Synopsis: An unprecedented, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the airline world, Flying: A Novel traces the lives of two young women as they "fly the line" for Pan Am in the 1970s, where they learn that living-like flying-takes more courage than they ever imagined. Spanning locations around the globe, Flying takes the reader along for the ride, from decadent crew parties in Africa to intrigue at misty pagodas in Burma, a searing romance at an archaeological dig in Tahiti, and the heart-rending fall of Saigon. This is a story about the unsung heroes and the heartbreaks of the airline industry in its final glamour days, as well as addiction to living life on the razor's edge. It is also about the nature of family, heroism and love, and what it really means to be a citizen of the world. But ultimately, it celebrates that exciting, terrifying moment when an airplane hits rotation speed and lifts off the runway. It's called flying, and it will never be this way again.

About the Author: Paula Helfrich lives in Hawaii, U.S.A. and Yangon, Myanmar, where she teaches English to monks and children. She worked for Pan American World Airways for twenty years and flew the line in six locations. Rebecca Sprecher lives in Beaufort, S.C. and flew for Pan Am for six years out of New York and Honolulu. Both are still inveterate travelers and adventurers.
