Mary S. Lovell is author of the international bestselling biography Straight on Till Morning: The Biography of Beryl Markham and other acclaimed biographies on Sir Richard Burton, Jane Digby, the Mitford Girls, Betty “Cynthia Pack”, and Bess of Hardwick. She lives in Hampshire, England.From Library Journal:
Both of these new biographies on Earhart are exceedingly well-researched and clearly written. Although they have the same biographical intent, they differ in their approach. Rich emphasizes Earhart's flying career and the stories and personalities behind her accomplishments. Hers is a scholarly account of Earhart's life, highlighting her goals, enthusiasm, and competitive pioneer spirit. Lovell, also author of Straight on Till Morning: The Biography of Beryl Markham ( LJ 9/15/87), delves more into the personalities of Earhart and George Palmer Putnam, her media-wise husband. Earhart's personality and character and the relationships with family and friends as they contributed to her accomplishments are the main thrust. The book also contains excerpts from Last Flight , Earhart's reworked logbook and notes on the fateful 1937 flight. Both books detail her life and the theories of her disappearance. They also clearly address Earhart's legacy: to dream what seems to be unattainable goals and then to acquire the skills and have the desire and determination to achieve them. Also, while Earhart is known today for her flying career and her mysterious disappearance, these books show her to be an early advocate of women's rights, equality, and world peace, who used her fame to help promote them. Both books are highly recommended; Lovell's book will appeal more to general readers. Lovell's book is a Literary Guild selection and Doubleday Book Club alternate.
