Crossing the Horizon
by Laurie Notaro
Praise For This Book:
"Notaro portrays this exciting sliver of time with historical accuracy, providing an authentic glimpse of the era (including photographs), and then adds a pump of adrenaline by including dialogue and drama of her own imagination, creating a captivating historical fiction. Be prepared to hold tight as you're boosted into the cockpit for a two-day flight across the horizon. The odds of making it are against you—but what a ride!" – Kirkus Reviews

“...Soaring into a page-turning, stomach-churning, hilarious, and heartbreaking adventure... Elsie, Mabel, and Ruth defied the odds stacked against them, and their indomitable spirits and vibrant, larger-than-life personalities provide much inspiration.” – Publishers Weekly

“Fascinating… Well-researched novelization.. A compelling story… Harrowing scenes from the cockpit are a reminder of the daring and skill these pilots had. Notaro’s narrative of the pleasures Elsie finds in the air soar with emotion.” – USA Today

"Best known for her offbeat essays on contemporary topics, Notaro breaks new literary ground and demonstrates an intuitive sense of narrative and indelible appreciation for history's ironies in this engrossing novel." – Booklist
