    So I had to add another book to my dnf tag What gives?To be honest I just couldn't click with the writing It was getting to distracting to read the book and I decided to set it aside for now That being said I don't think this will be the case for everyone The premise of the book is great and it just depends on how picky people are about the level of writing in the book

    Fans of historical fiction might like this one but I found the writing style hard to get into The book is very dialogue driven and the characters have an old fashioned way of speaking that I felt was a little choppy But the premise of the book is interesting it's about an airline stewardess in the 1960s A big plus is that the women's movement is included as part of the historical context Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystiue is uoted and there are scenes that describe how Katherine receives unwanted advances while working Katherine is a proponent for women's rights along with her fellow stewardesses Native American spirituality and mistreatment are important themes in this book as wellA sincere thanks to BookSparks for providing an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Social shelfawareness on Instagram

    Skyueenby Judy KundertMost men lead lives of uiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them Katherine Roebling the main character of this story uotes Thoreau here I feel this uote encompasses the whole of Katherine's existence She struggles as a woman in 1967 Chicago as a stewardess who longs to educate people about her Chippewa heritage She is trying to find her own way independently and as a woman it can be difficult Ms Kundert touches on the many prejudices held against women during this time period and the bias prevalent in business and everyday life of a woman Katherine's goal is to succeed on her own and not to depend on a man to achieve her success However she meets Neal and tries to fight her feelings for him There are supernatural spiritual elements intertwined in this story because Katherine has Native American blood running through her as well This adds a touch of fantasy to the mostly romantic girl trying to find herself story I'm not sure if it helped the story because I found it a little off balance as I read It didn't seem to fit when she fell into her trances and received feathers that floated into her lap Neal and Katherine had a lot of chemistry When the story alluded to their flourishing relationship I enjoyed it But most of the story didn't uite fit together It felt like it was told in pieces and I couldn't connect it all including the characters that appeared and then disappeared like Danny O'Brien Due to the bits and pieces being held together by Katherine I could not connect with anyone in this story There were no special moments that stood out and the story just fell flat I'd have to give it a 3 on a scale of 1 to 5 due to the disconnectedness of it

    I received an advance readers copy of Sky ueen from BookSparks but all opinions are my ownSky ueen by Judy Kundert was an enjoyable read about a life that pulls our leading lady in two directions One that has her feet firmly on the ground and helps her explore her roots and the other that has her sky high living the life others can only dream of I’m always a big fan of historical fiction and the author touches on themes of sexual harassment in the workplace women’s rights and other topical issues of the times then and now really There is a lot of dialogue in the book which I found broke my reading flow at times because it didn’t feel particularly natural For the most part I enjoyed the story though

    This is a great story of someone who's life is in transition we've all been there where you are getting by in your current lifework but wondering if there's out there for you The protagonist Katherine Roebling reckons with her current life as a glamorous stewardess in the 1960s with her calling to shape the world for her tribal community It's a beautiful tale exploring these themes and I fell in love Katherine’s spunk and the way the book explored workplace harassment My one ualm with the book is the Native American character's portrayal by a non NA author Otherwise great coming into your own read Perfect vibes for a vacation or trip⠀

    The premise of this book was interesting but the characters made no sense The dialogue was glaringly contradicting and strange at times I gave it 60 pages to get better but unfortunately it just didn’t DNF this one

  7. Rebecca Ververs says:

    This is a neat clean romance set in 1967 Chicago Its an introductory book that is set to have several follow on books with the same strong female lead character The author granted me a brief interview which can be found on the Pines and Plains libraries you tube channel

    I really enjoyed the story behind this book but had a difficult time getting through it I felt like I couldn't connect that much with Katherine because I never knew what she was actually thinking I couldn't tell what guys she liked or what she actually wanted to happen Scenes changed a lot without notice and I had a hard time following what happened Regardless of these issues again I loved the story and what this book was trying to say
