This is a family-friendly novel from Unlimited Publishing LLC, rich in historical detail and engaging characters, like books by James Michener. Unable to compete in sports, tone deaf, and behind in school as a child, shy Joe Oberlin's social awkwardness also stems from burn scars. As the Depression deepens, he learns he has a gift for unconventional farming and a family that believes in him. Then he learns to fly. A World War II fighter pilot, he sticks to his old-fashioned country values, which clash with those of an urban superior who persecutes him. Supported by his flamboyant friend Crole, in the skies he faces fear and death; on the ground he meets a brilliant British woman to whom his "unconventional conventionality" matters.
