Isabella longs to become a reporter but her parents have other plans for her, hoping to secure their position in society by Bella's marrying well. When Bella writes an anonymous article that impresses her father, they strike a bargain--she can write articles about aviation provided she accepts a marriage proposal within the next year. Enter James Drake, a pilot who dreams of being the first to fly across the English Channel. He lacks the breeding Isabella's parents are hoping for, but will that prevent them from finding love?

This was a sweet Christian romance. I loved that the setting was the early 1900s, when aviation was still new and exciting. It's a time period that hasn't been overdone and it made a nice change from regency settings. And I learned a little more about aviation, which is always a nice benefit of historical fiction. This is the first of Carrie Turansky's books I've read, but I'm looking forward to catching up on her others.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
