Carmen, Kate and Rachel stood side by side at the top of Mount Fuji and looked down at what they had just achieved.

‘Let’s make 2020 our year of adventures,’ hailed Kate.

If only these three flying friends could have known what 2020 had in store for them when they walked in, owning it, proclaiming it to be theirs.

When a global pandemic puts the aviation industry into a nosedive the three are faced with adventures far removed from the ones they had expected, and have to learn to navigate their own new routes.

Will Kate divert from her default positive personality? Will Rachel cope alone when her pilot husband must find work abroad for months on end?

Will Carmen be able to let go of her past in order to realise who else she might become? Or will the past keep holding her back?

Who am I if I’m not Carmen Baker, Cabin Crew? Who can I be?

2020 - the year that flight attendants across the world learned to walk

I am hugely indecisive and loved both of the cover concepts that were presented to me! I decided therefore to make this cover a limited edition of just 150, and signed copies are available now exclusively at a website set up to showcase the many businesses set up by the talented crew community. Alternatively regular, unsigned copies can be purchased through Amazon.
