Inhaltsangabe: From the bestselling and award-winning author of Whistling Past the Graveyard comes an adventure tale about two daredevils and a farm boy who embark on the journey of a lifetime across America s heartland in the Roaring Twenties.
Set in the rapidly changing world of 1920s America, this is a story of three people from very different backgrounds: Henry Schuler Jefferson, son of German immigrants from Midwestern farm country; Cora Rose Haviland, a young woman of privilege whose family has lost their fortune; and Charles Gil Gilchrist, an emotionally damaged WWI veteran pilot. Set adrift by life-altering circumstances, they find themselves bound together by need and torn apart by blind obsessions and conflicting goals. Each one holds a secret that, if exposed, would destroy their friendship. But their journey of adventure and self-discovery has a price and one of them won t be able to survive it.
As they crisscross the heartland, exploring the rapidly expanding role of aviation from barnstorming to bootlegging, from a flying circus to the dangerous sport of air racing, the three companions form a makeshift family. It s a one-of-a-kind family, with members as adventurous as they are vulnerable, and as fascinating as they are flawed. But whatever adventure worldly or private they find themselves on, they re guaranteed to be a family you won t forget."

Rezension: Praise for THE FLYING CIRCUS
"An exhilarating, memorable flight into the world of barnstorming in the 1920's, with all the twists and turns of an aerial acrobat. Compelling characters and a fascinating setting make this journey a sheer joyride. Satisfying and delightful!"--Lynn Cullen, author of MRS. POE

"Exciting adventures abound when three unlikely misfits take to the skies. Friendships are challenged, lives are risked, and dark secrets threaten to tear the trio apart as they barnstorm across America's heartland. A spirited, big-hearted tale."--Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of LOOKING FOR ME

"Deeply moving. A richly drawn story of love, loss, and redemption with characters as finely tuned as the planes they fly."--Wendy Wax, USA Today bestselling author of A WEEK AT THE LAKE

Praise for WHISTLING PAST THE GRAVEYARD
"A coming-of-age story as well as a luminous portrait of courage and the bonds of friendship. . . Susan Crandall tells young Starla's story with pitch-perfect tone, evoking 1963 Mississippi and its struggles with a deft hand. I laughed and cried at Starla's keen observances of life and family and the sometimes blurred edges of justice. Like Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Kathryn Stockett's" The Help," "Whistling Past the Graveyard" is destined to become a classic."--New York Times bestselling author Karen White

"A delightfully complex story about defying the odds to find the gifts we have tucked inside us."--Shelf Awareness

"It's not easy to keep such a young narrator convincing for more than 300 pages... Readers will take to Starla and be caught up in her story."--Mary Ellen Quinn "Booklist "

"Susan Crandall's "The Flying Circus" is a fascinating story of love and loss set against the colorful background of barnstorming 1920s America. Every detail sings, and every character will touch your heart in this rip-roaring tale of three daredevils on the run, each with something to hide, drawn together by a desire to conquer the skies as well as their own demons. Romance, suspense, aerial thrills and spills--what more is there to ask for?"--Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of THE AVIATOR S WIFE"

""The Flying Circus" is Susan Crandall at her best--a colorful, rich and historical tale of the early years of flight. Heroes and villains and an achingly sweet romance will pull at the reader's heart long after the last page is turned. I loved this book!"--New York Times bestselling author Karen White
