I spent the entirety of last year writing a new novel. And while I talked about that process some here, for the most part I kept my thoughts and fears and excitement to myself. I wanted to keep the novel close for that short amount of time that it belonged solely to me. I wanted to pour my energy into the book itself (sometimes this is the hardest part of writing) instead of talking about the book. But it’s now a completed thing with a life of it’s own and will be published exactly four weeks from today. So I wanted to take a minute to officially introduce FLIGHT OF DREAMS and let you know how you can win an early copy, along with some other goodies, from my wonderful friends at Doubleday.
My lovely publisher is running a Chatterbox giveaway from now until the end of January and has graciously offered to let one of you fine readers win one of the limited book boxes. See the photo and details below for entry.
And without further ado, I present to you, FLIGHT OF DREAMS.
From a dazzling new voice in historical fiction, FLIGHT OF DREAMS is an utterly suspenseful, heart-wrenching novel that vividly brings the last voyage of the Hindenburg to life.
On the evening of May 3rd, 1937, ninety-seven people board the Hindenburg for its final, doomed flight to Lakehurst, New Jersey. Among them are a frightened stewardess who is not what she seems; the steadfast navigator determined to win her heart; a naive cabin boy eager to earn a permanent spot on the world’s largest airship; an impetuous journalist who has been blacklisted in her native Germany; and an enigmatic American businessman with a score to settle. Over the course of three hazy, champagne-soaked days their lies, fears, agendas, and hopes for the future are revealed.
FLIGHT OF DREAMS is a fiercely intimate portrait of the real people on board the last flight of the Hindenburg. Behind them is the gathering storm in Europe and before them is looming disaster. But for the moment they float over the Atlantic, unaware of the inexorable, tragic fate that awaits them.
Brilliantly exploring one of the most enduring mysteries of the twentieth century, FLIGHT OF DREAMS is that rare novel with spellbinding plotting that keeps you guessing till the last page and breathtaking emotional intensity that stays with you long after.
