Her Last Flight
Her Last Flight: A Novel | Beatriz Williams
The beloved author returns with a remarkable novel of both raw suspense and lyric beauty the story of a lost pilot and a wartime photographer that will leave its mark on your soul. In 1947, photographer and war correspondent Janey Everett arrives at a remote surfing village on the Hawaiian island of Kauai to research a planned biography of forgotten aviation pioneer Sam Mallory, who joined the loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War and never returned. Obsessed with Sams fate, Janey has tracked down Irene Lindquist, the owner of a local island-hopping airline, whom she believes might actually be the legendary Irene Foster, Mallorys onetime student and flying partner. Fosters disappearance during a round-the-world flight in 1937 remains one of the worlds greatest unsolved mysteries. At first, the flinty Mrs. Lindquist denies any connection to Foster. But Janey informs her that the wreck of Sam Mallorys airplane has recently been discovered in a Spanish desert, and piece by piece, the details of Fosters extraordinary life emerge: from the beginnings of her flying career in Southern California, to her complicated, passionate relationship with Mallory, to the collapse of her marriage to her aggressive career manager, the publishing scion George Morrow. As Irene spins her tale to its searing conclusion, Janeys past gathers its own power. The duel between the two women takes a heartstopping turn. To whom does Mallory rightfully belong? Can we ever come to terms with the loss of those we love, and the lives we might have lived?

Post WWI to pre WWII historically fictionalized women fascinate me, so of course I was all in when the two timelines were 1928-1937 and 1947. I also got a kick out the 1947 Janey uncovering the early story with sidebars to explain to the reader how it was for women in 1928.

Enjoyed this book from Sharon‘s TBR. Picked this for the #sharreadsreadathon hosted by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @CBee
Although the story hops around a lot, I found it easy to follow. Story revolves around a female pilot in the 1930‘s. I always enjoy Beatriz Williams books.

If the early days of aviation interest you, if you waited to hear if the bones found (and lost) on a small Pacific Island were Amelia Earhart‘s, if you like historical fiction with strong women, you‘ll appreciate this novel. It‘s engaging, well researched, and filled with twists that keep the reader turning the pages. Full review at https://booknaround.blogspot.com/2021/01/review-her-last-flight-by-beatriz.html

A tad predictable, but just as well written and entertaining as ever. Perfect for anyone who's ever been fascinated by Amelia Earhart (while this is not a fictionalized version of her story, the inspiration is clear). I have to be in a certain mood for historical fiction to click, and luckily this timed well with my library hold 👏🏽 3.5⭐️

I absolutely loved this book! I loved Sam and Irene. I thought their love story was wonderful. It was well written and a fairly quick read. I‘ve never read anything else by this author but definitely will
In the future. Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins for the ARC!
