Circling the Sun
Reviewed by- Linda (2017/03/13, 07:46 AM)
I was pulled into this heartfelt story right from the start. Africa is huge, Iíve read many books set in this country, yet I feel there is always something to learn with each new book. Young Beryl was a delight to read about. Growing up on her fatherís farm in Kenya, she was as wild and free as we all envision Africa to be. Her mother abandoned her at age four, her father left her when she was a teenager, yet these events did not dampen her spirit or hinder her development into a strong independent woman, but most likely shaped her into a woman not afraid to take chances, one who eventually makes a record breaking Atlantic flight in the mid 1930s , flying solo. I found reading about this adventurous and self-sufficient woman inspiring. Recommend. Excellent book club choice.Back.
