1904, Alexandra Palace, London. When a couple of showmen need a stand-in for a trick that involves shooting an apple off a human target's head, sixteen-year-old Dolly Shepherd volunteers on the spot. Little does she know that this will be the first of many stunts and the start of a sensational career. But the life of a parachutist is as dangerous as it is daring, and there will be many close shaves along the way ...

Pioneering aviatrix Dolly Shepherd comes alive in this thrilling reimagining of her death-defying life from bestselling author Karen McCombie.
