AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'London, 1927. The jazz age. Aviators seek to conquer new frontiers in the sky.

'Former wartime ace James Harrington has his sights set on being the first person to fly from Britain to Australia in a light aircraft. With so much desert and ocean to cross, he's been told it can't be done.

Feisty Australian Sarah Carson can help make his dream a reality, but only on the condition that he takes her with him. So begins the flying adventure of a lifetime, until halfway across the world, the plane disappears...

Reporting on it all back home is Sarah's boyfriend, Fleet Street aviation correspondent Daniel Anderson, whose job it is to uncover the truth. Where in the world are they? And what is really going on?

From Australia's master of the historical blockbuster comes this highly entertaining adventure-romance about an ambitious and heroic pair. Glory Girl is an unforgettable story about the risks they take and the sacrifices they make for their chance of glory.' (From the publisher's website.)
