Publisher's Description

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?

Endorsements

“Carrie Turansky’s latest novel swept me back a hundred years into the elegant world of a wealthy British family named Grayson and the dangerous mission of an aviator intent on crossing the English Channel with his flying machine. Once again, I savored Carrie’s beautiful description of England, and as a writer and daughter of a commercial pilot, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about both aviation and journalism in 1909. With its compelling mystery and romance, Across the Blue was a pure delight to read!”
—Melanie Dobson, award-winning author of Catching the Wind and Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor


“Across the Blue provides a fascinating insight into the early days of aviation whilst also delving into questions of identity. Readers of sweet romance will enjoy the blossoming relationship between a young man of questionable birth and the young lady of privilege, whose dreams surge beyond societal expectation. Carrie masterfully weaves issues of faith and vivid descriptions into this story of hope and determination, with exciting scenes destined to make your pulse soar!”
—Carolyn Miller, author of Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series


“With all the elegance and intrigue of Downton Abbey, Across the Blue is an exciting tale that features the race to be the first to fly across the English Channel. I admired the spunk in heroine Isabella Grayson and her dream to become a journalist. She’s the perfect match for the determined James Drake, a hero that lives on even after you close the book. This story is one of Carrie Turansky’s finest!”
—Michelle Griep, award-winning historical romance author of 12 Days at Bleakly Manor
