I was really glad to see that the author of Velva Jean Learns to Drive had written a sequel. The first book is the story of her growing up in the mountains of North Carolina. All she wanted to do was to become a singer and sing at the Grand Ol Opry in Nashville.The sequel continues with her driving to Nashville and learning that it’s not that easy to get a recording contract. Unfortunately World War II starts and she and her brother decide to take flying lessons. Velva Jean joins an all women pilot training program called the WASPS. Flying planes gets into her blood but she never stops singing and writing songs. Despite sexual harassment and sabotage she and her fellow pilots are determined to succeed. I really enjoyed this book and hope there is another.
