“Time won’t do a thing. You should have a proper wife, one who wants to care for you and have a dozen children and all of it. That’s not me. “
He turned with the drink is his hand, and I could see the hard edge inside him, its silhouette as clear and sharp as if he were his own faraway mountain. I had caught him off guard.
“You don’t love me, then.” He said it coldly and cleanly.
“We don’t really even know each other. Do we?”
Paula McLain the New York Times Bestselling Author of “The Paris Wife”… Captives Us…One More Time…With her new book…”Circling The Sun.”
Circling The Sun is a historical fiction that transports us to Africa in the early 1900’s “Before Kenya was Kenya, when it was millions of years old and yet still somehow new.”
Here in Africa we have traveled several decades as the companion of Beryl Markham the main character… as she tells us the story of her life.
Circling in the Sun once again puts the sunlight on real life British born Kenyan Author, Aviator, Race Horse Trainer, and Adventurer Beryl Markham who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west, and was also the first licensed female racehorse trainer at the age of 18.
Beryl Markham was no doubt a complicated woman…that lived a very complicated life.
The author Paul McLain did a remarkable job bringing the spirit of Beryl Markham to life in the pages of this book… each page but more intriguing than the page before it.
And just like the Sun…A star that centers the solar system… And the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Beryl in many ways metaphorically circled the solar system throughout the various stages of her life and discovered that with every failure, disappointment, and heartache that she was the sun, and the light that she was circling from the sun, was her own.
This is definitely a must read, must have book, and I highly recommend that you curl up with this book and let the author transcend your senses to Africa.
