So I FINALLY finished “Circling The Sun”

My eldest sister raved and raved about it.

I should have known I would find it disappointing.

And I did.

It was decent but not wonderful like she claimed.

It is about a girl growing up in Africa in the early 1900’s

She was a tom boy and wanted to do everything any boy could do.

She grows up, becomes the first woman horse trainer and gets married and divorced twice and has an affair with her friend’s boyfriend.

She learns how to fly an aeroplane as they called them back then and dies in her eighties.


Maybe I am down playing the story, but I found it very long and rather dull.

The story is based on the life of Beryl Beckham.

yes she was a woman before her time, and she was fearless and did what she wanted.

I admire that, but still it wasn’t nearly as good as my sister raved it being.

I would give it a B.
