About the Book
Isabella Grayson, the eldest daughter of a wealthy, English newspaper magnate, longs to become a journalist, but her parents don’t approve. They want her to marry well and help them gain a higher standing in society. After she writes an anonymous letter to the editor that impresses her father, her parents reluctantly agree she can write a series of articles about aviation and the race to fly across the English Channel, but only if she promises to accept a marriage proposal within the year.
When James Grant, an aspiring aviator, crashes his flying machine at the Grayson’s new estate, Bella is intrigued. James is determined to be the first to fly across the Channel and win the prize Mr. Grayson’s newspaper is offering. He hopes it will help him secure a government contract to build airplanes and redeem a terrible family secret. James wants to win Bella’s heart, but his background and lack of social standing make it unlikely her parents would approve. If he fails to achieve his dream, how will he win the love and respect he is seeking? Will Bella’s faith and support help him find the strength and courage he needs when unexpected events turn their world upside down?
In My Opinion
In her latest Edwardian adventure, Carrie Turansky takes readers to the skies.
During the changing exciting times of the early 1900’s aviation is gaining slow ground. When one newspaper owner offers a reward to the first man to fly across the English Channel, the race is on.
Isabell Grayson dreams of reporting the news as a journalist, but her parents—especially her mother—has other plans for her. In an attempt to get what her heart desires, she enters into an arrangement with her parents. One she may come to regret but for now, she’s happy to writer her articles.
Friendship, adventure, and a touch of mystery keep the story flowing. Disappointments, secrets, and misunderstandings threaten to tear the fabric of the friendship Isabella and the handsome aviator James Drake have formed.
Will they each realize their own dreams only to sacrifice the one that is growing between them?
