Early Review: Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky

Blurb (from Amazon):

Set in Edwardian England and ideal for readers who enjoy Julie Klassen novels, this romance about an English aviation pioneer and the girl who falls in love with him is filled with adventure and faith.
Isabella Grayson, the eldest daughter of a wealthy, English newspaper magnate, longs to become a journalist, but her parents don't approve. They want her to marry well and help them gain a higher standing in society. After she writes an anonymous letter to the editor that impresses her father, her parents reluctantly agree she can write a series of articles about aviation and the race to fly across the English Channel, but only if she promises to accept a marriage proposal within the year. When James Drake, an aspiring aviator, crashes his flying machine at the Grayson's new estate, Bella is intrigued. James is determined to be the first to fly across the Channel and win the prize Mr. Grayson's newspaper is offering. He hopes it will help him secure a government contract to build airplanes and redeem a terrible family secret. James wants to win Bella's heart, but his background and lack of social standing make it unlikely her parents would approve. If he fails to achieve his dream, how will he win the love and respect he is seeking? Will Bella's faith and support help him find the strength and courage he needs when unexpected events turn their world upside down

My Review:

Across the Blue is a fabulous upcoming release by Carrie Turansky. I enjoyed this Edwardian England era novel. I loved the historical details. The author obviously did her research. Isabella Grayson is a wonderful, strong, and admirable character. I felt like I was right with her throughout the story. And ahhhh, James Grant. Love love love the scenes with Bella and James together.

A great, clean and sweet historical. I would highly recommend this book. Definitely a well deserved 5 stars.

I received this book from Blogging for Books. This book is 100% my own honest opinion.
