Young Reader Reaction: Review pending.

Adult Reader Reaction: Amelia Earhart is a household name, but Beryl Markham's should be as well. The author creates a suspenseful, poignant, and at times humorous biography of this unique woman. The title doesn't do the book justice or give you much insight into how incredible Beryl's story is. [Frankly, I'm still not sure how it fits.]

Pros: Readers of all ages will be spellbound by this fascinating historical novel. Beryl Markham was a woman ahead of her time, but also true to herself.
