Celebrate the miracle of flight with a lesser known aviatrix of the early 20th century. Beryl Markham was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west. Promise the Night not only gives the reader a glimpse at this historic event, it also follows Beryl’s early adventures as a young girl in British East Africa. It’s a unique view of an often forgotten pilot.
