Promise the Night

This fascinating story will capture any young listener with a thirst for adventure. Like MacColl's Prisoners in the Palace, Promise the Night propels the listener into an evocative story with an unforgettable protagonist, while bringing the setting and time period to life. Immediately compelling and action-packed, this work of historical fiction explores the life of Beryl Markham, the fist person to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west from England to North America. From raising horses and hunting during her childhood in Africa to learning to fly as a young woman, Beryl's inspiring life and adventures will keep listeners voraciously turning the pages.
