Circling the Sun 
by Paula McLain

The story of Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denis Finch-Hatton and Karen Blixen, who as Isak Dinesen wrote the classic memoir Out of Africa. Raised in Kenya, Beryl’s unconventional upbringing transforms her into a bold young woman with a fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of nature’s delicate balance. She forges her own path as a horse trainer and eventually as an aviator. Set against the majestic landscape of early-twentieth-century Africa, the book reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time, the exhilaration of freedom and its cost, and the tenacity of the human spirit.
