Taking up where Flambards (1968, p. 1227, J-481) abruptly left them, lover-cousins Will and Christina land in Aunt Grace's London flat after their Rolls-Royce escape from home. What worked in the romantic, countrified scene of the first book is lost in this flight into "reality": he's eighteen now with a bum leg, an adept pilot seeking a chance to prove it; she's a year younger, orphaned, and anxious to support herself until they are both 21 and exempted from Will's father's custody (it's 1912). The story accelerates as everything is put aright, job-wise, money-wise, love-wise, and finally marriage-wise; its sole sustaining conflict is Christina's heart-in-mouth terror of flying counterposed to Will's insistence that she be brave and tearless. Flambards is safer territory for all concerned - The Edge of the Cloud a precarious place indeed. (Kirkus Reviews)
Christina and Will have escaped Flambards for London with their heads full of dreams, only to find a whole new set of problems. Not only the basic ones of work and a place to live, but Will's single-minded ambition to desing and pilot flying machines, which terrify Christina every time he leaves the ground. Will is certain he can become a success, but what price is he willing to pay for the glory? A Carnegie Medal winner in 1969, this novel is now reissued in a smaller format mass-market paperback.
