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.
What an adventure you go on with Della in this book. If you are a lover of historical fiction this book is right up your alley. This book is set in more of the recent past which makes how far we have become from then until now so incredible it blows your mind completly
All Characters I connected to in some way but I did love being taken on this escapade along with Della.
This book is so well researched and I found the part at the end which Rebecca explains how she researched the book so fascinating. One day I would love to visit the Shuttleworth Collection. I also loved the fact the novel also features several real like female pilots. What amazing women!
This is my second Mascull novel I will certainly be looking out for more
4 out of 5 stars
