「在麥克蓮自信的筆下,白芮兒‧瑪克罕活了起來,而身為讀者的我們能充分理解,是什麼造就了這名女性得以走在時代的前端,並且相信自己有能力一飛沖天。」--茱迪.皮考特,《姊姊的守護者》作者

「就如同富有雄心壯志的主角,《Circling the Sun》大膽且迷人,使人很容易被吸引。白芮兒‧瑪克罕也許曾經有過不只一段婚姻,但她不是任何人的太太。」--《娛樂周刊》(Entertainment Weekly)

「寶拉.麥克蓮對細節的注重與優雅的文風,表現得遊刃有餘,捕捉了複雜感情關係的細微之處、社會規範的僵化、以及非洲寬闊的天空與令人讚嘆的壯闊風景。」--克莉絲汀娜.貝克.克蘭(Christina Baker Kline),《孤兒列車》  (Orphan Train)作者

在《我是海明威的巴黎妻子》作者的最新力作中,帶領讀者回到1920年代的肯亞,使無懼的迷人傳奇女子白芮兒‧瑪克罕(Beryl Markham)躍然紙上。

白芮兒從小自英國移居肯亞,但母親不久後便返回英國,她則由父親與當地住民吉普斯吉族人(Kipsigis)撫養長大。在非傳統的教育方式下,白芮兒成長為一位大膽的年輕女子,熱愛所有野生事物,也自然而然的理解自然生態的微妙平衡。然而,她在十六歲時,卻陷入一段糟糕的婚姻,但白芮兒沒有因此被現實擊倒;她藉由面對這項現實,掌握了自己的命運。

她離開丈夫,震驚了上流社會,然後成為第一位擁有職業賽馬訓練師執照的女性。她異於常人的處事風格,吸引了「Happy Valley set」的注意力:他們是來自歐洲的旅外人士社群,大多由冒險家與貴族組成,活動範圍在肯亞與烏干達,有著屬於自己的一套生活方式,過著不受拘束、波西米亞式的享樂生活,她隨之陷入其中成員獵人Denys Finch Hatton與《遠離非洲》(Out of Africa)作家凱倫‧白烈森(Karen Blixen)的三角戀情。然而,也正是因為這一段悲劇性的戀情,讓白芮兒覺醒,找到真實的自己與她的宿命:航向天際。她成為第一位獨自由大西洋東岸飛越至西岸的女性飛行員。


"NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, "BOOKPAGE, "AND "SHELF AWARENESS" "" Paula McLain is considered the new star of historical fiction, and for good reason. Fans of "The Paris Wife" will be captivated by "Circling the Sun, "which . . . is both beautifully written and utterly engrossing. Ann Patchett, "Country Living" 
Paula McLain, author of the phenomenal bestseller "The Paris Wife, " now returns with her keenly anticipated new novel, transporting readers to colonial Kenya in the 1920s. "Circling the Sun" brings to life a fearless and captivating woman Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen, who as Isak Dinesen wrote the classic memoir "Out of Africa." 

Brought to Kenya from England as a child and then abandoned by her mother, Beryl is raised by both her father and the native Kipsigis tribe who share his estate. Her unconventional upbringing transforms Beryl into a bold young woman with a fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of nature s delicate balance. But even the wild child must grow up, and when everything Beryl knows and trusts dissolves, she is catapulted into a string of disastrous relationships. 

Beryl forges her own path as a horse trainer, and her uncommon style attracts the eye of the Happy Valley set, a decadent, bohemian community of European expats who also live and love by their own set of rules. But it s the ruggedly charismatic Denys Finch Hatton who ultimately helps Beryl navigate the uncharted territory of her own heart. The intensity of their love reveals Beryl s truest self and her fate: to fly. 

Set against the majestic landscape of early-twentieth-century Africa, McLain s powerful tale reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time, the exhilaration of freedom and its cost, and the tenacity of the human spirit.
