Promise the Night by Michaela MacColl

Immediately compelling and action-packed, this carefully researched work of historical fiction introduces young readers to the childhood of the famous yet elusive Beryl Markham, the first person to fly solo from England to North America. As in her debut novel, Prisoners in the Palace, MacColl propels readers into a multilayered story with an unforgettable heroine and evocative language that brings the backdrop of colonial British East Africa to life. A fascinating read for anyone with a thirst for adventure.

Unlike one of the other reviewer states, Steelergirl83 did not give away the plot of this story! I found her review to be the right way to review the book. People are just too critical and hard to please. Here's a book for all the tweens and anyone else that has an interest in a young girl who stays true to herself and follows her dreams. You can't please everyone, all the time. Thank you B&N for bringing us ALL a diverse selection of titles to chose from...because it takes all kinds to make up this world. P.S. I do wish you could keep the perverts out.

I love historical fictions. Even though this was written for teens I really enjoyed the book. I can see for a teen going back and forth from youth and adult would be confusing. I thought she captured life in Africa well and it a story that is not known well to most of us because we always think about Amiela Eirheart. I would recommend this book to anyone that has not read a historical fiction,it is a great way to start.

Tho I have not yet read this book I want to thank those who give the longer reviews. In reading them I am able to get a better sense of the story. They do not reveal major plot points or spoilers, they just give an honest review and a real feel for the books. Many have helped me not waste my money on books that would have offended me. This book sounds really good and as a true lover of historical fiction I am purchasing it and planning to read it soon. Thank you who take the time to give good reviews, not just repeating the summary.

Well, thanks to the two plot spoiling posters below, now i wont need to buy this book. They told everything that happens. You know, we dont care that you got it free for your "honest" review. Just state if you liked it or not, stop giving a book report, a dissertation, a summary....let us read it for ourselves. We dont get complimentary copies for your "honest rave review" like you do. We pay, and therefore do not like wasting money on books that you rude ppl tell the entire storyline.

Poo Annonymous on Nov. 17 (Nope. No way in the world) Mommy will not be around forever. Don't you think you should start thinking for yourself? Don't get me wrong, you should always follow your parents advice on things that involve growing up and going out with friends, and what is right or wrong, but learn to think for yourself. You will not always like the same things, so start growing up!
