Beryl Markham made aviation history in 1936, the first to fly a solo, nonstop flight across the Atlantic. This revealing novel chronicles her life leading up to that momentous journey. Raised on a horse ranch by her father in Kenya, young Beryl prefers ranch work to school, is best friends with a local Kipsigis boy, narrowly survives a lion mauling, and is the first woman to earn a racehorse-trainer's license. Soon after, she becomes enmeshed in a love triangle with Out of Africa writer Karen Blixen and hunter Denys Finch Hatton. Circling the Sun weaves an absorbing tale of a remarkable woman defying expectations at every turn. (KG)
