Title:  Love at Five Thousand Feet


Author:   Jane Lewis


Genre:    Historical Romance


Book Blurb:  


After her mother’s death, Dottie Lester moves to her parent’s hometown of Saplingville, Georgia with her alcoholic father. She wants to escape and go to live with her aunt in Macon, but first, she must get her father settled in his new job. 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.


Victor Douglas, United States Army Air Corps pilot, returns to Saplingville to help his ailing father. He has been flying his own JN-4 Jenny bi-plane for years. That and his army experience qualify him to apply for a job as a commercial airline pilot and win a coveted job offer, but how can he leave his father now, or a budding romance with the pretty new girl in town?

sides of the seat as fear clutched her heart. She closed

her eyes and prayed. The bi-plane hit the pasture with a

bounce before coming to a stop close to the shed.


Victor turned off the engine. He stepped out,

climbed on the plane beside the seat and reached for

Dottie’s hand to help her out.


He jumped off the wing, grabbed her around the

waist, and set her in front of him. Without saying a

word, he took her face in his hands. He bent to kiss her.

Her legs were weak from flying. She hadn’t gotten used

to being on land. When he kissed her, it was as if she

were in a whirlpool, the earth spinning around her.


She swayed, Victor steadied her. “Well, how do

you like it?”


She tightened her hold on his arm as the earth

turned beneath her. “What, the flying?”


He pulled the aviator cap off her head. “Yes, the

relaxed and enjoyed the ride.”
