“When Amelia Earhart mysteriously disappeared in 1937 during her attempted flight around the world, she was already known as America's most famous female aviator. Her sense of daring and determination, rare for women of her time, brought her insurmountable fame from the day she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane.” [excerpt from amazon.com]
This book is a love story between Amelia, a woman ahead of her time (1930’s) and George Putnam, a temperamental but influential public relations man who supported and encouraged his wife. We will explore these main characters: what drives a person to want to fly around the world solo, and discuss George as his personality greatly influenced Amelia’s successes.
