Beryl Markham is a flawed character certainly probably as flawed as the real person that this fictional autobiography is based on and as flawed as most of us but I could not find a flaw in the way this story was told The writing from the first sentence describing her plane the one she flew across the Atlantic is mesmerizing and then moves to the unbelievable descriptions when she first arrived in Kenya as a little girl and in the days beyond simply beautiful writing I read an advanced copy and the publisher at the beginning reuests that you not uote anything until comparing to the final version so I won t But I really wish I could so I could give a little sense into how lush and descriptive the writing is that makes you feel as if you are standing there on that farm in Kenya or can feel what Beryl is feeling and convince people that they should read this bookAbandoned as a young girl by her mother who leaves Beryl and her father to return to England Beryl forms a bond with her father and begins a life long love affair with Kenya She becomes an amazing independent woman a horse trainer in a world dominated by men and later an aviatrix flying solo across the Atlantic Her independent spirit fostered by her aloneness as she ran wild as a child and which couldn t be tamed by school by her father or her husbands is beautiful to see I have to say Of course the book s focus is Beryl but there are many other fascinating people many of whom are expats and the relationships they have to each other many of which are extramarital Everybody seemed to be in love with someone other than their spouse And some men with multiple women as in the case of Denys Finch Hatton But that was life in this tight Kenyan community So many free spirited people or careless depending on your perspective It s heartbreaking at times but oh so uplifting at others You may not agree with everything Beryl did but what a life what strength what motivation to do what she wanted to doIf you loved Out of Africa the book and or the movie you will be enthralled You ll see the same beautiful and wild Kenya and meet again with Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hattan I wish I could do justice to the wonderful story telling and writing by Paula McLain The author notes that Markham wrote a memoir called West With the Night and I look forward to reading itThank you to Random House Publishing Group Ballantine and NetGalley

I haven t given my rare 5 star rating to a book in a long time but I am giving Circling the Sun 5 stars without any hesitation Paula McLain s fictionalization of the early part of Beryl Markham s life completely engrossed me I knew nothing about Beryl Markham before reading Circling the Sun but as told by McLaim she is a fascinating woman who grew up very unconventionally in early 20th century Kenya as the white daughter of a horse ranch owner It is a great story and the depiction of Beryl is fabulous It is such a risky venture to write a fictional account of a real historical figure There is so much room for over romanticizing for imposing contemporary sensibilities on the historical figure or for mechanically drowning readers in too much historical detail I had some reservations about McLain s depiction of Hemingway s first wife Hadley Richardson in The Paris Wife but hats off to MacLain for her depiction of Beryl Who knows if it s an accurate depiction but Beryl felt real multidimensional and although struggling against the norms grounded in her historical context And I felt right there in early 20th century colonial Kenya experiencing Beryl s sense of loss at her mother s departure when she was 5 her strong but not uite adeuate relationship with her father her bewilderment as a child bride and her ability to move on her relationships with people who helped and hindered her in being so fiercely independent her strong attachment to Kenya and nature and her humour strong sense of self and sexuality McLain does a great job depicting a world in which the options for women to live independently were close to nil and the price Beryl paid over and over for trying to do so And while it s not the main focus of the book I like the way MacLain handles the issue of colonialism it is not portrayed as a romantic backdrop it is shown as often ugly and the perverse playground of wealthy spoiled Europeans and yet a true home to someone like Beryl who didn t really belong anywhere else Highly recommended to anyone who likes strong historical female figures andor an interest in 20th century colonial Africa Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy
