France during the Belle Epoque. When determined dreamers conquer the skies in the first flying machines, a daring new breed of adventurers capture the imagination of the world as they reach for the stars - and awaken a new instrument of destruction. One woman, driven by love and the need to redeem the tranished legacy of her father, becomes the unlikely heroine who discovers that her destiny is entwined with this new world of flight waiting to be born. This is the historical backdrop of award-winning journalist Ed Leefeldt's stunning literary novel, The Woman Who Rode the Wind, a romantic and richly authentic story that celebrates the indomitable spirit of the early pioneers of the clouds like Amelia Earhart and Harriet Quimby.
