Marie was no ordinary woman … at fifteen, when her mother died, she raised her siblings, learned four different languages including Esperanto, got a degree, became a prize-winning cook, dancer, gymnast, swimmer, fencer, bob-sledder and canoed from Paris to Germany. However, she longed for something more. She longed to fly. Come on an odyssey of the skies and discover the incredible life and adventures of one of France’s first female aviators, otherwise known as the Fiancée of Danger. This is a magical tale of a young woman’s yearning for unbound freedom.
