The Wild Air

The Wild Air

In Edwardian England, aeroplanes are a new, magical invention, while female pilots are rare indeed.

When shy Della Dobbs meets her mother’s aunt, her life changes forever. Great Auntie Betty has come home from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, across whose windswept dunes the Wright Brothers tested their historic flying machines. Della develops a burning ambition to fly and Betty is determined to help her.

But the Great War is coming and it threatens to destroy everything – and everyone – Della loves.

Uplifting and page-turning, THE WILD AIR is a story about love, loss and following your dreams against all odds.

Reviews

I loved this book, riveting and compelling, original and wonderfully written
Rowan Coleman
The writing flies off the page and into the heart.
Louise Walters, author of Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase
Just loved it! What a wonderful and inspiring story.
Jill Mansell
Della Dobbs is a wonderfully feisty and ambitious heroine and I cheered her all the way. Although the novel is packed with adventure and peril, at its heart there is a quiet tenderness which I found very poignant.
Juliet West, author of Before The Fall
What a stunning book . . . beautifully written, impeccably researched, and utterly addictive.
Louise Beech, author of How to Be Brave
Captivating . . . With a plot rich in description, written in a straightforward style that reflects the no-nonsense attitude of its heroine, this is an inspiring read.
