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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Just loved it! What a wonderful and inspiring story. * Jill Mansell *
What a stunning book . . . beautifully written, impeccably researched, and utterly addictive. * Louise Beech, author of How to Be Brave *
Della Dobbs is a wonderfully feisty and ambitious heroine and I cheered her all the way. Although the novel is packed with adventure and peril, at its heart there is a quiet tenderness which I found very poignant. * Juliet West, author of Before The Fall *
The writing flies off the page and into the heart. * Louise Walters, author of Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase *
I loved this book, riveting and compelling, original and wonderfully written * Rowan Coleman *
Captivating . . . With a plot rich in description, written in a straightforward style that reflects the no-nonsense attitude of its heroine, this is an inspiring read. * The Lady on SONG OF THE SEA MAID *

“Girls' own adventure!”

We need more adventure books these days. Especially us women. I don't mean thrillers involving dark secrets and titles with 'girl' in them, I don't mean crime books, or secret missions and... More
