Promise the Night


This fascinating story will capture any young reader with a thirst for adventure. Like MacColl's Prisoners in the Palace, Beryl Above Africa propels the reader into an evocative story with an unforgettable protagonist, while bringing the setting and time period to life. Immediately compelling and action-packed, this work of historical fiction explores the life of Beryl Markham, the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west. From raising horses and hunting during her childhood in Africa to learning to fly as a young woman, Beryl's inspiring life and adventures will keep readers voraciously turning the pages.
