The best Book Velva Jean Learns to Fly Every bit as fabulous as Velva Jean Learns to Drive - And then some!"You've got to make your own way in this world and follow your own heart.

And don't you let anyone stop you."From the Appalachain mountains, to the music halls of Nashville, to the arid plains of Texas, to the humid coast of North Carolina - Velva Jean Learns to Fly. Literally and figuratively. I thought at length, "how can I expound upon this fabulous book - second in series of the Velva Jean adventures set in the era of WWII - without giving away key plot elements from the first book?" The answer, I can't, really. But I can expound on the overall theme of 'following ones dreams.' Dreams often require a good bit of hard work and healthy doses of luck or divine intervention before coming to fruition. And when external circumstances rise up, and/or maturity redefines us, sometimes we have to re-imagine our dreams, re-shape them to accommodate a new set of parameters and/or a grander picture.Additionally, how better to praise a great southern adventure, coming-of-age saga, Appalachian culture-rich book, than let it speak for itself:"If there was one thing I hated in this world, it was folks who told you that you couldn't do something. That was worse than being told you shouldn't do it. I knew they meant well, but a person had to believe in herself even when on one else did.""Mama used to say being scared or sad or mad gave you things to write about that weren't just blue skies and spring flowers and ice cream.""I thought what a lucky girl I was to have so many people I loved in this world, even if they were, most of them, far away, and even if some of them were as far away as heaven." "When it got down to it, words were just about my favorite thing and you didn't have much if you didn't have words. I thought that maybe they were the most powerful thing on earth. Sometimes they could lift you up like you'd just been saved, and sometimes they cut through you till you couldn't breathe. I loved the feeling when you found just the right one after you'd been looking for it for a while. I hated the feeling when you couldn't catch them like you wanted to or when someone used them against you."Five Top-Pick Stars of southern and historical fiction awesomeness!!
