Fleeing a passionless marriage in 1920s Australia, 23-year-old Jessie Miller arrives in London and meets Captain William Lancaster, married himself and fresh from the Royal Air Force. Eager to compete with Charles Lindbergh, Lancaster will fly from London to Melbourne, and in Jessie he's found the perfect co-pilot. Telling a tale of adventure and romance, Corey Mead also chronicles how the 1929 Stock Market Crash grounded these pilots. Beginning to write her memoir, Jessie is helped by a dashing young journalist, and their liaison will precipitate a shocking crime and a scandalous trial.
