This compelling novel is the tale of Sophie Blanchard, the famous 1800's era female balloonist. Her husband, Jean-Pierre Blanchard, is an aeronaut: a balloonist with a healthy fear of the skies and a mind set upon more earthly matters. He dreams of becoming rich, and his ticket to fame and fortune lies in his young bride, who takes to the skies in his stead and soon finds herself beloved by all alike: poor provincial citizens; powerful political players like Napoleon Bonaparte; and intellectuals and innovators like Goethe and Daguerre. Exquisitely researched, carefully imagined, and poignantly told by Linda Donn, The Little Balloonist is an inventive mix of historical fiction, bittersweet romance, and fable. While not a purely factual account of the very real Madame Blanchard, the author creates a unique and wonderful tale that is highlighted by our wonderful sport of hot air ballooning! Hardback, 206pp., illustrated.
