I really enjoyed this fictional version of the life of New Zealander Jean Batten who was a pioneering aviatorI think the book was originally published in 2013 but through Netgalley and Aardvark Bureau I was given the chance to read a forthcoming UK edition in exchange for an honest reviewThere are many detailed reviews which chart the details about the novel so I will not try to repeat what has been written beforeThe author Fiona Kidman has created a beautifully written story which captures the life of Jean Batten and her family and associatesI found myself drawn into the real history behind the book and it seems that is very well researched The bibliography at the end along with the Internet has meant that I have been drawn into this fascinating era of the pioneers of early aviationThere were stages when I felt sorrow and respect for the central character However there were also parts of the story when I disliked the person It is for this reason that I think that it is a well written narrativeI will remember this book for the insight it offers into the social and gender issues which prevailed during this era in history I particularly liked the way the story explored the effects of the depression on those living in New ZealandI will certainly look out for other works by this author
