A 2020 Kansas Notable Book

When World War II makes her way to southwest Kansas, Edna Bell-Pearson's life is forever changed. After meeting the man who is to become her husband-a pilot stationed in her hometown of Liberal-Edna moves to the opposite corner of the state. She is instrumental in starting what will become the Marysville Municipal Airport. Edna's story, taking place over the course of five short years, tells of Ungerer Flying Service, a family-built and operated business. As the business is born, Edna learns to appreciate the importance of the little things-hunting and fishing trips, a good housekeeper, and crisp, autumnal days without wind.
