Heroine Interview from A Flight of Fancyby Laurie Alice Eakes:

Cassandra Bainbridge tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I am an aeronaut.

What do you do for fun?

I design balloons for flying, and I translate old poetry and books from their original languages into English.

What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Shopping. A little for necessities is fine, but—ugh, all that time wasted on fittings and selecting just the right hat.

What are you afraid of most in life?

Turning into my mother.

What do you want out of life?

I want to be significant as a scientist in my own right—and perhaps have a husband who accepts that about me and lets me pursue my goals.

What is the most important thing to you?

Flying in my balloons—or perhaps my fiancé, at least when he was my fiancé. 

Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

Ancient histories and the Bible—in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Sometimes I wish I were more like my sisters—happy to be a lady and doing all the expected things with mere hobbies rather than obsessions with things that aren’t really socially acceptable.

Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

I do not have a pet, and I rather like my sister’s cat, so perhaps I will get one.

If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I would go back to when I first met my fiancé and make many different choices, moral choices, to save us both a great deal of heartache.

  1. What a fascinating occupation, especially for a woman of the time.

    If I turn into my Mother, I would count it a blessing.
