons, he is equally surprised-and beguiled-by Mittie’s grit and talent. Driven to succeed, Mittie will do whatever it takes to compete in the Women’s National Air Derby alongside Amelia Earhart. But when Calista “Peach” Gilson, a charming Southern belle, becomes her rival both professionally and in love, Mittie must learn how to navigate her heart’s romantic longings as well as the skies.

What do you do when you discover your real passion but not everyone is favorable to you pursuing it? Well if you are Mittie then you just plunge ahead despite all the obstacles that are placed in your way. It is 1927 and there are certain individuals that are taking to the skies. Mittie is one of them and she is trying so hard to be good at flying so that she can compete in the Women’s National Air Derby. And of course there is the romance. Not one but two men are trying to win her but one of them is a fraud. Which one? Ms. Stewart has done a wonderful job in her exploration of a woman’s role. Ms. Stewart is terrific in bringing us back to America as it was back then to show us how women were treated and how they wanted to be treated.  Mittie is such a great character and it is terrific the way she interacts with all the other characters that are in this book.  “A Flying Affair” is a delightful book that you will not want to end.
