    Must Read for 2016!!

    When I found out that K.M. Weiland, one of my favorite writers, was working on a book that featured airplanes, I was so excited. I knew she could tell a tale that would bring the excitement of the barnstormer world to reality, and with her own brand of exciting twists. As a bit of an aeronautics enthusiast, I was pleasantly delighted at what she came up with. The subtle dieselpunk world Ms. Weiland created featuring "Hitch" and Jael as her main characters is breathtakingly realistic, and the interplay between Hitch and Jael--when he's an "groundsman" and she's from a secret dirigible in the sky--is at times hilarious, other times confounding, but always touching and believable. And the airplanes! <grin> Every time Hitch, Jael, or Walter (the mute little boy in the story) hopped in the seat of Hitch's Jenny, I felt like I was sitting there in the cockpit with them. I could picture the rudimentary gauges, the stick between my knees, hair blowing in the wind, the thrill of takeoff. And when Jael gets out on the wings to do her wingwalking stunt, I felt just as uptight about it as Hitch did, holding my breath until she was safely back in the front seat. All of this is lovingly set in western Nebraska around 1920. Having traveled to the region, I could easily picture some of the vistas where the scenes took place, but I could tell the author was as intimately familiar with the setting as her main character, Hitch. Well worth the read, and well worth reading again.
