The Secrets of Flight by Maggie Leffler

THE SECRETS OF FLIGHT is filled with writers, readers, secrets, life’s lessons, and​ laugh-out-loud situations.​

We meet 87-year-old Mrs. Browning also known as Miriam Lichtenstein who has a story that needs to be told and Elyse a 15-year old who helps record her story.

We learn about Mrs Browning’s past through flashbacks and the story she has Elyse typing for her.

The two main characters were lovable and two people who would be wonderful to know.  I am wondering if the characters were actual people in the author’s life.

I enjoyed flashing back to Mrs. Brownings’ life and seeing her excitement and experiences with flying as well as her personal life.  I learned about The Fly Girls who were famous during WWII.

The  friendship between Elyse and Mrs. Browning beautifully wove the story.

THE SECRETS OF FLIGHT is a well-researched, marvelous debut filled with vivid descriptions.

THE SECRETS OF FLIGHT took a few pages to get the gist of the story line, but it was funny, endearing, and a must read for historical fiction and women’s fiction fans.

I enjoyed THE SECRETS OF FLIGHT and was anxious to get back to the book and the characters. 

ENJOY when you read the book.  I did. 4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the author and publisher in return for an honest review.
