Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick:

Velva Jean Learns to Fly by Jenniver Niven

Due out: August 30, 2011

Synopsis taken from

After Pearl Harbor, Velva Jean signs up for service and gets her wings, risking her life --- and her heart.
Velva Jean Hart, the fiercely independent heroine of Jennifer Niven's spectacular debut novel, VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO DRIVE, returns in a captivating adventure that literally sends her soaring.
Bristling at the limitations faced by a woman in rural Appalachia and fuelled by the memory of her late Mama telling her to "live out there," Velva Jean hits the road to pursue her dream of singing at the Grand Ole Opry. But after a string of auditions, she begins to lose hope- until her brother pays her a surprise visit and treats Velva Jean to a flying lesson that ignites a brand-new dream: to become a female pilot.
Funny, poignant, and utterly unforgettable, VELVA JEANS LEARNS TO FLY will have fans cheering all over again.

I thought the title of this one looked familiar and then realized that Velva Jean is back. YAY! I can't wait.

I think I just saw this one as a Net Galley offering. Sounds fun.
