Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky




Isabella had a dream.  She wanted to write for her father's newspaper.  But in order to do this, she had to deny who she was and write under a pseudonym.  Society dictated that she was to concentrate on finding a husband and put these dreams to the wayside.

James Drake didn't know his true identity.  His mother died under mysterious circumstances.  Why didn't his father and/or grandfather claim him?  \

He dreamed of flying and winning the Grand Prize that the newspaper offered for the first to fly across the English Channel. His worth was based on whether or not his flying machine was successful.

Isabella's father bought the fancy estate with the previous families' heirlooms in it.  His motivation was to impress and to "bridge the gap between old money and new, and close the distance between himself and those who inherited rank, titles, and respected family names."

 Isabella and James both dreamed for things that were almost inaccessible to them because of their gender or class.

How can they bridge the gap and find their happiness?

Great read.  I loved it.
