Friday Fiction: High Flying Romance!

Maiden Flight
Betty Beaty
1963 (original publication 1956)

It is been a while since we have had a Friday Fiction selection, but today is your lucky day with a romance special featuring an airline stewardess. Like most romance fiction of this period, we have a meet not-so-cute of poor, shy stewardess newbie Pamela and irritating and sexist instructor Roger. Roger evidently has a problem with women on airplanes. Of course, he offers nothing but “helpful” criticism, with a side of condescension. You know, because it’s for her own good. By the last page, Pamela is an “adult” and understands Roger and his motives for being a jerk. Naturally, he proposes marriage and all is right with the world.

I feel like this should have a warning label that your feminist sensibilities might explode.
