Considering their shared passion, it's no surprise that Ames begins to vie for Mittie's time.

- Turf and Air by Maureen on 6/3/2015
Mittie Humphreys is a girl with a lot of spunk, but she also has a lot of compassion for her fellow man and animals, especially horses. She also has a passion of flying, with Lucky Lindy, Charles Lindbergh, having flown his Sprit of St. Louis across the Atlantic, she is longing for the skies.
Mittie lives with her family on a Kentucky horse farm, and has a passion for showing horses, but her love of flying is pulling her. We have two main male characters here, and without realizing it, both are vying for Mittie’s heart.
The author has provided a lot of information at the end of the book, and characters although fictional are based on real people and real happenings. We face a lot of obstacles to woman flying, not surprising with the feelings at that period of time, we also meet head on some of the problems facing Mittie and females like her.
There is a bit of romance here, and as we read we wonder which of these young men will win her hand, and which one is the honest one. Who is sabotaging her horses and her planes? The answers really surprised me, and some of my questions were left up for me to solve.
What a great read, keep me up late turning the pages, and really enjoying a story that could have really happened, just the way the author wrote.
I received this book through the Publisher Hachette and their Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
