Summary
"Petite, glamorous and charming, Jessie "Chubbie" Miller was a remarkable woman: flyer, thrill-seeker, heartbreaker. No adventure was too wild for her, no danger too extreme. And all over the world men adored her. When young Jessie left Australia and her newspaperman husband in 1927, little did she know that she'd become the first woman to complete an England to Australia flight (with a black silk gown thrown into her tiny flight bag, just in case), or fly in the first women's air race--with Amelia Earhart--or that she would disappear over the Bermuda Triangle feared lost forever. Nor could she have predicted that five years later she'd find herself in Miami at the center of one of the most notorious and controversial murder trials in US history. And her adventures all began with something as ridiculously mundane as a pat of butter. The Fabulous Flying Mrs. Miller is a spellbinding story of an extraordinary woman--an international celebrity during the golden age of aviation--and her passionate and spirited life."--Back cover
