"Heartfelt and bittersweet. A delightful read, this beautifully written book comes highly recommended." Goodreads


1930s England: will the sunny days of ships, flying and love ever end?

Eliza McKee sails away to a new life in London, where her glamorous aunt Izabel is a star with a secret to hide.

Her brother Pete yearns to fly, but has no idea how much he needs to learn from fierce pilot Billie Quinn.

Eliza’s friend Harry loves golden Charlotte, but Charlotte just loves gambling with flyboy Pete’s heart.

And when a great white barque encounters the coast one foggy night, more than an era of sail finds itself tested to the limits.


Testing the Limits is the first book in the Tempo series, by the winner of the Mountbatten Maritime Award and the Western Australian Premier’s Book Award for Non-Fiction.
