  • Suspenseful Romance Will Grab You From Page One

    When I think about this novel, I think of it as a pile of legos. At first they are scattered on the floor. Then as you work through the book, one by one, each lego takes its place in a perfectly crated whole that leaves you feeling completely satisfied. Awarded four stars on Goodreads. Beatrice Williams again proves herself a master storyteller. She understands how to skillfully piece together bits and pieces of narrative, from different periods of time, so that the full story builds steadily and with increasing suspense. In this novel, the three main characters are: Janey Everett - a noted photojournalist working in the months following the end of World War II on a book about a 10-year-old aviation mystery. Sam Mallory - a highly skilled aviation instructor working in the early days of the industry, when figures like Charles Lindbergh were making daring trips that fired the imagination of the press and public. Irene Foster - a pioneering aviatrix cut from the same cloth as Amelia Earhart. In no way do I want to spoil your own enjoyment of the story, but I will add a bit about some of the drama that gets layered on.The Spanish Civil War makes an appearance, there are several plane crashes, assorted marriages and love affairs,, and a romance that is challenged by both people and circumstance. It’s a very fun read!

  • Great novel

    What a delightful book. Twists, turns, mysteries, and murder. Just fabulous. I've been interested in the 'beginning' of flight all my life. With this work by Beatriz Williams, I'm ready to read more about the women who were brave enough to head straight into a this bastion of young men fearlessly taking to the skies. Barnstormers, acrobatic fliers, call them what you will, their exploits began the legends of the flying aces. Then, a young woman reluctantly decides to join their ranks. Now we begin our story. Told through the eyes of a young Irene Lindquist, and an older Irene, with Janey Everett pushing the story throughout, we learn of a young woman, Irene, enamored with a young man, Sam Mallory. He's a flyer and teaches HER about flying. At some point, the student becomes the star and they go their separate ways. At the height of Irene's career, she vanishes. Now Janey has 'found' the lost flyer, Irene, on Kauai and wants to tell her story. Janey also has a connection with Irene's young man, Sam, and wants to find out more about him. She also wants to let Irene know about his fate. That's all I'll say about the storyline. I don't want to give any more away! This is my first Beatriz Williams book. I'm now a fan! Brilliant writing, and you can tell a lot of research was done about the time period and the beginning of flight.

    Thanks for your feedback!
