After her mother’s death, Dottie Lester moves to her parent’s hometown of Saplingville, Georgia with her alcoholic father.

When Dottie meets a handsome pilot and falls in love, her goal changes, but it is still no match for his desire to leave their small town behind and fly for a commercial airline.

My Review:

Get swept up in this emotional historical romance by Jane Lewis. This book has been sitting on my e-reader for quite some time. I’ve been waiting for the right moment, and I read it over the weekend. Love at Five Thousand Feet is set during a time where life moved at a slower pace. I love everything about this book from the setting to the characters to the family drama to the romance. Love at Five Thousand Feet is one of those books you won’t be able to put down.

Let’s start with the characters. After all, this is a character-driven plot. I connected with Dottie right away. She’s in a bind after the death of her mother. She must get her father settled before she can leave. Her fortitude and strength are admirable. Victor, also, is taking care of family. Both have family obligations preventing them from pursuing their dreams. It also connects them and naturally they fall in love. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of conflict to overcome.

The descriptive narration is first-class and immersive. It’s historically accurate and well described. The narration and setting almost become another character. Every scene is described so as to plunge the reader into the story.

Love at Five Thousand Feet is a historical romance I enjoyed reading. If you’re like me and love heartfelt, realistic romance set in a bygone era, you’ll want to read Love at Five Thousand Feet.

My Rating: 5 stars
