Mary Carwile

Author Mary Catherine Carwile weaves a story that pulls you in and makes you feel as though you’re sitting face to face, sipping tea, visiting with an old friend.

-Heartstrings at 35,000 Feet

"When you come to the edge of all you've known and are about to step into darkness, one of two things will happen. Either there will be something solid for you to stand on or you will be taught to fly." Author Mary Carwile had heard that somewhere a long time ago, but it didn't have much meaning to her at the time. It was only when several of life's unpredictable surprises pushed her into making a leap of faith. Being divorced and surviving breast cancer made her look at life a little differently. Terrified about her future, she accepted an offer from a friend to apply to become a flight attendant. After being told she'd made the cut, she found herself asking, "What have I done?" She had her wings. Now it was time to fly.

In the course of learning her new profession, a pattern began to emerge. Passengers--- strangers--- began to open up to Mary. They felt comfortable sharing their stories. What started as a story retold at a dinner party has become a book filled with heartwarming and sometimes tearful stories.
