Great Circle by Maggie Shipstead 589 pages

It is 1909 and Marian Graves and her twin brother, Jamie, are rescued from a sinking ship by their father. Their mother goes down with the ship, and after the rescue, they never see their father again. Living with their Uncle Wallace in Missoula, Montana, Jamie grows up to become an artist and Marian a somewhat famous airplane pilot. In 2015 her life is made into a movie, and the young actress who portrays her learns much about Marian as well as herself.

Great Circle is the kind of novel I thoroughly enjoy. It has great character development, an exciting, intriguing plot, historical relevance and Maggie Shipstead knows how to write.
