Natasha J. Rosewood takes readers on a wild journey through the skies and into the heart of the 1970s airline industry in her captivating memoir, "In Flight of Your Life, Confessions of a 1970s Air Hostess."

Beyond the cabin, Rosewood's personal life proves to be just as turbulent as her professional one. Friends' constant emergencies and her own romantic escapades threaten to derail her at every turn. Yet, amidst the chaos, Rosewood's unwavering spirit and infectious humor shine through. She skillfully navigates the unpredictable rollercoaster of emotions, making us laugh, gasp, and cheer her on as she triumphs over adversity.
