The Edge of the Cloud

The Edge of the Cloud



The First World War is looming and for young sweethearts, Christina and Will, their adventures are just beginning as they head to London – their heads full of dreams. But the reality is altogether more difficult. Will has just one ambition – to design and pilot flying machines. As he strives to fulfil his dream, Christina is left to make a new life for herself around the airfield. She soon makes friends and begins to enjoy her newly-found independence but nothing will ever overcome her terror of the aeroplanes that Will loves so much. And when war breaks out, she fears the worst . . . that she may lose the man she loves for ever. A welcome reissue of this much-loved family saga, this book was the winner of the Carnegie Medal.
