Today's Featured Book and Contest: VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO FLY by Jennifer Niven

After Pearl Harbor, Velva Jean signs up for service and gets her wings, risking her life --- and her heart.

Velva Jean Hart, the fiercely independent heroine of Jennifer Niven's spectacular debut novel, VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO DRIVE, returns in a captivating adventure that literally sends her soaring.

Bristling at the limitations faced by a woman in rural Appalachia and fuelled by the memory of her late Mama telling her to "live out there," Velva Jean hits the road to pursue her dream of singing at the Grand Ole Opry. But after a string of auditions, she begins to lose hope --- until her brother pays her a surprise visit and treats Velva Jean to a flying lesson that ignites a brand-new dream: to become a female pilot.

Funny, poignant and utterly unforgettable, VELVA JEANS LEARNS TO FLY will have fans cheering all over again.

VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO FLY is in stores now.
