Great Circle by Maggie Shipstead, our August eRead of the Month selection, is an epic, soaring novel perfectly suited for your final weeks of summer reading.
When Marian Graves meets a barnstorming pilot in a beat-up plane as a young girl, it inspires in her an obsession with flight. A dubious arrangement with a wealthy bootlegger allows her to pursue her dream, although the concessions she makes to do so continue to haunt her. Spanning a century and filled with nuanced characters and intricate relationships, this is a classic that will have you lingering over every page, wishing it didn’t have to end.
