    Circling the Sun

    The name Beryl Markham was vaguely familiar when I started reading this book. It was captivating from the beginning, a snapshot of her adult life, then went back her earliest memories. The straightforward writing had me living in Kenya everytime I picked up the book. Ms McLain crafted the story at a comfortable pace. I stayed enthralled each page.

    My Mom, Susan, a formidable and inspiring woman herself, recommended this book to me, so I had high hopes from the beginning. I can honestly say that this book exceeded my expectations on every level! This is a must read!!!! Beryl Markham's story is inspiring, shocking, honest and brave. She was a woman both ahead of and a product of her time and place who lived fiercely and honestly, making no apologies. While life taught her to guard her heart, her loyalty and steadfastness to those truly close to this remarkable woman and her commitment to herself has much to offer as food for thought. This novel will make you think about how your life has shaped you, those around you, and how you in turn want to shape your life. In short, it is just a bloody good book!
