Set in 1930s Canada, this novel tells the story of Willa and Grace, two female pilots attempting to break the world record for non-stop flight. As they take to the air, the focus shifts to Maddy, a young girl who idolizes the two women whilst fearing for her safety as the Canadian Nazis move in.

Humphreys is a proper storyteller: she takes you up into the air with two women pilots of the Amelia Earhart variety in 1930s Canada, at a time when the depression and Hitler's violence against the Jews are infecting the Earth. In the sky, two women battle to break an aviation record. The poetic descriptions are not afflicted with pretentiousness: her style is simple and physical. (Kirkus UK)
