Set in 1909, Across The Blue by Carrie Turansky has at it’s centre the first flight across the English Channel. Attempting this amazing feat, James Drake encounters Isabella Grayson, daughter of the Daily Mail newspaper’s owner and aspiring journalist. Both Christian, they rely on God’s guidance and support as they strive towards their dreams. Sharing this journey draws them close but several obstacles come up to prevent their relationship and reaching their goals. The book tracks their progress and development of their faith. The story has all it should to be interesting and it’s well-written with developed characters but, for me, the descriptions were too detailed and the progress too slow, I like a faster pace and slightly less intricate prose. It’s a three out for five.
