really liked it

I enjoyed this book. It is set in the 1930's, blending historical fact and fiction. Former wartime ace James Harrington, and plucky, beautiful red headed Aussie, Sarah Carson, make an unusual team, but together they plan to fly from London to Australia. James wants to fly solo, but Sarah wants to go too. So he teaches her to fly, and they leave on the adventure of a lifetime! They are beset by problems, not least being his parents and wife, and seem to be plagued by unfortunate events every step of the way.
Sarah's boyfriend, Daniel Anderson, also an Aussie, is a Fleet Street aviation correspondent, and has many misgivings, but is reporting on their trip. Sarah is 'Glory Girl', the first ever female to fly such a distance....
This historical adventure-romance is an unforgettable story about the risks they take and the sacrifices they make for their chance of glory.
