Circling the Sun - Paula McLain
An historical fiction book by Paula McLain (author of the Paris Wife). This powerful novel transports readers to the breathtaking world of "Out of Africa" 1920s Kenya revealing the extraordinary adventures of Beryl Markham, a woman before her time. Brought to Kenya from England by pioneering parents dreaming of a new life on an African farm, Beryl is raised unconventionally, developing fierce will and a love of all things wild. But after everything she knows and rusts dissolves, headstrong young Beryl is flung into a string of disastrous relationships and becomes caught up in a passionate love triangle with the irresistible safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton and the writer Baroness Karen Blixen. Brave and audacious and contradictory, Beryl will risk everything to have Denys's love, but it's ultimately her own heart she must conquer to embrace her true calling and her destiny: to fly.
