    Beverly is a talented writer who makes you feel like you are having a conversation with a close friend. She takes you through her life including her hopes, dreams, aspirations, heartbreaks and triumphs in an engaging and personal style. Her story is insightful and endearing - and as other reviewers have noted, blush-worthy at times. As a guy, I find that Beverly has related eyebrow-raising descriptions of love, romance and sex from the female perspective. Probably more insight than I expected! Brings to mind the old "what do women want" and, well, some of the answers are right here. But I digress. In the earlier chapters, she describes teenage angst and the turmoil of finding one's way through boys and high school. As she begins her career as a flight attendant - stewardess, the title at the time - you sense her consummate professionalism and commitment to her craft, her airline, her associates and her passengers. Beverly dispels the tired, old "coffee, tea or me"... More > myth of these highly-trained crew members and reveals the challenges of caring for the traveling public day after day, flight after flight. Bev opens up about her personal struggles in her marriage and the toll that constant traveling takes on relationships. She describes her mistakes in judgement, and the consequences and attendant heartbreak with a very real mix of regret and denial. You shake your head at some of her behaviors and choices but your heart aches as she struggles with depression and loss. Your eyes may fill with tears at the poem a soldier wrote to a stewardess on his way to the battlefields of Vietnam. Mine did. And, as an international traveler myself, I laughed along with her at some of the antics of both crew and passengers. Oh, the things that happen on airplanes! Then you cheer as she finds new love, as she triumphs over naysayers and adversity, and as she grows into the Beverly we know today - confident, cheerful, and happy. In the best of literary traditions, she leaves us with a cliffhanger - I can't wait to read volume 2!< Less

    I've known Bev for some time, and found her book to be quite entertaining; to say the very least! I admire the Light-Years leap she made from a small town girl, to the Rush, Pressure, and Excitement of being a stewardess for a major airline, to be amazing! Bev's life was changed dramatically when she put on that uniform; and it kept on spinning with the exciting, talented, and important people she met along the way...and some of them were real Winners! If you like a "tell-all" book, Bev's book is a must read!!

    A fun read about a great girl who made her wish come true. Even as a guy I enjoyed many of the stories about growing up in West Virginia and Ohio. Elvis Presley and Wendell Ladner - WOW! My only regret is not hearing more about some of the characters and funny situationS Bev must have dealt with as a flight attendant. As an author, she has a fine sense of humor. Can't they make a movie or sitcom out of this?! AND, when is the sequel coming out? Roger Simonds

    This book is an excellent read. It is like going back in time and reliving your memories along with Bev's. Also it reminds me somewhat of the movie "Blast from the Past" except it is much better! I highly recommend this book to anyone...very nostalgic!
